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.
