    We are traveling after January 9th and purchased a 3-day park pass. Do we just show up to the park of our choice each morning? Just confirming there is no additional reservation necessary and no chance the park will be unavailable.

    Hi Shannon!

    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow and your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is under a week away! Thanks for stopping by planDisney about park reservations on your upcoming visit and I'm happy to help clarify the changes taking place.

    As of January 9, 2024, guests with date-based tickets no longer require theme park reservations.  You are correct in your understanding that you simply show up at the park of your choice and get ready to have a magical day!  If you purchased tickets which include the Park Hopper Option, the current restrictions which restrict park hopping to after 2PM each day will also be lifted as of January 9, 2024.  Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks are always subject to capacity limitations, but my personal observations have seen this occur very rarely and typically during the week between Christmas and New Year's Day.  

    If you haven't already, I recommend downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile App.  This provides many valuable features to help you maximize your time in the parks.  When visiting Walt Disney World Resort, I like purchasing Disney Genie+ service to make the most of my day.  You ain't never had a friend like Genie+, as it allows you to reserve Lightning Lane entrances for select rides and attractions.  Another time saving tip I like to use in the parks is taking advantage of Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering.  Inside of the My Disney Experience Mobile App, you can place your food order at many Quick-Service dining locations and select an available return time.  You'll receive a notification when your food is ready without spending time waiting in long lines!  

    Shannon, I hope you enjoy a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious vacation!  Please feel free to stop by and see me or my pals here at planDisney again with any other questions you may have!

    See ya real soon,
