The long awaited day has arrived! After waiting for months, the Walt Disney World Resort will once again make 2020 tickets and resort hotel bookings available beginning tomorrow. Guests will soon be able to purchase new tickets and plan future visits throughout this year with the Disney Park Pass system, which is being used to help manage attendance during this reopening period.
Do keep in mind that things will likely be busy tomorrow, if the last few releases have been any indication. For those looking to make their plans right away, please note that tickets and Disney Resort hotel bookings may be released at different times throughout the day tomorrow. In addition, virtual waiting rooms will be utilized as needed to manage the high volume of Guests looking to plan their visits.
All Guests with valid admission will be required to make a reservation in advance for each park entry. Guests will need to check the park reservation availability calendar before purchasing any new tickets and then go directly to the Disney Park Pass System after purchasing tickets to make your theme park reservations. Keep in mind that reservations will be limited and subject to availability.
Also, during this phased reopening, some tickets, ticket options and Disney Resort hotels will be unavailable, but there are still a variety of options to choose from. (For example, right now, the Park Hopper option is unavailable for purchase.)
2020 ticket sales and resort room bookings were paused so that the Walt Disney World Resort could focus on making sure that Guests who had already purchased tickets and those who are Annual Passholders, during these times of physical distancing, would be able to be properly managed first, before selling tickets and hotel rooms to additional Guests.
The Walt Disney World Resort officially opens for all Guests beginning on July 11 at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom and July 15 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.
