One tool that the Walt Disney World Resort introduced in 2020 was the Disney Park Pass Reservation System. The Disney Park Pass Reservation System requires that all Guests with either a ticket or Annual Pass, make a reservation in advance for each day’s theme park entry.
Thanks to the release of 2022 Walt Disney World Vacation Packages, we learned that it appears that for the time being, the Disney Park Pass system is here to stay, at least through early 2023. Guests can currently make reservations all the way into the first few weeks of January.
How to Use the Disney Park Pass System
In order to use Disney Park Pass System, Guests will need to make sure they have a My Disney Experience account. Those with a resort hotel reservation will need to link that reservation to your My Disney Experience account. For those who’ve purchased tickets or have an Annual Pass, those will also need to be linked to your My Disney Experience account.
Once all that has been done and you are logged into your My Disney Experience account, you’ll be granted access to a calendar. This calendar will share with Guests any available reservation dates for each theme park. The ability to make these reservations can be found here. If you have purchased a multi-day ticket, you will need to schedule a park reservation for each date. What if you are traveling with family and friends? You can link their tickets together with yours. Then you can make theme park reservations for all members of your traveling party.
Park reservations are limited and subject to availability. Currently, the Walt Disney World Resort is limiting attendance, controlling guest capacity. This is being done to align with guidance from health and government authorities on physical distancing.
If you have purchased the Park Hopper option, you will still need to make a theme park reservation. Guests will select the first park that they wish to visit. Then, after 2:00 p.m., you can hop to any park that is currently not closed to capacity. More details about Park Hopping can be found here.
