Disney to Release Additional Park Passes

If you have been following the Disney Park Passes Saga, you might be getting a little nervous about what will be left once your booking window opens. We have some good news for you today!

Disney Park Pass

Yesterday, as the Disney Park Pass System opened, Disney resort hotel guests felt the frustration of long waits. However, the effort paid off for many who were able to reserve park days for their stays all the way through September 2021.

As it stands, guests must have valid park tickets as well as a Park Pass reservation to enter a Disney World theme park. Capacity will be limited during the phased reopening, leaving guests concerned that they may not be able to reserve their desired days.

If you have not navigated the Park Pass waters as of yet, you will want to check out a Guide for using the system by clicking here. You might also want this useful guide of tips and tricks for making the system work for you that you can access if you click here.

Yesterday, bookings opened for guests with resort reservations. Guests were happy to discover that there is currently no limitation on how many days Annual Passholders with resort reservations can book.

Annual Passholders without resort reservations can begin booking on Friday, June 26, 2020. Guests with tickets and no resort reservations can begin booking June 28, 2020.

If you have tickets, but no resort reservations, you may have gotten nervous at the news that Hollywood studios has already reached its limit for select days. You might also be stalking the Park Pass calendar to make sure your days don’t book up.

Good News for Annual Passholders

If you are waiting for Friday to book your park days, we have some uplifting news for you. You might be able to reserve all of the park days you were hoping for!

According to reports on Twitter, Disney has confirmed that it will release additional Park Pass reservations on Friday, the day the system goes live for AP holders without resort reservations. Check out this set of Tweets from Scott Gustin:

There is still no word on whether Disney will release additional days for those guests who have tickets but no resort reservations once their booking windows open. However, we will keep you up to date on new information.

In the meantime, if you are an AP, it may serve you well to prioritize your Hollywood Studios Days when your booking window goes live! Hopefully you can snag the says you want.

We here at the KtP writing team hope that you reserve every single park you are after and that you don’t get too many pink castles while you wait to do so. May the Force be with you!

  1. Some problem for us. DVC resort booked, no tickets yet. I sent a chat and she didn’t have a confirmed date for new ticket sales.

  2. Any tips on getting through to a cast member on the phone? No luck over the last couple of days. I have a valid resort reservation and am able to get into the res system, however I am not able to reserve any park days.

    • My friend spent several hours on hold yesterday before getting assistance. They likely have a much smaller group answering phones than normal.

  3. I have the same scenario – December 2020 resort booked – no tickets purchased – are you correct in telling me on the 28th of June I can purchase park tickets for 2020? I have not been able to find this anywheres else….

  4. Everything I have read states that park tickets for 2021 can be purchased on June 28th. I have yet to find information on when ticket sales will re-open for those of us who have booked rooms for 2020 (the rest of THIS year), PRE-COVID19, but don’t have tickets yet. Are you saying that 2020 ticket sales will be available on June 28th? I find it odd that Disney would abandon those who already have room reservations.

  5. I am one of those type of people concerned about safety and making sure distance is able to be maintain and that since we do not have FP+ we will be able to ride the rides without long lines. Are these additional guests in the original plan or are upping the amount of people into the park? Just trying to keep safe!

  6. On June 28, guests with existing tickets can make park reservations. Disney tickets will not be made available on June 28, Disney stated “Later this summer, we will resume sales of 2020 tickets and Disney Resort hotel arrivals, based on availability of park reservations, while we continue to provide guests with existing tickets and Annual Passholders the opportunity to make park reservations for 2020 dates.”

  7. I rented points and have reservations for 6 nights in November this year. This was February of this year. Was planning to buy tickets this summer and now I can’t but tickets or make my park reservations. If I cancel I’m out because I rented points. I may not be able to but tickets or get in any park if I go. I’m sure I’m not the only one but this has not been addressed.

  8. Husband and I are both AP and we have 2 on sight resort rooms for 9 nights for June 2021 but my children and grandchildren dont have tickets yet. I called last weekend and was told on june 28th , I could get tickets for them in order to get a park reservation for one YEAR from now!! Why would anyone spend 2700.00 on tickets one year in advance? Surely park capacity will be greater than 25% by then?
    We are purchasing a house 5 min from WDW next May but feel as though we must keep resort reservations in order to get park reservations.
    KTP, you didnt mention a scenario in which you dont have tickets.

    • If you don’t have tickets, you can’t get a Park Pass. Tickets will go on sale again at some point this summer
