Even though cases of corona virus are spiking in Florida, Walt Disney World in Orlando is set to re-open in July, but travelers won’t be able to just pick up and head to the park. Instead, in addition to tickets, they’ll need a reservation to get in. They just announced their new Disney Park Pass System in Orlando. Because of space limitations, park hopping is not allowed, and guests can only make a reservation for one park per day. Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom are set to open July 11th, while Epcot and Hollywood Studios will open July 15th.
The system will be available on the Disney website, and folks will have to register through a My Disney Experience account. Anyone with a multi-day ticket will have to make a reservation for a park, and tickets between family and friends will be able to be linked so they can get reservations on the same day.
Guests will only be allowed to select one park per day. Disney notes that they “hope to bring back the ability to visit more than one park per day soon.” Those who paid extra for park-hopping ability will receive a reimbursement.
The reservation system isn’t up and running yet, but it is expected to launch before the July 11th opening of the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom.
