    I know you need to make reservations to get into the parks, My dad use4d to plan my trips this is my first time planning it myself, do you need to make a reservation to get into other areas like Disney springs if I wanted to make a dinner reservation there

    Hi there, Tristen! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m glad you stopped by with your question for us. 

    Your dad sounds pretty awesome and so very relatable, especially to my planDisney pals and me! Like I always say, the next best thing to being on a magical vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth is planning one!

    Tristen, you’re already ahead of the game by knowing you need to make Disney Park Pass reservations, along with your theme park tickets, to enter the theme parks! Theme parks are, in fact, the only place you need to make a Disney Park Pass reservation for. 

    I’m happy to tell you that you do not need to make Disney Park Pass reservations to enter Disney Springs; however, some dining locations there highly recommend you make dining reservations. For instance, when my family dines at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’, I make sure to make dining reservations for us. However, if we feel like something more casual but equally as scrumptious, we can walk up to eat at Chicken Guy!

    If you’re thinking about some frosty fun in the Florida heat and heading to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, you will not need to make Disney Park Pass reservations; however, you will need to purchase tickets to enter the waterpark. 

    In case you’re interested in Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, walk-ups are welcome, and you can find pricing information here

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the magic, Tristen. If you think of any other questions for us, your pals at planDisney are all EARS! 

    Have an enchanting time.
