    I plan to just enjoy the Animation Resort's amenities on the first day of my reservation and do various theme parks on the subsequent days. Do I need a base park ticket for this first day if I just plan to stay at the resort?

    Hi Peter!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    No, you do not need to use a day on your Magic Your Way ticket to enjoy your resort hotel!  You only need to use a day if you want to enter one of the four Walt Disney World theme parks.  So, for example, you could spend a day at the resort, spend a day fishing on the lakes at Walt Disney World, spend a day golfing or playing miniature golf, spend a day shopping in Downtown Disney, and never need a Magic Your Way ticket!

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and please write back with more questions!
