Walt Disney World is increasing the number of park reservations available to Annual Passholders.
This will not impact the park capacity, but Disney is shifting the amount of reservations available amongst Annual Passholders, resort guests and ticket holders.
This will take effect at Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. Hollywood Studios is not included.
Here is the memo Disney sent out to Passholders:
Dear Valued Passholder,
As the Walt Disney World Theme Parks reopen, we look forward to welcoming back our cherished Annual Passholders with a continued focus on delivering a magical experience. As we evolve this new system, we will be looking for ways to fine-tune and for opportunities to increase reservation availability for you.We are excited to share that starting Thursday, July 16, additional Disney Park Pass reservations will be offered to Annual Passholders for select dates in July and August at Magic Kingdom® Park, EPCOT® and Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. Please note that this additional Disney Park Pass reservation availability does not reflect an increase in Park attendance, which remains limited during this reopening period. Check here for the latest availability.
Also, Annual Passholders staying at select Disney Resort or other select hotels with valid Theme Park admission are eligible to make Theme Park reservations for each day of their resort stay(s), in addition to holding up to 3 days of Theme Park reservations at a time on a rolling basis. Once you use a Theme Park reservation, you can make another reservation for a future date.
Updates on options to manage your Premier pass
We recognize that Park reservations will change the way that many of our Passholders use their pass. With that in mind, in June, we shared that Annual Passholders will receive a one-month (30 days) extension to their pass. This additional month will automatically be processed and visible in their My Disney Experience account over the coming weeks. A further extension due to theme park closures at the Disneyland® Resort will be applied to your pass 6–8 weeks after Disneyland® Resort Theme Parks reopen. Please note that Disneyland® Resort will have different Park reservation rules and availability for its theme parks. More information about Disneyland® Resort theme park reservations will be shared at a later date.
If you prefer, you can cancel your pass and receive any applicable refund in lieu of the additional month. Now through August 11, 2020, call V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at 407-939-7277 to cancel your pass or for assistance on any individual concerns. We anticipate heavy call volume and appreciate your patience as we answer all inquiries.
We hope these latest updates help to make your experience a magical one.
Reservations will be reallocated July 16th.
