Earlier today Walt Disney World revealed their proposal to reopen the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11th and EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15th. As part of the guidelines and procedures that Walt Disney World is putting into place they have stated that advanced reservations will be required to enter the parks.
On the Disney Parks Blog they posted more information about the advanced reservation process:
“Because theme park capacity will be significantly limited as we welcome guests back to the magic, we will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that will require all guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. At this time, we are temporarily pausing new ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel reservations so we can focus on guests with existing tickets and reservations (Disney Vacation Club members can still make new reservations). Existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders will be able to make reservation requests in phases before new tickets are sold; we’ll be reaching out to these guests soon to provide additional details. We will resume new ticket sales and hotel reservations after that period of time. Theme park reservations will be limited due to attendance limitations and will be subject to availability. More details about this new reservation system will be available soon.”
Walt Disney World is going to temporarily stop new bookings and ticket sales so they can make sure those that had previous tickets and reservations get priority for the reservations.
Those who have tickets or AP holders will be able to make reservations in phases before the new tickets are reopen to sales.
