We can’t wait for all of the exciting seasonal offerings coming to Disney World, like EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays and Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours parties! With so much festive fun to look forward to, we decided to check in on the park pass availability for the holiday season. Are there any park passes left? Let’s take a look!
If you’re an Annual Passholder looking to go to Walt Disney World in the next few weeks, your options are looking a little more wide open!
Since the parks reopened in July, Disney World has implemented a Park Pass Reservation System, where you have to make a reservation at one of Disney World’s four theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom — before you can enter.
We just learned that Disney World has opened up reservations through their big 50th-anniversary date in October, 2021 through the end of that year!
With the ability to book reservations and buy tickets through this time comes another necessity in reopened Disney World: Park Passes. And it looks like these are now bookable all the way into early 2022!
Labor Day Weekend has been a pretty telling time in Disney World since it’s the first official holiday back in the parks!
While Disney Park Pass availability sold out for Saturday and Sunday this weekend, the parks have looked a little more normal than we expected them to be. However, Disney has already started putting spooky entertainment, treats, and merchandise in place for the Halloween season that guests from all realms are going to want to see.
Walt Disney World guests are required to make a Park Pass reservation before entering any of the theme parks.
The reservations are subject to availability and tend to run out quickly for Annual Passholders. This is especially true for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The theme park recently opened the incredibly popular new land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the brand new attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. This has been a huge draw for general theme park guests and Annual Passholders alike.
We have some good news for Disney World Annual Passholders interested in heading to the parks soon!
Since the parks have reopened, we’ve regularly seen the Disney Park Pass reservations for Annual Passholders get snatched up pretty quickly. But occasionally, Disney will release additional availability for Passholders.
Getting into the Disney Parks is a little bit more complicated than it used to be.
Now, guests need BOTH valid park admission and a Disney Park Pass theme park reservation. For Annual Passholders, that can be tricky as Disney Park Passes set aside for Passholders seem to go VERY quickly compared to the other admission categories. To help alleviate this, Disney has just added MORE Disney Park Pass availability for Annual Passholders in August!
Disney World can be a pretty happenin’ place around the holidays.
The day of Halloween is typically a pretty busy time to be in Disney World. All of the parks — especially Magic Kingdom — can get seriously packed. Now, with the Disney Park Pass limiting attendance in the parks, is this crowded day booking up already!? For Annual Passholders, the answer as of right now is yes.
