    Do I have to be at the theme park at the time I made reservations?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Damaris! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    Oh my Mickey waffles, it looks like you're going to Walt Disney World TODAY! That's just one of the many joys of living in Florida, isn't it? Let's get your Disney day started!

    You're definitely ahead of the game since you already made your Disney Park Pass reservation for today. And I have some Incredible news for you! The time that you saw when you initially made your Disney Park Pass reservation was actually just the theme park opening time. Your reservation allows you to arrive at the park anytime during operating hours. So, if you feel like sleeping in a little and heading over around lunchtime, you're good to go!

    Also, if you have a Florida Resident Annual Pass or a ticket with the Park Hopper Option added, you can visit another park when park hopping opens after 2 p.m. Just check the My Disney Experience app on your phone to verify today's hours and make sure any subsequent parks you decide to visit haven't reached capacity.

    I'm so excited for you to enjoy a magical day at Walt Disney World, Damaris! Have so much fun, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
