    We are wanting to visit Disney parks in conjuntion with a softball tournament in March. We will NOT be staying at a Disney resort. What is the best way to make park reservations and purchase tickets for 3-4 days?

    Hello Seana, and welcome to planDisney. So glad you stopped by for your planning needs. I can definitely help you figure out the best way to grab those reservations and tickets.

    One of my first loves is baseball. Disney was first. I still play in a men's hardball league, and my daughter is a softball player too. I'm excited to see you will be visiting a warmer state to get some innings in before the ground thaws out at home. My diamonds in New Jersey are still rock solid. My go-to tool for all things Walt Disney World is the My Disney Experience App. This app is will house all your tickets and reservations for everyone in your party. And you don't have to stay at a  Disney Resort Collection hotel to use it.

    You will want to start by tapping on the "+" at the bottom of your My Disney Experience screen. From there you will see an option listed as "Make or Modify Park Reservations". It will lead you to a page where you can "View Current Availability" which is where I would start. Input your days, and when you see they are available for the park you would like to visit you can then move on to the next step which is purchasing your park admission. Once you have the tickets you can then proceed to make park reservations for whichever park you would like to visit each particular day. If you would rather speak with a cast member directly you can always Call Walt Disney World for new tickets.

    One of my favorite parts of the app is the free-to-use Disney Genie Service. This will allow you to input your interests for each park. On the day of your visit, Genie will create your best Disney day inspired by your interests. It includes a personalized itinerary that smartly maps out your day. I would also suggest becoming familiar with this app before your visit to maximize your time while vacationing. 

    Hope you find this information useful for your visit. My best advice for those tough at-bats in the late innings with runners in scoring position. Step out of the batter's box and say to yourself, "The pitcher is just as nervous, just hit it somewhere hard".

    See ya real soon!
