UPDATED August 2020: On June 22, 2020, Disney World instituted the Disney World Park Pass reservation system. This Disney World Park reservation system is designed to control crowd levels at each of the four Disney World theme parks. Here are our best tips for making Disney World theme park reservations for your next Disney World vacation.
Check The Disney World Park Pass Availability Calendar
Before booking your Disney World vacation check the Disney World Park Pass availability calendar. There are three different pools of park reservations: Resort Guests, Annual Passholders, and Theme Park Ticket Guests. Each group has their own park reservation availability.
Choose your group and the calendar indicates green for availability at all four Disney World theme parks, yellow for availability at some parks, or gray if no parks are available for that date. The reservation system is currently accepting park reservations through January 2022.
Link Your Information In My Disney Experience
Guests need a Disney My Experience account plus valid park ticket, annual pass, or park ticket plus Disney World resort stay to make a park pass reservation. Have your Disney World park tickets and resort stay linked to your My Disney Experience account before trying to make a reservation.
How Do I Make A Disney World Park Pass Reservation?
Once you are on the Park Pass reservation system, first choose your planning party, and then choose your preferred park date. Once you pick a date a calendar shows which parks have availability for that day.
Pick your preferred park. You’ll be asked to choose an arrival time. Right now the only arrival time windows are shown as “park open to close”. Then confirm your Disney World Park Pass reservation after agreeing to the terms and conditions, including a COVID-19 liability waiver.
The flow of the reservation system is very similar to making FastPass reservations in the past.
Can I Cancel A Disney World Park Pass Reservation?
Yes, access your Park Pass reservations through “My Plans” on the My Disney Experience app or website. If you click “view details” on the reservation there is an option to cancel your reservation.
Our Experience Using The Disney World Park Pass Reservation System
The first day the system went live it took us two hours and two devices to make our park reservations. Now that the system has been in place for almost two months making a Disney World Park pass reservation is extremely simple.
Currently Annual Passholders are able to book 3 Disney World Park pass reservations without a resort stay. If an Annual Passholder is staying at an on-site Disney World resort they can book park reservations equal to the length of stay at the resort plus 3 additional days.
Disney Resort Guests can book Disney World Park pass reservations equal to the number of days they have a valid theme park ticket during their stay.
Guests with day tickets, but who are not staying on-site, can make reservations equal to the number of days of valid theme park admission.
Final Thoughts On The Disney World Park Pass Reservation System
I certainly understand the need to limit crowd levels right now to accommodate social distancing at the parks. The new Disney World Park pass reservation system is easy to use once you’ve set up your My Disney experience profile with tickets and resort stays.
