By MIX 105.1

Anyone and everyone in Florida and other states have been literally on the edge of their seats, waiting for Walt Disney World to open back up. 

As an annual passholder for 7+ years, I have been waiting to see the in's and out's of how Disney will be handling the reopening, amid the pandemic. Besides, it really is where I try spend the majority of my time, the happiest place on earth.

I recently found some news on DisneyWorld , about some rules that would be in play once things start opening back up at the house of Mouse. 

First thing in place will be the Disney Park Pass system. This system will allow guests to make a reservation for the date that is available on the calendar, for whichever park they are trying to access. Each guest will be able to hold 2 reservations at a time. The priority of attendance will go as follows:

  • Beginning June 22, 2020, Disney Resort and other select hotel Guests with valid theme park admission can make reservations.
  • Beginning June 26, 2020, Annual Passholders without a Resort stay can make reservations.
  • Beginning June 28, 2020, existing ticket holders can make reservations.

Park reservations will be available through September 26, 2021, based on your Resort stay and ticket eligibility or ticket eligibility window. Furthermore, new tickets for admission will not be sold until the end of summer 2020.

Reservations will be limited and will also go by availability. There won't be any gaurantee until a reservation is final. Friends and family will still be able to link their tickets together to ensure entry for the same dates if applicable.

Guests will be able ot select one park per day, so that means no park hopping! It is only temporary based on attendance limitations. The site also states that, "A park reservation must be made for each day of entry. If you have a multi-day ticket, you will be required to make a park reservation for each date of your visit."

-Annual Passholders-

Disney will be reaching out this week, to existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders, to let them know when they will be able to make reservations. The Park Pass system will be opening in phases. Pass blockout dates apply and you should check the applicable blockout calendar for your pass type prior to making your Theme Park reservations.
