ANAHEIM (AP) — Want to reserve a ride at a Disney theme park? Use the mouse.

Not Mickey Mouse — the computer kind.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs says the company’s working on a way for folks to book their entire Disney vacation from home — reserving times for rides, meals, shows and to meet Disney characters. Guests could even receive their hotel room keys in advance.

The Orange County Register says Staggs announced the program Thursday at an investor conference in Anaheim.

Staggs says the company is well into development of the patented system but he didn’t say when it will be ready.

Disney currently has a Fastpass system where visitors can reserve blocks of time for certain rides, but they must do it from a park.

    The last time I went to Disneyland will be the last time until they limit the amount of people in the park at one time!! Six of us,plus 2 kids, hundreds of dollars, 3 rides in 4 hours and so miserable we left never to return. Just not worth it because the little ones could see nothing except the backs of peoples knee’s as we dragged them through the crowds. It was MISERABLE
