in Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has just released an update on its ticketing system to reflect multi-park day tickets and sold out theme park days. This new update is to hopefully help Guests, who have a multi-day ticket, visit the theme parks without any hassle or stress since the Disney World theme parks have recently been reaching capacity more often.

Disney’s update reads:

As a reminder, Guests purchasing date-based, multi-day Walt Disney World theme park tickets may select their days of admission from a specific time range (also known as their validity window). Therefore, we recently updated our ticketing systems to allow you to order multi-day theme park tickets, even in circumstances where Disney Park Pass reservations may no longer be available for select days during that guest’s validity window.

In this situation, [Guests] will be able to make theme park reservations on days within the ticket’s validity window (based on theme park availability), although he or she will not be able to make a reservation or visit a park on a day when reservations are unavailable.  

For example:

  • [Guests] request a 3-day Walt Disney World theme park base ticket (last day of the validity window is 4 days after the selected start date)
  • They select a start date of March 1, however in this example let’s assume that there are no Disney Park Pass reservations available for March 3 but Disney Park Pass reservations are available for all of the other days during the validity window.
  • In this example, [Guests] will be unable to visit the theme parks on March 3, but may use their 3-day ticket to obtain a Disney Park Pass on three of the other four days within their validity window: 
    • March 1
    • March 2
    • March 4
    • March 5

We expect that Walt Disney World multi-day, date based tickets will remain unavailable for order in situations where there are too many days within the ticket’s validity window where Disney Park Pass reservations are unavailable, and therefore [Guests] would (as of the time of the order) be unable to make park reservations for the full amount of days available on their ticket. 

Please remember: To enter a theme park, all Guests ages 3 and older must have a park reservation in addition to valid admission for the same park on the same date.
