Disney launched its park reservation system at around 8 a.m. today. We’ve captured the screens that you’ll see in the process you’ll follow to make a Disney World park reservation.
In order to use Disney Park Pass System, you’ll need:
- A My Disney Experience account
- Valid theme park ticket or Annual Pass that’s linked to your My Disney Experience account
- For those with a Disney Resort hotel reservation, you will also need to be sure to link it to this My Disney Experience account beforehand
Here are the important dates to keep track of:
- June 22: Guests with Disney Resort Hotel reservations and valid theme park admission that is linked in My Disney Experience can start to make theme park reservations
- June 26: Disney Park Pass System will open for Annual Passholders
- June 28: Disney Park Pass System will open to existing ticket holders. In addition, by June 28, new Disney Resort hotel packages and theme park tickets will be on sale for arrivals in 2021.
- Later this summer: Based on availability, sales of 2020 tickets and Disney Resort hotel arrivals will resume.
Step 1: Select everyone in your party who’s going to that park on the same day
This step is similar to the old FastPass+ reservation screen that allows you to pick everyone in your group:
Step 2: Select the date and park for your visit
This step displays a month-by-month calendar. Choose a date from the calendar and the site will show which parks have reservations available for that date.
If a park isn’t available on the date you’ve selected, you’ll see this screen:
Step 3: Select the time of your visit
There’s only one option here, and that’s the park’s current operating hours. You don’t have to show up at park opening. I’m not sure why Disney has this step in the process, other than they thought (at some point, anyway) that there might be a need to stagger guests’ entry into the parks. So pick the one option available to you.
Step 4: Review and Confirm Your Reservation
You’re almost done – Disney’s lawyers want to make sure you’ve read the terms and conditions for entering the park. Click that checkbox, then click the green ‘Confirm’ button.
Step 5: Receive Confirmation
This completes one park reservation for one day.
If you have other days for which you’d like to visit a park, you’ll go through the entire process again for each park and day you want to visit.
