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.

Holidays and school breaks increase the number of guests at Disney Parks. Park reservations fill up quickly for these times. Previously, the Disney Reservation Calendar allowed booking through the end of 2023. This has recently been extended through January 2024.

In June, we were shocked when Park Reservations was already filling up for the fall. At that time, Park Reservations were unavailable for both Theme Park ticket holders and Disney Resort guests starting Monday, October 10th through Friday, October 14th.

Although Park Reservations were unavailable, additional Park Reservations were added for these dates. This is no longer the case. When looking at the Park Reservation calendar for both guests with theme park tickets and those staying at Disney Resorts.

Magic Kingdom no longer offers Park Reservations on the following dates in October: 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 17th. Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the following dates are unavailable in October: 4th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th.

At this time, this only affects Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the Magic Kingdom. These parks tend to be among the first to be unavailable for Park Reservations. Both Disney’s Animal Kingdom and EPCOT offer Park Reservations for all October dates.

We recommend making your Park Reservations as soon as possible, especially around holiday times.

It is surprising that Park Pass Reservations are still available for EPCOT’s 40th Anniversary on October 1st. Annual Passholders can still make Park Reservations for all dates in October.
