Previously, all four Disney Parks at Walt Disney World Resort were fully booked for Annual Passholders this July. However, on the morning of Thursday, July 16, 2020, Annual Passholders awoke to find a notification from Walt Disney World saying:
Additional Disney Park Pass reservations are now available for Passholders for Select Days in July and August.
Upon further investigation we found new availability in July and August, but also in September as well. For example, we previously reported the following dates were unavailable for Magic Kingdom for Annual Passholders, but in the screenshot below you can now see every date is currently green (meaning there is availability at every park).
- Saturday, September 5, 2020.
- Sunday, September 6, 2020.
- Monday, September 7, 2020.
- Saturday, September 12, 2020.
- Saturday, September 19, 2020.
The news of this increased availability broke on July 14 as Walt Disney World released an official statement notifying Passholders that:
Starting Thursday, July 16, additional Disney Park Pass reservation availability will be offered to Annual Passholders on select dates in July and August at Magic Kingdom park, Epcot and Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Please note that this additional Disney Park Pass reservation availability does not reflect an increase in park attendance, which remains limited during this reopening period.
At the same time, Disney World also confirmed that Annual Passholders will be able to make rolling park pass reservations. This means that Passholders will not have to wait until they have used all three of their Disney Park Pass reservations to make another one. As soon as they use one, they can make another one.
We at Inside the Magic had been staying up-to-date on the availability of Disney’s park pass system and had reported that all of July was completely booked up for all parks.
Now, as this article has been written, it appears that the only theme park unavailable for Passholders in the month of July is Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney’s Animal Kingdom also shows no availability on July 28.
At the time this article is being written, the entire first half of August is also booked for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is booked for August 22.
Remember that the increased availability does not mean an increase in park pass reservations. Disney World Annual Passholders are still restricted to only making three reservations at a time.
