    I need to get tickets for 8 adults and 4 children and 3 parking reservations, need help

    Welcome to planDisney, Adam.

    That sounds like a fun trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth. There are so many new attractions, enchanting shows, tasty treats, memorable merchandise, and dazzling decorations for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. If (like me) you're all about makin' memories, you're coming to the right place!

    You can purchase tickets really easily from the Walt Disney World website. I'm not sure how many days you're planning on visiting, but did you know that "the more you play, the less you pay per day"? In other words, the more days you visit the steeper the discount on tickets. Once you purchase your tickets, you're going to want to immediately make Theme Park reservations. You can have a look at the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar beforehand to make sure that the date(s) you want to visit are available.

    Once you do that, Adam, the fun truly begins! If you download the My Disney Experience app and create an account, you can link your tickets and use the new (and complimentary) Disney Genie service. This feature can help you plan your Theme Park day(s) in a way that prioritizes what is important to you. If you'd like to add "phenomenal cosmic powers" to your tickets, then Disney Genie+ is the way to go. This service allows you to select Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the Theme Parks. This allows you to skip past the standby line and get on attractions much quicker. 

    If you wanted to visit more than one Theme Park per day, then you could also add the Park Hopper Option to your tickets. This would allow you to visit one Theme Park in the morning, but then magically hop to another park of your choice after 2:00 p.m. (subject to availability). 

    In terms of parking, you can select either standard or preferred parking when you arrive at the parking lot entrance on the day of your visit. Preferred parking allows you to park closer to the Theme Park, but it costs a little more. In my experience, as long as you arrive early (45 minutes before the park opens) you'll be able to park pretty close anyway. It's worth remembering that your parking pass is good for the entire day across each of the Theme Parks. Therefore, if you'd like to utilize the Park Hopper Option, you can simply show your parking receipt to a Cast Member at your second park.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Adam. Think happy thoughts!
