Walt Disney World’s park reservation system has been updated to include dates through January 2023. The park pass calendar extension came as Disney released ticket and package information for 2022.
The Disney Park Pass system requires guests to make a reservation for the theme park they want to visit first each day. Pools of reservations are held for different groups, including annual passholders, resort guests and normal ticketed guests. Disney has used this system since reopening in order to control capacity and maintain physical distancing.
The extension of the park reservation system shouldn’t negatively impact too many guests. Reservations have only been “sold out” on the busiest days, but haven’t seen too many issues after Walt Disney World increased its overall capacity.
Previously, guests already had to know which park they wanted to visit each day due to their FastPass+ reservations. Now, that same idea holds, but guests need to know where they plan to go first each morning. Then, assuming they have a park hopper ticket, they can visit a different theme park after 2pm.
As always, Disney may change their reservation system and their park hopping plans at anytime. It’s possible they’ll modify or remove the system depending how things look next year.
