Walt Disney World is reopening next month! With this reopening comes some changes. One of the main changes is guests now need to have a park pass reservation along with a valid park ticket in order to enter a theme park.
Making park pass reservations is now open to Disney Resort and other select hotel Guests with valid theme park admission. Annual Passholders without a Resort stay can make reservations beginning June 26. Existing ticket holders can make reservations beginning June 28.
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.
So, how do you make a park pass reservation? There are 4 main steps to the process:
Step 1: Link Your Admission to Your Disney Account.
If you don’t already have a Disney account, you’ll need to make one. Once you create an account, you’ll need to link your valid tickets. All Guests in your party must also have valid park admission linked to their profile. If you have a Disney Resort hotel reservation, be sure to link it to your Disney account as well.
Step 2: Create Your Party
When you begin to make a reservation, you’ll be prompted to create your party from your Family & Friends list. Simply select the family and friends you’d like to include, then select “Continue”. Don’t see someone in your travel party? Select “Add a Guest” to include them.
Note: You may need to make more than one Disney Park Pass reservation for your party depending on your admission type. Please make sure your party consists of Annual Passholders or theme park ticket holders. Staying in a Disney Resort or other select hotel with a package that includes tickets? Everyone in your party must also have a hotel reservation.
Step 3: Select a Date & Park
Choose the date and the theme park that you’d like to visit from the available reservations. Please note that dates and theme park selections are limited and subject to availability. After creating your party in the Disney Park Pass system, you’ll be prompted to:
- Select a Date: View a calendar and choose one of the available dates for your visit.
- Select a Theme Park: Park hours will be displayed for your convenience.
- Select a Time: This is the time that you can visit the park.
After selecting your date, park, and time, you can confirm your reservation.
Step 4: Review & Confirm Your Plans
Carefully review and confirm your selected park and date. If you need to make any changes, select “Back” to revise your selections. Before confirming, you’ll need to agree to the Terms & Conditions, including the COVID-19 liability waiver. Then, select “Confirm” to complete your park reservation. Once confirmed, your reservation will appear in My Plans.
Want to make another park reservation? Select “Make Another Reservation” to continue planning. As a reminder, if you have a multi-day ticket, you will be required to make a park reservation for each date of your visit.
Your new reservation(s) will appear in My Plans—both online and in the My Disney Experience app. If you need to cancel a reservation, view your daily itinerary in My Plans, then select “Reservation Details”.
