    I am trying to use the app to plan our day at the magic kingdom park. But I have been unable to complete the task. Aren’t rides and activities supposed to be planned ahead? Do I need a special pass or something to be able to plan those rides and/or activit

    Hi Graciella,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to hEAR that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    In the past, we used to plan for FastPass+ but that service has been paused for the time being and is not currently being offered. With FastPass+ service, we could reserve three ride time windows per day in advance of our visit. Now, you only need to make Disney Park Pass system reservations. Make sure your theme park tickets are linked in My Disney Experience and check the theme park reservation availability calendar as you try to make those park pass reservations.

    On my last visit, the lines for attractions were quite manageable. They looked super long because people were spacing out in the lines, but they typically did not take more than 30-40 minutes. Looking at your arrival date, I do suggest that you make advanced dining reservations. Those are important, especially in the summer heat. We use our dining reservations to take an air-conditioned break from the theme park action.

    Remember that there are character dining experiences. Our favorite character dining experience is Topolino's  Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck dressed in their artistic best always makes us smile. We also love the views from this restaurant. They are quite lovely.

    Graciella, your trip is fast approaching. Check out our Top 10 Packing Tips and get your bags ready. Take a look at the shirts available in shopDisney. Every crew needs matching shirts! We are ready to welcome you back to the magic!

    Magic and memories,
