The Walt Disney World Park Pass reservation system calendar has now been extended to include dates into January 2022.

As you can see from this screenshot below that Inside the Magic took of the Disney Park Pass availability calendar, there are currently reservations available at all four Disney World theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios — from January 1, 2022 through January 14, 2022.

It is important to remember that, at this time, you will not be able to enter any of Walt Disney World Resort’s four theme parks without a valid Park Pass reservation. Earlier this year, Chairman of Parks, Experiences and Products Josh D’Amaro indicated that the reservation system is a “new normal” that isn’t going away anytime soon, if ever.

Disney’s official Park Pass web page features these details about the system, which has been in-place since Disney World’s July 2020 reopening:

The Disney Park Pass system is now open to Guests with valid admission. The number of theme park reservation days you can hold at one time varies based on your plans:

  • Disney Resort and other select hotel Guests can make park reservations for dates during their stay for the number of days that they have valid theme park admission.
  • Annual Passholders can make theme park reservations for up to 3 days at a time, and for their length of stay if staying at a Disney Resort or other select hotel.
  • Existing ticket holders can make reservations for the number of days of valid theme park admission.

Park reservations are available for arrivals through the end of 2021, based on your vacation package and ticket eligibility or ticket eligibility window.

If you booked a vacation package, your ticket eligibility is tied to your package travel dates. To make a park reservation for a different date, be sure to modify your vacation package dates.

If you have a room-only reservation at a Disney Resort or other select hotel, please call the Disney Reservation Center or call your travel professional to upgrade to a vacation package with tickets—and then make your theme park reservations.
