    Do I need to link my park passes to a specific park online before I go?

    Hello and Welcome to planDisney, Stefanie. Thanks for stopping by with your question, I'm so glad you did! 

    In addition to theme park tickets, right now Stefanie, you are also going to need to make park pass reservations to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Park pass reservations are basically like a virtual placeholder in line at the theme park you'd like to visit each day. It guarantees you entrance since the parks are still operating at a lower capacity. 

    If you haven't purchased your Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets yet, I encourage you to take a look at the Walt Disney World Theme Park availability calendar first to make sure the theme parks you'd like to go to are still accepting Guests for those days. The calendar is broken down into three categories - Guests with select resort stays, Guests with theme park tickets only and Annual Passholders. Be sure you are viewing the calendar that most pertains to you as they do all have different availability. Once you've checked out the calendar, the next step is to book your vacation package or purchase theme park tickets. If you've already done that and linked them to your MyDisneyExperience account then you are all set to make your park pass reservations. Once you are on the park pass reservation website, linked for you, you'll follow the prompts to make your choices. You are going to select your travel party, the date on the calendar and then the theme park you'd like to visit. If all goes well, you'll be taken to a confirmation page and then have the option to make more selections. You'll need to do this for each day of your vacation. 

    If you have the park hopper option, where you can visit multiple Walt Disney World Theme Parks in one day, you'll still need to make park pass reservations. But, you'll only need to make them for the initial theme park you plan on visiting each day. Then, on the day of, you'll need to visit that theme park and scan in before going to other parks. This sort of "activates" the park hopper feature each day. It is not necessary to make additional park pass reservations throughout the day to park hop. Just that first one each day is a must! 

    I hope this helps point you in the right direction! If you have any other questions, please stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
