    Do I need to reserve my date after i receive my ticket?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Terrence! I'm excited to see that your vacation is so close! I hope you're starting to pack!

    Terrence, you WILL need to make Disney Park Pass reservations in addition to holding a valid ticket to gain theme park entry. This service is complimentary, but a necessary step before arrival. Now, if you already have your tickets (a ticket confirmation number, an email confirmation for will call tickets, etc.) you are able to make plans in advance.

    You'll first want to begin by creating a My Disney Experience account if you don't already have one. After this important step, it's time to link your tickets. You can begin by clicking HERE. Once you select "Tickets" you'll be taken to a screen that asks you to log into your My Disney Experience account and then you see examples of different types of tickets and confirmation numbers. I find these examples very helpful in determining which is the correct number to enter.

    Once your tickets are linked, you're ready to make your park reservations! You can view availability in advance HERE and then easily secure your reservations through your My Disney Experience account (or via the Mobile App).

    Terrence, I hope this helps get you one step closer to the Magic. Make sure to take time on your visit to marvel at the golden statues found at all four theme parks commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort. They are the perfect photo backdrop!

    Come on back to planDisney with any other questions and have a wonderful visit!
