Planning a trip to Disney World?

Like many things in the world, Walt Disney World has made many changes to future visits including the way they handle ticket sales and discounts.

Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park will open back up on July 11th, followed by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15th. Read more about future visits here.

When it is time for you to visit the park, every guest must have both a valid Theme park ticket and a Theme Park Reservation for the same park on the same date, for each day they wish to visit the Disney Parks (required for each person in your party ages 3 and up and limit one park per day).

At this time, visiting more than one park per day will be temporarily unavailable. If you have a multi-day ticket, you will be required to make a park reservation for each date of your visit.

To create your reservation and link your book, be sure to set up your My Disney Experience account here. Plus, it is beneficial to have the My Disney Experience app on your mobile devices, with location services and notifications enabled.

At this time, new ticket sales are temporarily paused. Existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders will be able to make reservation requests before new tickets and annual passes are sold – details will be shared soon.

By June 28th, all guests will be able to purchase new Disney Resort hotel packages and theme park tickets and make their park reservations for arrivals starting in 2021. But do note that park reservations are limited in number and subject to availability.

Face masks will also be required for guests ages two and up in the parks and common areas of resort hotels. Upon arrival at Walt Disney World, you may undergo a temperature screening with no-touch thermometers as well.

Disney has also made the decision to no longer offer Dine Plans at the Walt Disney World Resort and they will be removing Dine Plans from existing guest bookings and will provide a refund for any paid and upgraded Dine Plan.

    So they are now selling anything for 2020 if I’m reading it correctly right? We had airfare booked for December 2020. Trying to see if we need to cancel it.

    Our agent told me that all they now had for us to choose from was the deluxe hotels. We canceled and got a refund. We are going to wait for the value hotels to open and for all to be normal again.

    “Disney has also made the decision to no longer offer Dine Plans at the Walt Disney World Resort and they will be removing Dine Plans from existing guest bookings and will provide a refund for any paid and upgraded Dine Plan.” Anyone know if this is temporary or are they never ever going to offer dining plans?! We loved our dining plan!!!!

    Will the Characters wear masks too? 🤪

      Technically they wouldn’t need to since most mask are no more protective than their costumes

    We went to Disney last year. I can’t imagine taking my kids to Disney with all these restrictions. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still quarantining for the most part and I understand why the park is doing this but I’d just cancel my trip with these restrictions. I love to park hop and am a big fan of dining plan. Also only having deluxe hotel options would be tough on the budget. If I had a season pass and lived close, I’d might go since you could make a day trip of it but to fly or drive for hours and pay that much money, I would rather wait. I am glad we went last year for sure!
