Just as soon as you get used to something, Disney changes it! There are new changes for park passes at Disney World.
I could probably go into a lengthy recap of the park pass system, but you guys know the drill by now. Park passes are required along with the valid theme park admission to enter Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom on any given day.
This system started as a way for Disney to manage park capacity when the parks reopened. They have since evolved into a permanent fixture of the Disney World experience.
Now, there are new changes as Disney seeks to streamline the process. Beginning August 23, there are a few key changes that you will notice with the park pass system.
Disney is implementing several new changes that should streamline the process for you and make it a bit easier to make and modify park passes.
First, you can now book park passes across all ticket types. Previously, park passes for Annual Passholders, single day tickets, and resort-linked tickets all had to be booked separately. This was very inconvenient for parties that had a mixture of ticket types!
Second, the limit of tickets that can reserve park passes will increase to 30 (previously 12). This is great news for larger groups!
Third, you will not need to cancel your park pass and then book a new one if you wish to modify your travel plans. This is huge! Now you can change the date and park on the reservation without needing to cancel and rebook.
Overall, these are all positive changes which is a good thing considering Disney has stated several times that park passes are here to stay.
