Ever since the news that the Walt Disney World Resort was getting ready to open up in July and there would be a reservation system in place to get into the parks, guests have been wondering just exactly how that would work.
Now, Disney has laid out the details of what to expect of the new reservation system.
Here’s the first few steps of what you’ll need in order to make a reservation:
- You’ll need a My Disney Experience account, as this is where your Walt Disney World Resort plans are stored and managed.
- You’ll also need a valid theme park ticket or Annual Pass that’s linked to your My Disney Experience account.
- If you have a Disney Resort hotel reservation, be sure to link it to your My Disney Experience account beforehand, as well.
Once you’ve logged into My Disney Experience, a calendar will appear with available reservation dates for each theme park.
You can link your tickets with your family and friends to attend the same park and get the reservation.
Disney is also announcing that they’re only allowing guests to go to one theme park per day – no park hopping.
“Guests with existing tickets that include the Park Hopper Option or Park Hopper Plus Option have options available to them for ticket modifications and cancellations, and can visit DisneyWorld.com/Updates for more information.”
Here’s more from Disney on their annual passholders and those who hold existing ticket reservations:
For Existing Ticket Holders and Annual Passholders: Beginning this week, we will reach out to existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders with more information on when they will be able to check availability to make their park reservations.
We will open the Disney Park Pass system to these guests in phases, beginning with those with future Disney Resort and other select hotel stays.
Later this summer, we will resume sales of 2020 tickets and Disney Resort hotel arrivals, based on availability of park reservations, while we continue to provide guests with existing tickets and Annual Passholders the opportunity to make park reservations for 2020 dates.
