We have a new rumor about the upcoming theme park reservation system that Disney is expected to roll out soon. It’s important to note that this is just a rumor at this time, and Disney hasn’t confirmed any details about the theme park reservation system yet.
According to an email being sent out by Virgin Holidays (h/t: @disney_images) to guests who purchased a Walt Disney World vacation through them, the new theme park reservation system will limit guests to just one theme park per day. Here is the relevant part of the email, emphasis added by BlogMickey.com:
A new park reservation system
When the parks reopen, park attendance will be managed through a new park reservation system.
To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date is required. Reservations need to be made via My Disney Experience in the coming weeks. You can request one park a day. As customers won’t need to hop between parks, the hopper service is currently suspended.
This reservation applies for all confirmed tickets through 2020, so reserve your parks as early as possible to help plan your itinerary.
At this point, it’s more likely that Virgin Holidays got out ahead of Disney with this announcement instead of simply making it up.
While it’s possible that Disney might not sell park hopper tickets when tickets go on sale again, it remains to be seen how Disney will handle Annual Passholders who didn’t have limitations like this before the theme parks closed. As of publish time, Disney has stated that they intend to collect monthly Annual Pass payments when the theme parks reopen.
As with any rumor we bring you, this should be treated as unofficial unless and until Disney confirms it.
As always, keep checking back with us here at BlogMickey.com for the latest Disney Parks news and photos. We’ll continue to bring you news and photos, where possible, through the Disney Parks closure due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will resume our normal coverage once the parks reopen to guests on July 11th!
