My Disney Experience Update Surfaces More Disney Park Pass Reservation Information

    A new update to the My Disney Experience app now surfaces more Disney Park Pass reservation information. Under the “My Day” tab, guests can now see which theme park they have reserved for that day. Previously, My Disney Experience would tell you that you have a Park Pass reservation, but not for which theme park. In the screenshot below, you can see the before and after of the change.

    Interestingly, the change comes as the Disney Park Pass reservations system is being phased out for many guests. Here’s a look at the upcoming changes:

    Visiting After January 9, 2024

    Starting with visits on January 9, 2024, theme park reservations will no longer be required for date-based tickets. A date-based ticket requires you to choose a start date when you purchase.

    For other admission types, theme park reservations may be required.

    No Theme Park Reservation Required

    • Date-based 1-day ticket
    • Date-based multi-day ticket
    • Vacation package with date-based tickets

    Theme Park Reservation Required

    • Student group tickets
    • Sport and Convention ticket
    • Disney Military Salute Ticket
    • Annual Pass
    • All other ticket types not mentioned above

    Annual Passholders

    To enter a theme park, each Passholder must have a theme park reservation and valid admission. Theme park reservations are limited and are subject to availability and applicable pass blockout dates.

    • Passholders can hold the following number of theme park reservations at a time (varies by pass) on a rolling basis:
      • Disney Incredi-Pass: up to 5
      • Disney Sorcerer Pass: up to 5
      • Disney Pirate Pass: up to 4
      • Disney Pixie Dust Pass: up to 3
    • Annual Passholders staying at Disney Resort hotels or other select hotels are eligible to make theme park reservations for each day of their Resort stay(s). This is in addition to holding their maximum number of theme park reservations at a time on a rolling basis.

    Beginning January 9, 2024, Guests with a ticket with Park Hopper benefits or an Annual Pass will be able to visit another theme park at any time of day during park hours (subject to capacity limitations). On days when theme park reservations are required for Annual Passholders, Passholders will be able to take advantage of updates to Park Hopper access after visiting their first park.

    Annual Passholders may visit the theme parks after 2:00 PM without a theme park reservation, except on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom park. Applicable pass blockout dates apply. Annual Passes are subject to the Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass Terms and Conditions and are subject to change without notice.

    “Good-to-go days” for Passholders will begin sometime in January, which means the theme park reservation calendar will be updated periodically to show Passholders select days when they may visit a Disney World theme park without needing a theme park reservation. Pass blockout dates will continue to apply.
