CHANGE to Booking Park Passes on Disney World’s App

A BIG change happened when Disney World reopened in 2020 and guests were introduced to the park pass reservation system.


If you want to visit Animal Kingdom, you have to book a park pass reservation

That system has stayed in place, and it seems like it’s going to be around for at least a while longer. So Disney World guests now must have a valid ticket PLUS a reservation for a park for a specific day (although they can hop to another park later without a reservation for THAT park). Now, how that reservation is made looks a little different on the My Disney Experience app.

When you book a park pass reservation on the My Disney Experience app, you get a page with the Disney World calendar, where you would be prompted to click on a date. Once that date was clicked on, you’d go to a page with a lot of condensed information that could get a little confusing. Now the page you get is more streamlined with all four parks listed with each park icon.



Choose “select” on the park you want, and then continue to make your park pass reservation. For those NEW to park pass reservations, it might be easier to go on the Disney World website to make them — we’ve outlined the entire process here.  Note that you cannot enter a park in Disney World without a ticket AND a park pass reservation.



We also cannot stress how important it is to make those park pass reservations for each day of your Disney World trip as soon as you cansome busy days can sell out and if you don’t jump on those reservations quickly, you may not be able to get those reservations you want for the days you want.


Magic Kingdom park passes often sell out for holidays.

If you forget to book those park pass reservations, you can still wait to see if more open up for that day (it does happen from time to time), but it is not a guarantee. If all else fails, you can book for a different park, and if you have the park hopping option on your ticket, you can head to the park you originally wanted later that day (at 2PM). We’ve got more details about that here.
