Get Ready to discover Walt Disney World in Florida. Here are some of the key things to know before you goWalt Disney World may be different from the last time you visited. But together with Disney, you can find new ways to create magical moments - and memories to treasure.

Top Things You Should Know As You Prepare to Visit:

Disney Park Reservations

  • For visits from now until 8 January 2024, both a valid Disney Ticket AND a date-specific theme park reservation are required to enter a Disney Theme Park
  • For visits after 9 January 2024 no theme park reservations are needed! Just a valid Disney ticket is all you need to enter a Disney Park.

Additional Disney Park Information

  • Park Hopper hours will start at 2.00pm each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time. The ability to visit another park will be subject to the park’s capacity limitations. 
  • Disney Water Parks are subject to seasonal closure each year for maintenance and refurbishment. Disney Magic Tickets will include admission to Disney's Blizzard Beach or Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, whichever is open
  • The My Disney Experience App and Disney Genie Service will help you make the most of the magic

Theme Park Reservation Availability


If you are visiting Walt Disney World between now and 8 January 2024, before you visit a Disney Park, you need to make a Disney Park reservation for each day of your ticket using the Disney Park Pass System.

Making your Disney Park Reservations is easy! First, you need to either purchase your Disney Tickets or book a Disney Resort Hotel + Ticket package:

  • Ticket Only: Start making your Disney Park reservations upon receipt of your Disney Tickets (uploaded to your Customer Account instantly upon full payment)
  • Disney Resort Hotel + Ticket Packages: Disney Hotel guests can start making their Disney Park Reservations straight away - secure your dream Disney holiday today with a £100 deposit and then start booking your Disney Park Days as soon as you receive your Disney Hotel Confirmation Reference.

TOP TIP: We highly recommend that you make your Disney Park reservations as soon as you receive either your Disney Ticket Confirmation or your Disney Hotel Confirmation reference, as Disney Park availability can change until the reservation is finalised.

How It Works

Here’s how to use the Disney Park Pass system - and start planning for your visit to Walt Disney World in Florida.

Step 1: Link Your Admission to Your Disney Account
To get started, you’ll need your Disney Ticket Confirmation or a confirmed Disney Resort Hotel + Ticket Booking Reference which you can find in your AttractionTickets.com Customer Account.

  • First, you’ll need an account on My Disney Experience which is where your Walt Disney World plans are stored and managed. Create an account or sign in to your existing account
  • Then, link your valid Disney Ticket Confirmation or Disney Hotel Booking Reference to your Disney account
  • Please use the My Disney Experience website NOT the My Disney Experience App to set up your account and link your Disney Ticket Confirmation/Disney Hotel Booking Reference

Once your Disney booking is linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can begin to make a Disney Park reservation.

Step 2: Create Your Party
When you begin to make a reservation, you’ll be prompted to create your party from your Family & Friends list.

  • Simply select the family and friends you’d like to include, then select “Continue”
  • Don’t see someone in your travel party? Select “Add a Guest” to include them
  • Staying in a Disney Resort? Everyone in your party must also have a hotel reservation. If this varies, you will need to make separate Disney Park Pass reservations.

Step 3: Select a Date and Disney Park
Choose the date and the Disney theme park that you’d like to visit from the available reservations. Please note that dates and theme park selections are limited and subject to availability. After creating your party in the Disney Park Pass system, you’ll be prompted to:

  • Select a Date: View a calendar and choose one of the available dates for your visit.
  • Select a Theme Park: Park hours will be displayed for your convenience.
  • Select a Time: This is the time that you can visit the park.
  • Confirm your reservation.

Step 4: Review and Confirm Your Plans
Carefully review and confirm your selected park and date.

  • If you need to make any changes, select “Back” to revise your selections.
  • Before confirming, you’ll need to agree to the Terms & Conditions. Then, select “Confirm” to complete your park reservation.
  • Once confirmed, your Disney Park reservation will appear in My Plans.

Want to make another Disney Park reservation? Select “Make Another Reservation” to continue planning. As a reminder, if you have a multi-day ticket, you will be required to make a park reservation for each date of your visit.

Your new reservation(s) will appear in My Plans - both online and in the My Disney Experience app.

If you need to cancel a reservation, view your daily itinerary in My Plans, then select “Reservation Details”.

Park Hopping

The 'Park Hopping' benefit is available to all guests with a Disney Magic Ticket, allowing you to visit more than one Disney Park. Park Hopping will be available from 2.00pm each day, subject to park capacity limitations.

  • Online Check-In at Disney Resort Hotels: To aid in physical distancing efforts, we strongly recommend that you use Online Check-In Service prior to your arrival. When your room is ready, you’ll get a room-ready notification. Then, you can use either a MagicBand or the app’s digital key feature to enter your room!
