RESORT AND TICKET OPTIONS

Important Disney Lingo

Just to keep you informed with all the Disney speak as we go along: 

 

Park Hopper Ticket:  The Park Hopper Ticket gives you the freedom to move from any of the 4 parks within a single day. If you have a base ticket you have admittance to that one park that day.

Disney Dining Plan: (Currently Unavailable) The Disney Dining plan is extremely popular and helps to give you almost an all-inclusive experience. If you are considering any Character Dining experiences, I would highly recommend the dining plan. There are 3 plans to choose from Quick Service Dining Plan, Disney Dining Plan and Deluxe Dining Plan. The most popular is the Disney Dining Plan which gives you 1 Table Service Meal,1 Quick Service Meal, 2 Snacks per person per day and a refillable resort mug also new of 2018 Alcoholic beverage per meal included for adults!!! The Deluxe Dining Plan which gives you 3 meals, 2 snacks per day pus a refillable resort mug.  You may choose quick service or table-service for any of your meals. Lunch and Dinner table service meals include an appetizer, entrée, dessert and 1 non-alcoholic OR alcoholic beverage of your choice.

Dining and Fast Pass Selection: (Fast Pass Currently Unavailable) Staying on Disney property certainly has its perks! When you are a guest on property you can make your hard-to-get dining reservations at 180 days prior to travel. You can also select your Fast Pass attractions at 60 days prior to travel - a Fast Pass is a Line Jumper pass so you don't have to wait in line!

 

Memory Maker: Memory Maker is a great add-on to your package, for $169 you can have digital access to all the photos taken by Disney Photographers, Photos on select attractions and Magic Shots! Be sure to ask your Photo Cast Member for Magic Shots! The price does increase to $199 3 days prior to travel.

 

Overnight Self-Parking

  • Standard overnight self-parking is available to registered Guests for a fee that will be applied to their hotel folio upon check-out. All parking fees include applicable tax.

 

Standard Overnight Parking charges per Resort Category:

  • Disney Value Resorts: $13 per night

  • Disney Moderate Resorts: $19 per night

  • Disney Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts: $24 per night

 

Park Reservation System: Due to COVID you are now required to reserve your park days in advance. It's best to do this as soon as you book your trip for best availability because the parks are at limited capacity to allow for social distancing and they do sell out. If you purchase a Park Hopper Ticket you will be able to hop to a different park starting at 2:00pm each day, there is a Park Hopper Hotline that you can call to see which parks are available. 

 

NEW Disney Genie App: This will replace Fast Pass System - launch date TBA

  • Get Itinerary Updates from Morning to Night: Disney Genie will continue to update your itinerary throughout your day, so you can be more spontaneous and go with the flow.

  • Find Your Favorites at a Glance: Create your very own personal tip board to instantly see your favorites. It will display current AND forecasted future wait times, helping you predict when you might experience quicker entry to attractions.

  • Enjoy More Flexibility and Fun: Disney Genie brings existing planning features together in one place. Join a virtual queue at certain attractions, make dining and experience reservations, mobile order food at many locations, get help from a virtual assistant and more.

 

For even more convenience and flexibility, there are two other options for enjoying our theme parks, through a queue we are introducing called the Lightning Lane entrance that also saves you time in line:

  • Disney Genie+ service (available for purchase): For the price of $15 per ticket per day at Walt Disney World Resort and $20 per ticket per day at Disneyland Resort, choose the next available time to arrive at a variety of attractions and experiences using the Lightning Lane entrance. You can make one selection at a time, throughout the day – from classics like Haunted Mansion to thrill rides like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and newer favorites like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run (attractions subject to limited availability). This convenient option is the next evolution of the fan-favorite Disney MaxPass service from Disneyland Resort. Disney Genie+ will also include Disney parks-themed audio experiences and photo features to capture your memories – augmented reality lenses for those visiting Walt Disney World Resort and unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads from your day if you are visiting Disneyland Resort.

  • Individual attraction selections (available for purchase): Schedule a time to arrive at up to two highly demanded attractions each day using the Lightning Lane entrance – like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park and Radiator Springs Racers at Disney California Adventure park (subject to limited availability; attractions not included with Disney Genie+). Pricing for this option will vary by date, attraction and park and will be announced closer to launch.

 

Lightning Lane selections will be made on the same day of your visit and can be used across multiple theme parks, great for those who love the Park Hopper option. Attractions continue to offer a traditional standby queue, or a virtual queue at certain attractions like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – to maximize flexibility.
