Hi everyone –
The Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom have been open for a few days, and Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios officially open tomorrow. Those who have been to the parks over the last week will have used the Disney Park Pass system to make reservations, which has helped keep crowds low. Walt Disney World Annual Passholders are able to hold three reservations at one time and availability has been limited. Disney has now announced that more availability will be available for Passholders on select dates in July and August for Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Disney’s Animal Kingdom parks starting on July 16th, 2020. It will not effect attendance. Read below for more information from Disney including about the 30% Passholder merchandise discount and more.

Starting Thursday, July 16, additional Disney Park Pass reservation availability will be offered to Annual Passholders on select dates in July and August at Magic Kingdom park, Epcot and Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Please note that this additional Disney Park Pass reservation availability does not reflect an increase in park attendance, which remains limited during this reopening period.
- Annual Passholders staying at select Disney Resort or other select hotels with valid theme park admission are eligible to make theme park reservations for each day of their stay(s), and now in addition, all Annual Passholders are eligible to make theme park reservations for up to 3 days at a time on a rolling basis.
- Once you use a theme park reservation, you can make another reservation for a future date.
In June, we shared that Annual Passholders can receive a one-month extension to their pass. This additional month will automatically be processed and visible in your My Disney Experience account over the coming weeks. If Passholders prefer, in lieu of the additional one-month extension, Passholders may choose to cancel their annual pass. If Passholders choose this option, their annual pass will remain valid through August 11, 2020 and will be canceled effective August 12, 2020.
Passholders can select this option now through August 11, 2020 by clicking on their personalized link that will be included in an email. Alternatively, Passholders may call V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at 407-939-7277 for assistance and any individual concerns. Please note that once submitted, selections cannot be changed.
Also, beginning today, Passholders can receive 30% off select merchandise purchases at Walt Disney World Resort owned and operated merchandise locations now through August 14, 2020.
