Walt Disney World has finally announced details about the reservation system that will be used by theme park visitors when the resort reopens in July.
The Disney Park Pass System, which is not yet available, will operate through disneyworld.com (desktop or mobile), and registration via a My Disney Experience account will be required. Visitors must have a valid park ticket or an annual pass to secure reservations.
Once everything is linked, there will be a calendar with available dates for each Disney World theme park. Tickets between family members and friends can be tied together.
Holders of multi-day tickets must make reservations for each day of the visit.
Disney Parks states:
Guests will be able to select one park per day; visiting more than one park per day will be temporarily unavailable upon the reopening of the theme parks due to attendance limitations. We hope to bring back the ability to visit more than one park per day soon.
After reservations are finalized, visitors will be able to view them on the My Disney Experience app.
The park-hopper option will be offered for 2021 ticket purchases. Visitors who paid for park-hopping powers already will receive reimbursement and cancellation options, Disney said.
Walt Disney World has also made some major adjustments. This week it was revealed that Disney has canceled Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party event nights for 2020 as well as this fall’s Eat to the Beat concerts tied to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
Annual passholders and other ticket holders will be contacted by Disney World about when they will be able to make park reservations on the new system, which will also be introduced in phases.
Sales of 2020 tickets will resume “later this summer,” Disney said, based on the availability of park reservations.
By June 28, Disney says, new hotel packages and park tickets/reservations for 2021 will be available. Visitors will be able to see park reservation availability on DisneyWorld.com before buying tickets.
