You are now required to have a Disney Park Pass Reservation to enter any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. This changed when the Parks reopened in July, 2020, after a four month closure. Some people worry about making reservations, but there is no need to, it’s easy to do.
If you don’t have a My Disney Experience Account, you will need to create one before you can proceed. It’s free, and you can sign up online.
Before you can make a Disney Park Pass Reservation, you need to have a Theme Park ticket or tickets. Add everyone that you want to make reservations for to your Friends and Family List, and then you’ll be able to make them for everyone at one time.
If your trip to Walt Disney World is at a busy time of year, it’s a good idea to check the Availability Calendar before you buy your tickets. You don’t want to end up with tickets that you will not be able to use. There is a separate calendar for Annual Passholders.
After you have tickets, the next step is to make your reservations. You’ll need to choose between Theme Park Tickets or Annual Passes. Next, you will choose who on your Friends & Family List you want to make the reservations for. Pick a day, scroll to the bottom, agree to the COVID waiver, and then you’re all set!
You should receive an email to let you know that you made the reservation. There is usually another email reminder a day or two before you are supposed to visit.
If you change your plans, don’t forget to cancel your reservation. You will need to do it online, you can’t do it through the My Disney Experience App. Annual Passholders can also modify Disney Park Pass Reservations online.
Disney Park Pass Reservations are most likely here to stay. The current Availability Calendar extends into January, 2024, which (at this time) is how far out you can book vacations.
