    We are visiting and staying at the resort December 22 through December 27th do we need to make appointments to go to theme parks before we arrive or just go to any resort anytime

    Welcome to planDisney, Trezenda. I'm happy to help you with your Walt Disney World Resort holiday visit.

    All Guests are required to make Theme Park Reservations until January 9, 2024. This means that if you are visiting the theme parks before then, you would need to make Theme Park Reservations for each day you are planning to visit a theme park. If you are purchasing a ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you will only need to make a Theme Park Reservation for the first park you visit each day. Then, you will be able to hop to another park after 2 p.m. as long as you have already scanned into your first park. Since you are going at a very popular time that usually sees reservations sell out, I highly recommend that you purchase your theme park tickets and secure your Theme Park Reservations sooner rather than later to guarantee entry.

    In addition to making reservations for the parks, you will also want to make advanced dining reservations for any table-service restaurants you'd like to experience. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can do this for your entire trip (up to 10 days) starting at 6 a.m. 60 days before your arrival date. All other Guests can make reservations 60 days before each date that they want to dine, one day at a time. Once again, since you're going at a very popular time, you'll want to try to make these reservations as soon as possible.

    Trezenda, your holiday is going to be a holiday like no other. Between the decorations, the parades, the entertainment, and just the magic of the resort, you'll be making memories to last a lifetime. As Belle in Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas once sang, as long as our guiding star shines above, there will always be Christmas. So there will always be a time when the world is filled with peace and love. My friend, I hope you enjoy that peace and love with the special ones around you. Just make sure to remember their smiles, their laughter, and their joy so you'll always have a special place for them in your heart.

    If you have any other questions, please reach out to me. I'd be happy to help!

    Hope is the greatest of the gifts we'll receive,
