    Do i need to make reservations for shows?

    Hey there Dawn!

    Thanks for visiting us at planDisney today, we’re happy to have you. I’m so excited to hEAR that you are planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort. There’s nothing more exciting than being able to return to the Magic of Walt Disney World Resort. As you may already know, a few changes are happening around the parks. I’ve added this handy Know Before You Go page to help prepare you for your upcoming visit.

    Like you, I’m all for entertainment. You will be happy to know that you do not have to make reservations for the entertainment offered in each park. (You will need park reservations with a valid theme park ticket though). The entertainment does vary in each park. For example, while exploring Magic Kingdom Park keep your ears open, you might just hEAR The Dapper Dans while strolling down Main Street, U.S.A. Whereas, if you're in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and want to see For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, you will wait in a normal stand-by queue. Entertainment in EPCOT includes my favorite, the JaMMitors, and of course you won’t want to miss Animal Encounters: Winged Encounters-The Kingdom Takes Flight in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    Just keep in mind entertainment is subject to change, so be sure to check the My Disney Experience mobile app while you are in the parks for the most up-to-date times and offerings. I hope this helped answer your question, Dawn. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can help you with, we’re all EARs.

    See ya real soon!
