Today’s another special day in the Magic Kingdom as the Cadaver Dans return to Main Street to sing some spooky tunes, along with all the other Halloween entertainment happening in the parks!
Disney has been creating new ways to celebrate the holidays, rolling out themed Character Cavalcades and allowing guests of all ages to wear their Halloween best (even the Cast Members). But, that doesn’t mean that the parks have curtailed their health and safety measures. Along with the health and safety notice signs placed throughout the park, Disney has also recently updated the overhead announcements to confirm lesser-followed required procedures in Disney World like wearing your mask over your nose and not lowering your mask for photos.
And although the parks have extended their hours through November and December, Disney World is still operating with limited capacity. Guests are required to book a reservation through the Disney Park Pass system to visit the parks on their desired date. However, the reservation slots go pretty quickly with days completely selling out sometimes.
As we made our way into the Magic Kingdom this morning, we noticed that a new sign had joined the health and safety notices at the entrance! While the statements about the need to wear a face covering, distancing, temperature screenings, and more details were still available for guests to read, a new sign about Disney’s park pass reservations was also located in front of the park.
The sign provided information that guests must have both a theme park reservation and a valid ticket or pass to enter their desired park for the day. However, the sign also makes guests aware that there are no more Disney Park Passes available to enter any of the parks that specific day.
This is helpful for guests who don’t have a ticket yet, basically letting them know there’s no reason to purchase one for today. BUT — always check the availability calendar online before trusting this signage. At press time, checking the calendar, we saw that EPCOT still had availability today for regular ticket holders and resort guests. So cancellations are always happening and you may be able to snag a park pass at the last minute. Or perhaps Disney is putting out this sign knowing that EPCOT availability will sell out today at some point.
Even though we haven’t seen this sign before, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it pop up in the other parks on the days that Disney has reached its reservation limit. As Disney World continues to provide more information about the parks’ operations during this time, we’ll make sure to let you know everything before you head back soon!
And, as always, we’re here to help find the answers to any questions you may have about your upcoming trip to Disney World!
