Disney World announced yesterday that they are planning to reopen July 11th beginning with Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They then plan to reopen Epcot on Hollywood Studios beginning July 15th.
When Disney announced their proposed reopening date, they also mentioned that they would be rolling out a brand NEW reservation system and that in order to accommodate guests with existing reservations, new hotel reservations and tickets would not be available at this time. Now, Disney has shared some more information regarding this new reservation system.
“When our theme parks reopen, we will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system on DisneyWorld.com that will require all guests to make a reservation in advance for theme park entry. Over the coming weeks, we will be making some necessary updates to prepare for the launch of this park reservation system,” Disney stated.
Disney also shared, “Guests with existing Resort reservations will have priority access to the new park reservation system when it becomes available. Additionally, when reservations for dining and other experiences resume, Guests who had existing reservations will receive priority access to rebook. Keep in mind, for dining locations within our parks, Guests will need a park reservation and valid admission before they can rebook dining and experiences.”
This is just one of many bits of information that Disney has released regarding the parks reopening. They are also suspending FastPass+ and canceling the Disney Dining Plan and existing dining reservations.
We will continue to keep you updated as Disney released more information regarding this new reservation system.
