    Hi Nigel! 

    Welcome to planDisney! It's great to have you stop by! Your Walt Disney World holiday is fast approaching. I'm sure you are excited about all the magical experiences that are coming your way!

    Theme park reservations are required for entry into the first park you plan to visit each day. Whether you want to get there bright and early or just show up for the nighttime spectacular, you will need a park reservation to enter. Since you do have the Park Hopper Option added to your tickets, you will be allowed to hop to any of the other theme parks after you visit the first one you have a reservation for. Park hopping hours begin at 2 PM, so if you have already checked into the first park, you can visit any of the remaining three at this time. Park hopping is the best way to create flexibility in your park day. If you want to explore the World Showcase at EPCOT earlier in the day, but want to catch Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios at night, the Park Hopper Option allows you to experience it all!

    Nigel, with your visit at the beginning of May, you'll be arriving just in time to take part in some new and returning experiences. TRON Lightcycle / Run is set to open at the Magic Kingdom on April 4th! This new thrill ride is the perfect addition to Tomorrowland and is sure to be an exhilarating ride. Happily Ever After is making its return to the nighttime sky in April at the Magic Kingdom as well. I was sad to see this one end when it did but I'm ecstatic that is coming back! 

    I hope you have a magical holiday, Nigel! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
