    I have upgraded my 1 day tickets to park hopper tickets for the 23rd. It says I have to make a park reservation, I've tried to do so online and its getting confusing. I don't have an annual pass, does the reservation apply to me?

    Hi, Allison! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Only three more days until your jolly holiday at the Walt Disney World Resort begins! If you ask me, there's no better way to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year than a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Allison, I'm so glad you stopped by with this question. Since the Walt Disney World Resort reopened last year, the way we've planned our vacations has changed a bit. One of the biggest changes is the need for a theme park reservation. Disney now requires that all Guests like us make a Disney Park Pass reservation before we enter the parks. That's true for Guests holding any kind of admission, whether an Annual Pass, a multi-day ticket, or a single-day ticket. I'll walk you through how to make those reservations right here.

    First, once you've purchased your tickets, you need to link them to your My Disney Experience account. When your ticket is linked, head over to the Disney Park Pass page on the Walt Disney World website and click on the blue "Theme Park Tickets" button to get started. Then, follow the prompts to create your party, select the date and park you want to visit, and confirm. And that should do it! You'll see your reservation in the "My Plans" section of your account.

    You may run into a little trouble if you're trying to make a reservation for a park that doesn't have availability that day. In that case, you'll need to either keep checking back in case something opens up, or choose a different theme park to visit. Also, since you have the Park Hopper Option on your tickets, keep in mind that you only need a reservation for the first park you'll be visiting each day. As long as the other parks haven't reached capacity, you're free to start hopping after 2 p.m.!

    I hope this is helpful for you, Allison. If you still need advice or assistance, please hop on back over to see us with another question. We're always up for a chat about planning Disney vacations!

    Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you and your family a magical holiday!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

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
