As many of you may know, Disney is implementing a BRAND NEW reservation system for their grand reopening and up until this point, we had VERY few details on how the system would operate.
Now, Disney World has just released ALL the details on when this new system will go live and what guests will need to do in order to get a reservation.
Beginning June 22, Disney Resort guests and other select hotel guests with valid theme park admission can make reservations. On June 26th, Annual Passholders WITHOUT a resort stay can make reservations. Then on June 28, existing ticket holders can make reservations.
These theme park reservations will be available through September 26, 2021, and will be based on your resort stay and ticket eligibility or ticket eligibility window.
How Disney’s New Reservation System Works
Step 1: Link Your Admission to Your Disney Account
Step 2: Create Your Party from your Friends and Family list
Step 3: Select a Date and Park
Step 4: Review and Confirm Your Plans
Disney has shared a few specific details regarding reservations. For starters, “reservations are limited and subject to availability and are not guaranteed until a reservation is finalized.”
Disney also shared information about park hopping. When the parks reopen, guests will initially be able to select ONE park per day. Park hopping will be temporarily unavailable due to capacity limits.
A reservation MUST be made EACH day of entry. That means that even if you have a multi-day ticket, you will need to make a park reservation for each day you plan to visit the parks.
Disney highly recommends “that you make your park reservation as soon as you complete your ticket purchase, as availability can change until the reservation is finalized.”
Future Disney Vacation Details
According to Disney, “If you booked a vacation package, your ticket eligibility is tied to your package travel dates. To make a park reservation for a different date, be sure to modify your vacation package dates.”
Ticket Sales and Hotel Reservations
This will all be based on the availability of park reservations.
2021 Vacation Information
Now, for those of you who have a hotel stay at a Disney Resort or other select hotel in 2021, Disney has said to “please call the Disney Reservation Center or call your travel professional beginning on June 24 to upgrade to a vacation package with tickets—and then make your theme park reservations.”
Guests looking to book a 2021 vacation will be able to do so by June 28th.
Disney World will begin its phased reopening of its theme parks on July 11th and select hotels will reopen on June 22nd. We will be reporting on all the need-to-know details, so be sure to stay tuned.
