    I am visiting WDW for the first time in April. When going to buy my tickets, in the fine print, it say that the days I am going are BLOCKOUT DAYS. How do I buy passes for this day? Can I buy the regular 4-day ticket (maybe add park hopper option)?

    Hi Fionnuala,

    It's so exciting that you are about to experience your first Walt Disney World vacation. I know the planning can be overwhelming, so we're happy to help you sort through your ticket options.

    I believe the tickets you are looking are the special 4-Day Magic Tickets, which offer a discounted price for a ticket package that allows you to visit each of the four theme parks on a separate day. Unfortunately, the 4-Day Magic Ticket is a limited time offer that is not valid on a few peak days, including the week after Easter when you plan to visit. 

    You can still get regularly priced tickets and can add the park hopper option if you like. I've linked the regular ticket information here.

    Because you're new to Walt Disney World, make sure you pick up free "First Visit" buttons at any Guest Relations location to wear during your vacation. 

    I recommend that you spend some time on the Walt Disney World website to figure out what rides, attractions, shows, restaurants and other entertainment are most important for your family. (The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help with suggestions if you need us.) Please know that's it's impossible to see and do everything, so it's good to have a basic idea of what your family's top priorities are before you make dining reservations or choose your FastPass+ options.

    But don't over-plan. You want time along the way to relax and to take advantage of anything that catches your eye that wasn't on the schedule. Enjoy, and do drop back in here if you have other questions.
