In anticipation of a very busy holiday season, many dates and park passes are now completely unavailable for Disney World. See which dates you will not be able to purchase tickets or make park passes. There is also an official statement from Disney.

Busy Holiday Season

As we celebrate a time of thanks, many are heading to Disney World to enjoy some theme park fun this week. With many schools off for Thursday and Friday (some even on Wednesday), this week provides a wonderful opportunity for families to have several vacation days to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Additionally, the crowds will really pick up as we get closer to Christmas. The week between Christmas and New Year is arguably the most crowded Disney will be all year.

If you take a look at Character Locator, you know these weeks are not the most ideal time to visit Disney. This is no secret. Holiday breaks are always more crowded than traditional weeks.

By the way, Kenny has color-coded best/worst days and parks for every day of the year! Not only that, but if you are forced to visit Disney during a busy time, he has great touring strategies to help you beat the crowds.

We have already seen a bit of how these crowds are affecting wait times for attractions. Take a look at what we found HERE.

Disney also recently paused sales for NEW Annual Passes. With the busy holiday season approaching and park pass availability limited, many Guests will not be able to visit the parks.

Disney is choosing to pause sales on select passes in order manage attendance. KatieP has the full details HERE.

As always, we remain very focused on providing a great Guest experience. As we continue to manage attendance using our theme park reservation system, certain tickets may be unavailable to purchase on select future dates, including upcoming holiday periods, based on reservation availability.

Additionally, while our Disney Pixie Dust Pass remains available for Florida residents, we have paused new sales of our Disney Incredi-Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass and Disney Pirate Pass.

Guests may check disneyworld.com/pass for the latest updates on the Passholder program.

  1. I find it interesting too…that Covid is now an excuse for every understaffed or closed venue, no housekeeping, etc. It is baloney – especially when Universal is successfully doing parades every day, streetmosphere characters, and daily housekeeping. Luckily Disney made my AP decision for me, and I bought my first ever Universal AP this past Monday. People do not necessarily feel entitled to much even if they spend a lot, but a dang parking lot tram, open restaurants with adequate staff, and an actual parade would be nice.

  2. I find it very interesting that so many people who have never worked a single day in any sector of the Disney organization seem to think that they know how to make all the “right” decisions lol…after an unforeseen global pandemic at that. Hobbies, people. Please.

  3. Chapek is just a greedy money hungry individual and let’s not forget the Board of Directors in addition. It’s such a travesty that Disney is now a regular US corporation that only thinks about money and how to squeeze another buck out of the “guests”

  4. This is beginning to look like poor management from top down…. Still no complimentary transportation from parking? There should be 1/2 price parking. Walt would be flippin.

  5. This is not what Mr. Walt Disney had in mind. It’s now more about the money I stead of the happiness of the customers. We were annual florida pass holder for over a decade! We seen things going down hill for years. The new management is not really working it right. I also know the covid didn’t help much either but it was going bad before the pandemic.

  6. They do not have enough staff to handle the crowds now let alone if more people come as in previous years. Genie + is not running smoothly and with even more crowds epic disaster would be in the works
