    My mom has a old "5 day World Hopper" ticket that still has 3 stamps left on it. I have made a reservation for myself for magic kingdom but cannot reserve with their current ticket, what do we do if there are no reservations when we arrive

    Hi Adam!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Oh, what a treasure to have an old "5-day World Hopper" ticket with magic still left to enjoy! It's like finding a hidden Mickey from the past. Here's some advice on how to navigate this situation:

    Contact Disney Guest Services: The first step is to reach out to Disney Guest Services by calling the "Existing Tickets" phone number before your trip. They can provide guidance on converting the old ticket to a new format that's compatible with the current ticketing system. These vintage tickets often require special handling to update them for today's park entry systems. This may involve verifying the ticket's authenticity and remaining valid days, then linking it to your mom's My Disney Experience account.

    Here's the good news: If your mom's ticket can be converted to a date-based ticket, the requirement to book Theme Park Reservations is now a thing of the past. This change means you have the flexibility to visit Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at your convenience. You're free to choose which park to visit without the need for a reservation, giving you a more relaxed approach to planning your day.

    Despite the lack of reservation requirements, it's still beneficial to plan your day in advance. Consider Early Theme Park Entry options (if staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel), and prioritize any must-see attractions, shows, or parades to ensure you get the most out of your visit to the parks.

    I hope this helps! Wishing you and your mom a magical journey filled with wonderful new memories and a wonderful visit to Magic Kingdom Park!
