Disney World is reopening this week, and that means that some guests are ready to plan their trips to the parks.
During the historic Disney World closure, new ticket sales and hotel reservations were indefinitely suspended so that Disney could accommodate guests with existing reservations. New vacation packages for 2021 opened first and last night, Disney announced that 2020 purchases would be available TODAY. It’s official! 2020 Disney World tickets and hotel reservations are available NOW!
Currently, the only ticket option available is Standard Theme Park admission. We tried to select the option to purchase a new Annual Pass and were directed to the Experience Update page. One thing to note — there is no Park Hopper add-on option for 2020 tickets (you CAN add Park Hopper in 2021!).
In fact, the only add-on option is for the Memory Maker service. As of now, you’ll have to wait until 2021 if you want tickets with Park Hopper, Park Hopper Plus, or the Water Park and Sports option. Keep in mind that you should take a look at Disney Park Pass availability prior to booking — even if you’re looking at a 2021 trip.
Resorts with availability for 2020 have been listed this morning too! One thing to note is that the hotels with unannounced reopenings do NOT have any 2020 OR 2021 availability at this time.
We didn’t encounter any website issues this morning, but Disney did mention the use of virtual waiting rooms and rolling release times so let us know if you have any trouble! Stay tuned to DFB in the coming week for all the HUGE reopening updates.
