    I made a reservation but I have been unable to make a them park reservation. Do I have to pay in full before I reserve a theme park?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kimberly!

    I am thrilled to answer your wondEARful question about Disney Park Pass theme park reservations. Thank you for visiting planDisney while planning your upcoming vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Kimberly, you do not need to pay your Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation or vacation package in full before making Disney Park Pass theme park reservations. In fact, you do not need a Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation at all to access the Disney Park Pass system!

    What you do need is a valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park admission ticket linked to your My Disney Experience account. Once your theme park ticket is linked to your account, you can start making theme park reservations!

    If you haven’t already purchased your theme park tickets, please click here to do so now. Then, if your theme park tickets haven’t automatically linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can visit this page to link them. It’s that simple, Kimberly! You are now ready to access the Disney Park Pass system.

    If you would like to check out the theme park reservation availability calendar before making your reservations, please click here. I encourage you to make your theme park reservations as soon as possible as they are subject to availability and very popular. Currently, theme park reservations are available through January 2023!

    Please visit planDisney again if you have any additional questions. We love helping you plan the “practically perfect” Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
