For those who were waiting anxiously to be able to book 2020 Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stays or Walt Disney World tickets for the theme parks for the remainder of the year, today is the day!
Guests are now able to purchase new tickets and plan future visits throughout this year and 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 their tickets to make theme park reservations. Reservations will be limited and are subject to availability.
Also, keep in mind that 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.)
If you are looking to book your tickets or room reservations, note that things will likely be busy, 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. So if what you are wanting isn’t available right first thing, it may still become available later. In addition, virtual waiting rooms will be utilized as needed to manage the high volume of Guests looking to plan their visits.
2020 ticket sales and resort room bookings were paused earlier this year 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 would be able to take advantage of their tickets first, in this time of physical distancing, 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.
