Park Reservations Needed

Since the phased reopening of the theme parks, park reservations have been required for all four theme parks. Although Disney makes more park passes available at times, it’s a good idea to secure them as soon as you book your vacation. This is especially important during busier times of the year.

Also, keep in mind you can’t park hop until 2:00pm. More information regarding the Park Reservation System can be found HERE.

Since no one can enter the park without a reservation, it’s important to make sure you follow all the steps. Before you can actually make reservations, make sure you’re familiar with where to find them and make sure everything is linked. To get started, follow these steps:

  • Make sure your My Disney Experience account is up-to-date since this is where your Walt Disney World Resort plans are stored and managed.
  • Link your valid theme park ticket or Annual Pass your My Disney Experience account. 
  • Link your Disney Resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account before your visit.

I think they're trying to get crowd size numbers ahead of time so that they can feed it into Genie.

I thought Disney no longer had reduced park attendance. It sure looked that way when we were there the week of Thanksgiving! If park passes were put into place because of reduced park numbers and the parks are no longer using reduced capacity then why are park passes needed?

Already booked a trip for Sept 2022, and park reservations ate in place. We booked back in Oct. 2021.
