    I'm currently a DVC member and WDW Annual Passholder. If I show up at a park during my next vacation, and I haven't made an advance park reservation, will I be turned away at the gate, even if the park is not at "capacity"?

    Hello, James and from one Disney Vacation Club Member to another let me also say, "welcome home!"

    James, at this time ALL guests are required to hold a Disney Park Pass reservation in order to gain park access. However, I'm happy to report that this can be easily managed through your My Disney Experience Mobile App and can be done the same day (pending availability). So, if you like your trips to be a bit more spontaneous, you're welcome to check availability and make a Disney Park Pass reservation before heading out the door!

    Wherever your adventures take you next, I hope you'll enjoy all the Magic that comes with being a Disney Vacation Club Member and Annual Pass holder. With the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort now in full swing, you'll find enchantment at every turn.
