    How does the new park booking work as usually ticket release tickets 30 days prior to departure?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dan. I am so happy you stopped by. 

    There are a lot of changes going on at the Most Magical Place on Earth, and you have come to the right place for answers!

    Dan, what we know so far is that there is a new park reservation system that will allow you to reserve one theme park per day of your visit. Once this reservation system opens, you will be able to make reservations through September 2021. 

    Based on your Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation status and ticket type, you can make theme park reservations on: 

    June 22nd - If you have reservations at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or other select hotels as well as valid theme park admission tickets

    June 26th - If you have a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass with no corresponding hotel stay

    June 28th - If you have valid existing tickets with no corresponding hotel stay

    Please note that you must have active tickets in order to make park reservations. If you have not yet purchased tickets for your 2020 holiday, ticket sales will resume later this summer. If you are planning on visiting us in 2021, you can purchase your ticket and hotel stay starting June 28th. Once you have an existing ticket in hand, you will then be able to make your theme park reservations. 

    Dan, in order to maintain social distancing, the existing FastPass+ program has been suspended until further notice. Once dining reservations open for your travel dates, you will be able to make these reservations 60-days in advance, as opposed to the normal 180 days. 

    While things may look a little different now than they did on your last holiday, there are some exciting happenings going on at Walt Disney World Resort. You can encounter your favorite characters in new and exciting ways and visit a first of its kind festival that combines the beauty of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival with the deliciousness of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.

    I hope that this provided some clarity, Dan. Please come back here to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical adventure. 

    See you real soon!
