Walt Disney World Resort will welcome its first guests back to the theme parks starting July 11 as Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park reopen. EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will reopen on July 15. Disney Cast Members continue to prepare for these openings in a measured and deliberate way while implementing health and safety measures with cast members and guests in mind.

2020 ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel bookings were paused so that the Resort could focus on helping existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders plan their visits with the new Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system.

Beginning tomorrow, July 9, ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel bookings for 2020 will resume. Guests will soon be able to purchase new tickets and plan future visits throughout this year with the Disney Park Pass system, which is being used to help manage attendance during this reopening period.

For those looking to make their plans right away, please note that tickets and Disney Resort hotel bookings may be released at different times throughout the day tomorrow. In addition, virtual waiting rooms will be used as needed to manage the high volume of guests looking to plan their visits.

All guests with valid admission are required to make a reservation in advance for each park entry, so be sure to check the park reservation availability calendar before purchasing any new tickets and then go directly to DisneyWorld.com/DisneyParkPass after purchase to make park reservations.

Reservations are limited and subject to availability. Please note that, during this phased reopening, some tickets, ticket options, and Disney Resort hotels are unavailable, but there are still a variety of options to choose from.

Though the experience may be different than the last time you visited, there is so much to look forward to, with many favorite attractions and dozens of entertainment offerings, including special new character cavalcades and the Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.

If you’re planning a visit for this year, it is recommended that you check out the “Know Before You Go” page at DisneyWorld.com/Updates, where tips can be found along with information like how to make park reservations after purchasing tickets.

Walt Disney World realizes that everyone’s situation is unique, so if there are any specific questions about plans, call the Disney Reservation Center, submit questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel or speak with your travel provider for more details.
