Soon it’ll be time to return to the enchantment. To zip through space, go on safari, soar around the world and take a wacky ride on a runaway railway. But before we reopen the gates, we wanted to share some important information that will help you make the most of the magic.
NEW THEME PARK RESERVATION SYSTEM
We continue to keep the health and well-being of our cast, Guests and communities top of mind, so as we take this measured approach to reopen our Theme Parks, we will manage attendance through our new Disney Park Pass system. This new Theme Park reservation system on DisneyWorld.comwill require all Guests to make advance reservations for Theme Park entry.
Passholders with an existing Disney Resort or other select hotel reservation can access the Disney Park Pass system beginning June 22, while all Annual Passholders are eligible to make Theme Park reservations starting June 26. Pass blockout dates apply and you should check the applicable blockout calendar for your pass type prior to making your Theme Park reservations.
In order to make your reservations, you will need a My Disney Experienceaccount and valid annual pass linked to it. If you’re staying at a Disney Resorthotel, be sure to link your Resort reservation to your My Disney Experienceaccount as well. Simply log into your My Disney Experience account and check for the date and Theme Park you wish to visit. To enter a Theme Park, both a reservation and valid ticket or annual pass for admission to the same Park on the same date are required, and you must make a separate reservation for each date you plan to visit. Please note that reservations are limited in capacity, subject to availability and are not guaranteed until confirmed. Click here for more information. All Annual Passholders are eligible to make Theme Park reservations for up to three days at a time, or Annual Passholders staying at select Disney Resort or other select hotels with valid Theme Park admission are eligible to make Theme Park reservations for their entire Resort length of stay.
Please remember to check the Disney Park Pass system (once available) from time to time as Theme Park reservation availability can change.
A PHASED REOPENING
As a reminder, Magic Kingdom® Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park are scheduled to reopen on July 11, followed by EPCOT® and Disney’s Hollywood Studios® on July 15.
Weekday Select, Theme Park Select, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus and Premier Passholders will have the opportunity to register for a special preview opportunity at Magic Kingdom® Park or Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park on July 9 or 10. Email invitations with registration details will be sent out soon. Reservations are required, limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
As the Walt Disney World Theme Parks prepare to reopen, we see a lot of Passholder enthusiasm to get back to the magic. We’re eager to see our cherished Passholders too! We also recognize that Theme Park reservations will change the way many of our Passholders prefer to enjoy their pass. With that in mind, we are offering alternative options to help you manage your pass. Click here for additional details. We’ll send more information in early July on how to select these options.
To thank you for your loyalty, we want to give you a sprinkle of pixie dust by mailing you an exclusive magnet later this summer (one per household).
We know your next visit will be different. But together, we can find new ways to enjoy magical moments and create memories to last a lifetime. Before you arrive, please check out some things to Know Before You Go.
