WDW Guests Will Need Reservations to Enter Parks when they Reopen in July 1

With the Disney announcements yesterday, one question that keeps popping up is about reservations needed to get into the parks when the reopen in July. Here’s a bit more about that-

From WESH News Orlando-

Walt Disney World officials announced that guests will need to obtain a reservation for park entry when the theme parks reopen in July.

The new system will help with making sure the park stays at a limited capacity. For now, new ticket sales have been paused, as well as Disney Resort hotel reservations, unless you are a Disney Vacation Club member.

Disney remarked that the decision was made to focus on guests with existing tickets and reservations.

Annual Passholders and existing ticket holders will be able to make reservation requests in phases before new tickets are sold. Disney officials said those people will be given additional information soon.

Because attendance at the theme parks will be limited, reservations to the theme parks will also be limited.

Disney plans to reopen Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom July 11 and Epcot and Hollywood Studios on July 15. The plans were already approved by Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings and now must be approved by Gov. Ron DeSantis.

In addition to the reservation system, Disney is suspending meet-and-greets, fireworks and parades to promote social distancing.

Hand sanitizer will be available and crews will be implementing enhanced cleaning measures throughout the resort.

Guests at Walt Disney World will have their temperature checked and will be required to wear face coverings.

Stay tuned for more updates as we see them!
