A new reservation system is coming to Walt Disney World when the parks reopen in July, the resort announced Friday.
The new Disney Park Pass system will allow guests with a ticket or annual pass to make a reservation in advance for each park. A reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same day are required for each person ages 3 and up, the resort announced.
Beginning Monday, Disney Resort and other select hotel guests who already have a valid park admission can make reservations. Annual pass holders can begin making reservations June 26, and existing ticket holders can make reservations beginning June 28.
Park reservations can be made through Sept. 26, 2021, based on each guest’s resort ticket eligibility or ticket eligibility window, the resort stated.
The tool will be available at DisneyWorld.com.
Reservations will be made using a My Disney Experience account with a valid theme park ticket or annual pass linked to it. Hotel reservations should also be linked to it beforehand.
Ticket sales for the remainder of 2020 as well Disney Resort hotel arrival will resume later this summer. By June 28, all guests will be able to purchase new Disney Resort hotel packages and theme park ticket, and make park reservations, to come to Disney in 2021.
For now, guests will only be allowed to select one park per day. Disney said they hope to bring back the multi-park tickets in 2021.
In addition, the resort stated it will implement temperature checks at the gate. Anyone in a party who has a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will not be admitted along with the rest of their party.
All guests older than the age of 2 will be required to wear a face covering at all times except when dining or swimming. The resort is encouraging guests to bring their own masks.
Cast members will also have to wear a mask.
The parks will operate under reduced capacity, and social distancing will be enforced. There will also be enhanced cleaning procedures throughout as well as hand sanitizing stations.
Disney previously announced that the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom reopen July 11, and EPCOT and Hollywood Studios reopen July 15.
On Thursday, the park canceled its annual Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom while also extending and modifying the Food & Wine Festival at EPCOT.
