    We have reservations, with tickets, at the Animal Kingdom Resort November 28th - December 2, 2021. Why do I have to make a park reservation for each day when I already selected, and paid for, the Park Hopper options for our tickets with the resort?

    Hi there, Jon and welcome to planDisney!

    Jon, I LOVE Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and the authentic African feel of this property. When we last stayed there my kids were constantly in awe of walking outside and being right on the savanna. I hope you have a WILD time!

    Now, since you have your reservation secured and your tickets purchased, let’s jump in and talk about the Disney Park Pass. When the Walt Disney World Resort reopened in July 2020, to manage park capacity, this complimentary theme park reservation system was born. Currently as the Walt Disney World Resort continues to focus on enhanced health and safety, Disney Park Pass reservations are still required. While this is an extra step in your planning, I’ve found making these is as quick and easy as making an advanced dining reservation. Jon, please take a look at THIS question and answer by my fellow panelist, Jackie, about how to make those Disney Park Pass reservations.

    Jon, before I bid you adieu, I will also encourage you to check out the special anniversary fun that will be in store for you since you’ll be visiting after the 50th anniversary celebrations kick off. I can’t wait to see the skies light up with the two new nighttime spectaculars and hope that your vacation will be as Magical as fireworks over Cinderella Castle.

    If you have any other questions, please come on back to your new friends hEAR at planDisney. Like the Fairy Godmother, we are always happy to help dreams come true.
