    Hello is a reservation required to enter park or can we just purchase our tickets that same day??

    Hello Lorena! 

    A very warm welcome to planDisney! Thanks for bringing your question our way! 

    I’m sure you’re looking forward to your vacation to “The Happiest Place on Earth!” In order to visit a theme park, you are required to make an advanced Theme Park Reservation. This reservation is required in addition to your valid admission ticket. You can make a reservation for one theme park each day of your trip. Reservations are currently being accepted through February 2022. Please check the Availability Calendar to confirm if your desired theme park is available for your ticket type on the day you wish to visit. 

    If you are having trouble securing reservations, I recommend checking the Availablity Calendar shortly after midnight on the day of your visit. I’ve seen Guests obtain same-day reservations due to the 11:59 p.m. cancellation policy. Also, Theme Park availability varies based on ticket type. Therefore, a one-park per day ticket and a Park Hopper ticket will not have identical availability. So, I recommend you purchase whichever ticket type has availability. 

    I hope this helps! Please come back to see us here at planDisney!
