After a year of being closed, we finally have a date that Disneyland theme parks are expected to reopen. Now, we’re working on fleshing out the details of what that reopening might look like and what YOU need to be able to get into the Disneyland parks.
The week of New Year’s Eve is generally a crowded week at Disney World. Despite the parks’ current capacity limits and limited entertainment options due to the global health crisis, that still could be the case this year.
And now that we’re looking at park pass availability for the week of New Year’s Eve in 2020, and it looks like at least one park, Hollywood Studios, is going to fill up quickly.
And now that we’re getting closer to the spooky season, we’re beginning to see the parks get busier and busier, especially on weekends. But what about Halloween, which just happens to fall on a Saturday this year?
We’re starting to see a bit of an uptick when it comes to crowds in Disney World.
Since the parks reopened in July, Disney has been implementing the new Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system to manage the limited capacity in the theme parks. It wasn’t until this month that we saw dates getting fully booked up, and now, this weekend is following suit!
Shanghai Disneyland was the first Disney resort to reopen from the global closures, and now it’s entering a new stage of reopening.
With all sorts of new health measures and safety features, Shanghai Disneyland has spent the last few months adapting to the new normal. We’ve seen the introduction of the new Standby Pass feature and even the return of fireworks. Now, in line with government restrictions, Shanghai Disneyland will be raising capacity and entering a new phase of reopening.
A LOT has changed in Disney World over the past few months, and we’re finally back in the parks to experience it.
One of the biggest changes has to do with HOW we get into the parks. A park ticket alone doesn’t cut it anymore. Instead, entry requires valid admission AND a Disney Park Pass reservation to help limit capacity. Which led us to wonder — what if we want a mid-day break? Can you LEAVE a reopened Disney Park and return the same day? We’ve got answers!
Just last Monday, Disney launched the all-new Disney Park Pass theme park reservations system to help manage capacity in the parks during the reopening.
The first round of the Disney Park Pass opened to guests with existing resort reservations on June 22nd with the second round opening up for Annual Passholders on June 26th. Now, Disney Park Passes are available for ALL guests with existing park tickets!
As Disney World resort guests with existing reservations became the first to access the Disney Park Pass system, there were apparently some serious glitches to deal with. Reports flooded in of lengthy wait times, inaccurate reservation limits, and falsely unavailable park days.
Let’s take a look at some of the glitches that guests encountered — and how to handle them for the next big Disney Park Pass day on June 26th (for Passholders without Resort reservations) or June 28th (for guests with just tickets).
In order to help manage attendance, Disney World is implementing a theme park reservation system upon reopening — which means that there’s a BRAND NEW element that guests will need to plan for their vacation!
These theme park reservations will be available through September 26, 2021, and all guests will need a reservation in order to enter. As with all new processes, there is likely to be a bit of a learning curve — and since we know how important Disney World vacation planning is, we’re here to help! Here are five mistakes you’ll want to avoid while making your theme park reservations!
Disney World’s new Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system launched this morning and (perhaps unsurprisingly) the website had some issues keeping up with demand. Eventually, though, the reservation system went live and resort guests rushed to get their reservations for opening day and beyond.
Now, after just a few hours of being available, Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park reservations are GONE for opening day and the two days after. As of now, you won’t be able to make Hollywood Studios reservations on July 15th, 16th, or 17th.
