Over the past few days, The Walt Disney Company has been making updates and announcements that could completely change guest experiences this year.
The biggest change has been the Disney Park Pass reservation system. The company recently optimized the platform to facilitate the booking process across all ticket options and announced new rules.
The modifications have already been implemented, as of August 24, and some are currently in the process. Most of these changes will benefit travelers and reduce stress, especially for those who want to plan their trips with anticipation and good organization.
Here we share more details about the new Disney Park Reservation process and also important breaking news for travelers interested in visiting Disney World or Disneyland in the coming days.
New Disney Park Pass Rules
Disney Park Passes will now migrate and integrate into the new reservation system. Customers who have already made a reservation do not need to switch to another platform or take any action, it will be processed automatically for users.
These are the main new rules implemented by Walt Disney World this week:
- Users can now edit bookings without having to cancel and re-book them. This new rule applies to meetings, party members and even parks. Of course, these changes are subject to availability.
- The changes apply to all ticket holders, annual pass holders and resort guests.
- All ticket types and reservations can now be booked together.
- of The limit of visitors per booking has been increased from 12 to 30 visitors.
Now, if new family members want to join the reservation or another person can’t make it, the reservation just needs to be updated. And larger family groups can now book all tickets together and guarantee a better large group experience.
To make a reservation, travelers should visit the Disney World theme park reservation availability page for the Orlando parks and the Disneyland reservation availability page for those who want to see the magical experience in California. Disney World is currently allowing reservations through early 2021 and Disneyland within 120 days ahead of time.
Other recent changes
The reservation system is not the only modification the company has made in recent days. There have also been some updates and benefits that travelers should know about as well.
There is one difference that might not be so great for extra-organized travelers. As reported by the news site Inside the Magic, on August 19, Disney World did as well changes to resort hotel reservations.
Previously, it was possible to make a Disney Resort reservation up to 500 days in advance, but now the rules have changed to annual packages. The company has announced that guests can now make a reservation through December 2023, and future annual packages will be available in late spring.
Fortunately, more positive news has been released recently. Another interesting change for Disney World fans happens at the Magic Kingdom. The Disney Enchantment fireworks display has been updated as part of the 50th anniversary celebration and has a new entry with a tribute to Walt and Roy Disney.
Visitors who have recently seen the new show have shared positive comments I tweet and other social media channels. The two-minute display of beautiful fireworks exploding from the iconic castle now features a speech and a nostalgic look that has delighted many fans.
Disney wants to offer benefits and incentives to all kinds of fans, and in as many ways as possible. Now, Disney+ subscribers will also receive perks at the parks, especially on September 8. Disneyland, Disney World and Disneyland Paris will allow Disney+ users to enter the parks 30 minutes before opening. Those staying at the park’s resorts will be allowed to enter 60 minutes early. Want to feel like you have the park to yourself for at least a few minutes? Take advantage of this opportunity!
