    do i need to reserve everything in the parkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

    Hiya Zeena!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you are planning to visit the theme parks so soon, as you will be there right in time for some extra magical offerings returning! 

    Now, let's talk about what you need to do to ensure your vacation is absolutely magical! Valid theme park admission now requires theme park tickets and a valid theme park reservation. The way this works is that when you purchase your theme park tickets, you will also have to book the park you intend to visit. This is especially great for busy days as you do not need to worry about the theme parks reaching capacity before you walk into the parks! These reservations are made online, so make sure to book your reservations in advance to visit the theme parks of your choice! If your tickets include the Park Hopper option, you will only need to book reservations for the first park you intend to visit.

    Once you have your theme park reservations, you can also book other reservations to add magic to your trip! For example, I always love to book certain dining reservations as Disney has some truly incredible dining options. Some of my favourites include the Nomad Lounge and Tiffins Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, Grand Floridian Cafe at Disney's Grand Floridian and Spa, and Boma - Flavors of Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Still, I also highly recommend unique experiences like Magic Kingdom Park's Be Our Guest or EPCOT's Space 220 Restaurant. If you want to purchase Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes, these services can only be purchased and used on the day of your visit, so you do not have to book anything in advance. However, Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes, much like dining reservations, are entirely optional.

    I hope this was helpful, Zeena, and that you will have the best day ever on your upcoming Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach back out! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney.

    Have a magical day,
