Part of the Park Pass reservation system is about to CHANGE, and it’s going to make your life a whole lot easier.
Disney World’s Park Pass reservation system was introduced following the pandemic-related closures, and Disney executives have sung its praises ever since (a.k.a. it doesn’t seem like this system will be going away any time soon). We’ve seen some changes made to the system, and soon some more changes will be on the way.
Ever buy a 1-day, 1-park ticket to Disney World and then totally forget to make your Park Pass reservation until it’s too late and the park you wanted to visit has filled up? Well, that problem might be a thing of the past soon thanks to upcoming changes.
Disney World has announced some MASSIVE changes recently, including park hopper price changes based on date, a change in the dining reservation cancelation policy, and price increases for annual passes. But, most importantly for this post, Disney has announced some critical changes when it comes to 1-day, 1-park tickets.
Starting December 8th, Disney will actually be utilizing a park-specific pricing structure for 1-day, 1-park tickets.
What does this mean? Well, starting December 8th, you’ll purchase a 1-day, 1-park ticket for a specific park (i.e. a 1-day, 1-park ticket for Magic Kingdom, as opposed to just a generic, non-park-specific 1-day, 1-park ticket).
When you purchase that 1-day ticket for a specific date and theme park, a Park Pass reservation will actually be AUTOMATICALLY made at the time of purchase, so that’ll be one less thing to worry about.
But, note that starting on December 8th (when this change is put in place), pricing will be a bit different when it comes to those 1-day, 1-park tickets. Instead of all parks being priced the same on any given day, prices for 1-day, 1-park tickets will vary depending on what park you want to visit, with Magic Kingdom reaching the highest ticket price levels.
Remember that this automatic Park Pass reservation will only apply for 1-day tickets for a specific date and theme park for now. If you’ll be buying any other kind of ticket type, you’ll still need to take the extra step and make that Park Pass reservation on your own.
A valid ticket AND Park Pass is required for park entry, so you’ll want to make those Park Passes quickly to ensure that you can visit the parks you want.
Stay tuned for more updates.
