June and half of July have been completed booked for Disney World park reservations. But that’s changed overnight! Check out details here.

Summer 2020 wasn’t the busiest season at Disney World. However, now with pent-up demand, that’s changed. People are ready to get back into the world, and Disney World’s ready to accept more guests.

Why the Increased Reservations?

If you wanted a last minute Disney World trip, you’ve probably been discouraged like me (Susan). We really wanted to go a few days in June, but there were slim to zero park reservations available so we scrapped it.

It is evident that tourism has exploded since people are tired of being cooped up over the past year or so. With pent-up demand, Disney wants to capitalize on increased revenue by adding additional park passes.

Preparing for Increased Capacity

Recently, Disney World responded to Orange County lifting masks mandates . Also in preparation for increased crowds, Disney relaxed social distancing requirements. Disney also released new park hours for the entire summer.

Check out Annual Passholder availability for Disney World park passes. Before today, Annual Passholders had no chance of starting their day at Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios the majority of June. Now, this has changed! Annual Passholders can now visit most days the last half of June. If you’re thinking about going this month, jump on it now!

Now those without an Annual Pass can purchase theme park tickets and visit for the second half of June. This also gives people the flexibility to stay off-site during their visit.

If you’re wanting an impromptu trip, reservations are now available for guests staying at Disney’s Select Resorts. However, booking a Disney Resort may prove to be difficult at the last minute.

With the exception of July 4, Annual Passholders have the freedom to choose any park on any given day in July! This is so exciting for those of us waiting for things to re-open. In addition to more Disney World Resorts opening this summer, I’m (Susan) really hoping more experiences and dining places will re-open this summer to handle the increased crowds.

  1. With all this increased capacity, I think fast passes need to be brought back to offset what will be the really long waits. For the amount of money paid for a family or anyone for that matter, little kids are not going to wait in lines for minimum of an hour for each ride.
