    I am a teacher and will be purchasing my tickets through GOVX, however I was also informed that I need to make a reservation. Can you give me some details on how the reservation works? Do I make the reservation after purchasing the tickets.

    Hi there Mike, and welcome to planDisney!

    As a fellow teacher, I'd like to start with a big THANK YOU for all you do. I'm glad you're rewarding yourself with a winter getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth! A Disneyland Resort vacation will be the perfect mid-year reset; I hope you have a carefree and relaxing visit.

    After purchasing your tickets, you'll need to link them to your Disneyland account and then make theme park reservations. First, use the My Disneyland drop-down menu on the Disneyland home page and select "Link Tickets." On the next screen, use the alphanumeric confirmation code alongside the bar code on your tickets to link a ticket for each party member. Next, use the same My Disneyland drop-down menu, but this time click "Ticket and Reservation Details." Scroll down until you see a blue button that says "Make or Modify Theme Park Reservations." Follow the prompts to reserve your dates and choose the theme park where you'll spend or begin each day. I recommend purchasing the Park Hopper option since bouncing between the two theme parks is so convenient. In that case, you only need to reserve the park you plan to enter first, and anytime after 11 AM, pending availability, you can make your way to the other theme park.

    I hope this has been helpful, Mike. To make your visit as relaxing as possible, summon Disney Genie+ Service as soon as you enter the theme park each day of your trip. My family and I love bypassing the standby queues at our favorite attractions at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. It helps us maximize precious vacation hours, slow our pace, and spend extra time lounging by the pool.

    Best wishes for a memorable trip, and may you return to your classroom feeling refreshed. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and have a magical day!
