    We’re travelling to Disney World end of August/beginning of September and we booked our flight/hotel/park ticket directly on the Disney website, is it right that we won’t need to make park reservations?

    Hey there, hi there, pal!

    You're always as welcome as can be at planDisney! Thanks for sending your question our way. I'd be delighted to discuss your upcoming adventure to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    When you booked your vacation package online with the Walt Disney Travel Company, you selected a start date for your tickets. This secures your spot in the theme parks during your holiday, so you do not need to make theme park reservations. Simply scan your Disney Band, mobile device, or plastic ticket card at the entrance to the theme park of your choice, and you'll be on your way to a day of magic and memories. Are you interested in joining a Virtual Queue or utilizing Disney Genie+ Service? Hakuna matata! No worries! Disney's system will recognize that your ticket is valid and allow you to do both during your visit.

    Although you're traveling during late summer, Walt Disney World's spooky season will already be in full swing. Just this week, dates for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party were announced. If you're considering attending this separately ticketed special event, be sure to purchase tickets soon; many evenings sell out in advance! I recommend following our Instagram account and the Disney Parks Blog for updates and news regarding fall festivities.

    I hope this was helpful! My family will also be vacationing at Walt Disney World in August, and we're keeping our fingers crossed that Tiana's Bayou Adventure will have opened by then. We can't wait to see one of our favorite Disney Princesses featured in a new attraction! Thanks again for visiting us at planDisney, and don't hesitate to drop by again if there's anything else we can do to make your holiday even more memorable.

    Have a magical day,
