Walt Disney World’s Park Pass Reservation System
This new park reservation system will help Guests plan ahead for their trip and help manage attendance. All Guests with valid park tickets will be required to make reservations for each park entry using a new online tool. During this reopening period, each Guest must have a valid park ticket and park reservation for the same park and the same day.
Booking Dates for Park Reservations:
- Beginning June 22, 2020, Disney Resort and other select hotel Guests with a valid theme park admission can make reservations.
- Beginning June 26, 2020, Annual Passholders without a Resort stay can make reservations.
- Beginning June 28, 2020, existing ticket holders can make reservations.
It looks like this Park Pass Reservation System is here to stay for a while. Park reservations will be available through September 26, 2021, based on your Resort stay and ticket eligibility or ticket eligibility window.
If you booked a vacation package, your ticket eligibility is tied to your package travel dates. To make a park reservation for a different date, be sure to modify your vacation package dates.
If you have a room-only reservation at a Disney Resort or other select hotel for a stay in 2021, please call the Disney Reservation Center or call your travel professional beginning on June 24 to upgrade to a vacation package with tickets—and then make your theme park reservations.
Booking a New Vacation
Starting June 28th, Guests will be able to start booking new Disney Resort hotel packages and purchasing theme park tickets and making their Park Pass reservations for arrivals starting in 2021. Guests will be able to view park reservation availability online prior to purchasing their tickets.
New 2020 ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel arrivals will resume later this summer!!! This will be based on availability of park reservations.
