    I am planning to visit in October. When I make a Walt Disney World Resort reservation will this guarantee me theme park reservations as well?

    Hi, Chad! Welcome to planDisney! 
    I'm so happy that you're planning an October trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! Fall is my favorite time to visit. I love the weather! 
    I also love that you're planning to stay at a Disney Resort hotel. From the fantastic transportation options and the whimsical, impeccable designs and decorations, you'll be in for a treat. I shared some of my favorites in a previous answer, so feel free to check them out before choosing the perfect Disney Resort hotel for your visit. They are all superbly designed, but I'm sure that one of them is uniquely perfect for your trip. 
    After securing your reservation, though, you will still have to purchase tickets and then secure your booking to enter the Theme Parks. The Walt Disney World Resort is currently using the Disney Park Pass system to manage Theme Park capacity, and it will allow you to find the perfect Theme Park to visit each day. 
    Your hotel reservations, tickets, and Theme Park reservations will all be connected to your My Disney Experience account. You will also use your account to use the Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering system, as well as to make dining reservations. Because of that, I suggest that you create an account and download the My Disney Experience mobile app as soon as possible so that you can familiarize yourself with your very own keys to the magic. The app is so cool that I often open it here in California, just to check wait times for attractions and restaurant menus! 
    I hope that we can help you make this wonderful trip come true in October, Chad. If you want tips on which Disney Resort hotel to choose, or what dining reservations to make, please let us know. Our planDisney team will be here waiting for your questions! 

    May the magic be with you,
