Disney's Magic Kingdom

Disney is Opening with a new Park Pass Reservation System!

Walt Disney World® Resort will begin a phased reopening beginning on July 11th with Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom followed by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15th.

Attendance will be limited and will be managed using a new Disney Park Pass System. All guests with valid admission will be required to make a reservation in advance for each park entry.

To enter a park, you must have a park reservation AND valid admission for the same park on the same date for each party in your party ages 3 and up. You will be limited to one park per day as park hopping will not be available during the initial reopening.

When Can You Make a Park Reservation?

The Disney Park Pass System will be soon be available to select guests.

  •  Beginning June 22, 2020 – Disney Resort and other select hotel Guests with valid theme park admission can make reservations.
  • Beginning June 26, 2020 – Annual Passholders without a Resort stay can make reservations.
  • Beginning June 28, 2020 – existing ticket holders can make reservations.
Park reservations will be available through September 26, 2021. For vacation packages, your ticket eligibility is tied to your package travel dates. If you want a park reservation for a different date, you must modify your package dates.

Want to Book a New Vacation?

If you booked a room only reservation for 2021, beginning on June 24, 2020 you can upgrade to a vacation package with theme park tickets and make your theme park reservations.

By June 28, all guests will be able to purchase a new Disney Resort hotel package and theme park tickets and make their park reservations for arrivals starting in 2021. Guests will be able to view park reservation availability online prior to purchasing tickets.

Later this summer, 2020 tickets and Disney Resort hotel arrivals will resume, based on availability of park reservations.

How Will it Work?

Step 1: Link your Admission to your Disney Account

  •  You’ll need a Disney account. Create an account or sign in to your existing account.
  • Then link your valid admission to your Disney Account. All guests in your party must also have valid park admission linked to their profile.
  • If you have a Disney Resort hotel reservation, make sure to link it into your Disney account as well.
Once your admission is linked to your account, you can begin to make a park reservation.

Step 2: Create Your Party

When you begin your reservation, you will be prompted to create your party from your Family & Friends list.

Select the family and friends you’d like to include, then select “Continue”.

If you need to add someone select “Add a Guest” to include them.

If you have a mix of ticket holders such as some annual passholders and theme park ticket holders, you may need to make more than one Disney Park Pass reservation for each ticket type.

If you are 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 and Park

Choose the date and the theme park that you’d like to visit from the available reservations.

After creating your party in the Disney Park Pass System, you will be asked to:

  •  Select a Date: View a calendar and choose one of the available dates
  • 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.
We were able to clarify that the times are just the park open hours for that date. You are able to show up any time during the park opening hours that day. You do not have to choose a specific arrival time.

Step 4: Review and 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.

If you want to make another park reservation, select “Make Another Reservation” to continue planning. 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”.
