Disney has officially updated the Walt Disney World Resort website so that today, July 9, 2020 tickets and hotel bookings are on sale! Keep in mind that a the WDW website has a virtual queue in place in order to accommodate Guests. So at this time, it’s unclear when everyone will be able to get through so they can purchase their tickets or book their hotels and vacation packages.
Below you will find our original coverage of the announcement from yesterday when Disney shared that 2020 tickets sales and hotel bookings would resume.
As Walt Disney World Resort was hard at work preparing for the reopening of their theme parks and hotels, they temporarily paused ticket sales. This assisted in allowing Guests who have existing tickets and Annual Passes to be able to get a date to visit the parks using the new reservation system called the Disney Park Pass system. Disney has now announced that 2020 ticket sales and hotel bookings will resume tomorrow.
Keep in mind that Disney has not announced an exact time for when the ticket sales and hotel bookings will become available.
Below is the official announcement from Disney:
We are glad to share that beginning tomorrow, July 9, we will resume ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel bookings for 2020. Guests will soon be able to purchase new tickets and plan future visits throughout this year with the Disney Park Pass system, which we are using to help manage attendance during this reopening period.
For those looking to make their plans right away, please note that tickets and Disney Resort hotel bookings may be released at different times throughout the day tomorrow. In addition, we will use virtual waiting rooms as needed to manage the high volume of guests looking to plan their visits.
All guests with valid admission are required to make a reservation in advance for each park entry, so be sure to check the park reservation availability calendar before purchasing any new tickets and then go directly to DisneyWorld.com/DisneyParkPass after your purchase to make your park reservations. Reservations are limited and subject to availability. Please note that, during this phased reopening, some tickets, ticket options and Disney Resort hotels are unavailable, but there are still a variety of options to choose from.
In order to used your newly purchased ticket, you’ll need to make a Disney Park Pass reservation. These are the dates that are no longer available for reservation, but more do seem to be appearing so continue to check back for updates.
