    Why do we have to purchase tickets before have a Disney Park Reservation? I assume we have to have a park reservation for dates that are "available"...and that you can only accommodate a certain number of guests due to Covid.

    Hello, Lisa, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for stopping by the Panel with your question. Disney has put amazing health and safety measures in place for Guests and Cast Members in response to COVID-19. As you're probably aware, all Guests ages 3 and older must have a theme park reservation to enter any of the parks. This allows Disney to monitor attendance to keep you, other Guests, and Cast Members safe.

    Making theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system is quick and easy. There is a "Know Before You Go" video online that shows Guests exactly how to make a park reservation. I've also shared simple directions below.

    To make your theme park reservations, follow these steps:

    1. Sign in to your Disney account on the My Disney Experience app.
    2. Select all members of your party from your family and friends list.
    3. Select the date you wish to visit.
    4. Select the park you want to visit.
    5. Select the time you will arrive.
    6. Review your reservation details and confirm.
    When making theme park reservations, keep in mind the number of park reservation days that Guests can hold at one time is determined by your plans:

    • Disney Resort and other select hotel Guests can make park reservations for dates during their stay for the number of days that they have valid theme park admission.
    • Annual Passholders can make theme park reservations for up to 3 days at a time, and for their length of stay if staying at a Disney Resort or other select hotel.
    • Existing ticket holders can make reservations for the number of days of valid theme park admission.
    Please let us know if we can assist you with any other questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Have a magical day!
