    If I have made reservations to a certain park, am I guaranteed entrance? (Like they can't deny me if the park is too full?)

    Howdy Armando! 

    It’s great to see you here today at planDisney! I love it when a fellow Texan stops by with a question for us. 

    I see you’re going to visit Walt Disney World Resort for the holidays! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year at The Most Magical Place on Earth, and I’m ecstatic you get to experience the festivities. 

    Armando, when you make a theme park reservation with your valid admission, you guarantee a spot in that park. This is especially important to do in advance when you’re coming during the holidays since it gets busier around Christmastime. I will add, however, that if you plan on park hopping to a different park that is showing at full capacity at 2 p.m., you won’t be able to take advantage of the park hopper to that specific theme park, as it is subject to availability. 

    I hope you’re excited to learn that the Holiday festivities will be ongoing from November 11 through December 31, 2023! One of my favorite parts during the season is visiting EPCOT, which embraces holiday traditions worldwide! EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will be in full swing, and I hope you love the Holiday Kitchens with delicious and merry offerings as much as I do. This international yuletide extravaganza is incredible as you taste the seasonal recipes from around the world at special kiosks! During this time, I love grabbing a Disney Gift Card wristlet as it makes purchasing food at the kiosks convenient and seamless. It’s a Disney Gift Card that you’re able to slip on your wrist as you make your way to try the offerings at the festival. You’ll find these special-edition cards at merchandise locations throughout EPCOT and at select EPCOT resort area hotels for the length of the festival while supplies last. 

    Having a sweet tooth, I also love the Holiday Cookie Stroll! This scrumptious activity allows you to enjoy various sweet treats while strolling around the World Showcase! 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Armando!
