Park Reservations

Guests will need both a valid ticket and a park reservation to be present for the opening day of this attraction. 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.

In the past, limited Park Reservations mainly affected guests with park tickets and those staying at Disney Resorts. Now a new group of guests is unable to make a Park Reservation.

Disney confirmed the beloved fireworks show will return on April 3, 2023The show will feature brand new projections down Main Street, U.S.A. You can check out the showtimes for Happily Ever After HERE and view the first images of these brand-new projections HERE.

Currently, there are no Park Reservations available on April 3, 2023, for Walt Disney World Annual Passholders. This is probably mainly due to the return of Happily Ever After on this date.

Now there are more dates that no longer offer Park Reservations for Annual Passholders. For several weeks, April 4, 2023, has been unavailable for Annual Passholders. This is the official opening day for TRON at the Magic Kingdom.

Earlier this morning we shared that TRON will offer limited soft openings starting on March 20th. This date is now completely sold out for Passholders. Be sure to check out the full dates for this soft opening HERE and make your Park Reservations now before they are unavailable.

Currently, March 20th, April 3rd, and April 4th are unavailable for Annual Passholders to visit the Magic Kingdom.

These dates are still available for guests with Park Tickets and Resort Guests. If you hope to visit within these dates, be sure to make your Park Reservations now.

Every time Disney artificially blocks passholders from making a park reservation, I cut $300 from my Disney budget (and it comes out of our budget for cruises, hotels, movies, etc.). There are plenty of great alternative sources of entertainment that are more than happy to have our money.

The park reservations need to go....along with genie+. Probably not going to happen, though. Disney has made having an enjoyable time while there much harder to do and much more expensive. Disappointing.
