    Do I need to make a park day reservation

    Hello Crystal!

    Greetings from all of us here at planDisney! It's an absolute delight to assist you as you prepare for an enchanting visit to Walt Disney World Resort. We're here to sprinkle some pixie dust on your vacation planning, ensuring that every detail is taken care of so your time at the resort is as magical and seamless as possible.

    Regarding your question about the necessity of making a theme park reservation, there has been a recent update to the Walt Disney World theme Park reservation system that simplifies your planning process. Initially, Walt Disney World Resort required all guests to make a theme park reservation in addition to holding a valid admission ticket. This system was in place to manage the parks' capacity and enhance the overall guest experience. However, Walt Disney World Resort has updated its policy to further improve your visit. Now, guests with date-based tickets no longer need to make a separate theme park reservation. This means that for your upcoming visit, as long as your tickets are date-specific, you're all set to enter the parks without the extra step of securing a theme park reservation.

    Please note, for other types of admission, such as Annual Passes or Park Hopper tickets, the theme park reservation requirements may vary. We highly recommend checking the latest details through the My Disney Experience app or the official Walt Disney World Resort website. These platforms are also your go-to resources for everything from making dining reservations to checking wait times for your must-see attractions, ensuring your trip is as magical as can be.

    A helpful tip to enhance your park experience is to utilize the Mobile Order service through the My Disney Experience app. This convenient feature allows you to order food and beverages from select locations throughout the resort directly from your smartphone. It’s a great way to save time and skip the lines, giving you more freedom to enjoy the attractions, entertainment, and magical moments throughout your day.

    We're here to help make your Walt Disney World Resort vacation as dreamy as planned, Crystal. Should you have any more questions or need further assistance as you continue to plan your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out to us again. We're excited to welcome you to the magic and create memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for choosing planDisney, and see you real soon!
