    I have a scheduled reservation at Art of Animation from 10/7-10/14. I have three park passes. When can I start booking the dates for each park? Also - when can I start booking rides for the parks? Is it 60 days in advance like the dining options?

    Hello Molly! Welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us, I hope I can help you plan your most magical vacation yet! Disney's Art of Animation Resort is one of my family's favorite Disney Resorts Collection hotels.  The first time we stayed there my then 3-year-old loved the Little Mermaid rooms so much that she asked to go back EVERY DAY.  Being completely immersed in the magic during the day at the Parks, as well as at night in your Guest room, just makes the entire Walt Disney World Resort vacation feel like a dream!

    There are so many things to love about this Resort, from its Big Blue Pool, to Landscape of Flavors, the delicious dining area, to the very best part, its convenience to the Disney Skyliner.  I know you're really going to love your stay.  Being able to "fly" from your Resort to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios is like boarding your first attraction before you even get to the Theme Parks!  

    Molly, it sounds like you have purchased your Theme Park Tickets and are ready to secure your Park Pass Reservations for each day! You're welcome to make your Park Pass Reservations right now as long as your tickets have been purchased and linked to your My Disney Experience account.  I would suggest making these reservations as soon as possible because Park reservations can fill up!

    When it comes to reserving return times for rides, things may be a little bit different than you remember from past visits.  Walt Disney World Resort now offers the Disney Genie+ Service, with Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane choices, and this will be the way you book your times to return to rides without waiting in line!  All Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels are able to make their first Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane selections a 7 a.m. on the day of their visit to each Park.  You can choose to purchase Genie+ for your entire visit or one day at a time, but each day you will make new selections for each Park.  

    I highly suggest watching the Genie+ video in the link above and reading through the material on the website.  It's chock-full of great information about how to maximize your day with the Genie!

    Please stop by and see us again if you have any more questions about your upcoming stay!
