In case you aren’t familiar, when Disney World reopened to Guests in July 2020, the Orlando Resort implemented a new reservation system that requires those who wish to visit a Walt Disney World theme park — Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom — to have both a valid ticket and a reservation for the park they wish to visit on that day. This reservation system is called the Disney Park Pass system.

At this time, the Disney Park Pass system currently allows Guests to book available theme parks through January 2023, indicating that theme park reservations are not going away anytime soon, so Guests should get familiarized with the system if they are wanting to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Well, if you’ve been wanting to visit Disney World sometime in the rest of March but have been struggling to secure a Park Pass, we have good news. When looking at the calendar for the remainder of the month, though previously many days were completely booked for certain ticket holders, now there is once again availability! Here’s what we found.

Theme Park Ticket Holders

Previously, we reported that Theme Park Tickets could only book an EPCOT Park Pass for March 27. But now, that has opened up! Currently, theme park ticket holders can book the following Park Passes:

  • Magic Kingdom Park Pass for March 27
  • EPCOT Park Pass for March 27-31
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park Pass for March 26-28
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios remains fully booked for the remainder of March

Select Disney Resort Guests

The same goes for select Resort Guests. Previously, we reported that select Resort Guests could only book an EPCOT Park Pass for March 27 but now, Resort Guests can book the following Park Passes:

  • Magic Kingdom Park Pass for March 27
  • EPCOT Park Pass for March 27-31
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park Pass for March 26-28
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios remains fully booked for the remainder of March

Annual Passholders

Annual Passholders, on the other hand, have less availability than they did prior. Currently, Annual Passholders can still book the following Park Passes:

  • Magic Kingdom Park Pass for March 27-28 and March 30-31
  • EPCOT Park Pass for March 27-31
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park Pass for March 27-31
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios for March 29-31

Previously, we reported Annual Passholders has a bit more flexibility as March 22, 23, 24, and 26 were completely booked but March 27, 29, 30, and 31 were all wide open. You can see now that has changed and the availability for Annual Passholders has dwindled.

It is important to always check the official Walt Disney World website and the availability calendar before planning your Disney World vacation as Park Pass availability is subject to change.

More Information on the Disney World Park Pass System

Disney World implemented this new reservation system to Guests who wish to visit a Walt Disney World theme park — Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom. In order to enter a theme park, Guests must have both a valid ticket and a reservation for the park they wish to visit on that day.

In 2020, Chairman of Parks, Experiences and Products Josh D’Amaro indicated that the newly implemented Park Pass system is a “new normal” that isn’t going away anytime soon, if ever, so Guests should get accustomed to utilizing the Disney Park Pass system if they are planning a trip to Walt Disney World.

In case you aren’t familiar with the Disney Park Pass system, the official Walt Disney World website describes it as:

Please note that park reservations are limited in number and subject to availability. Availability can change until the park reservation is finalized.

Purchase Tickets

Explore a variety of ticket options. Once you purchase your tickets, then you can make your park reservations.

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.

Room-and-ticket packages may also be available. 

Please review any advisories or restrictions in place for travel to Florida, and do not travel to or enter Walt Disney World Resort unless you are free of any COVID-19 symptoms and otherwise comply with the requirements of such advisories and restrictions.

Additionally, there are three different Park Pass options depending on which type of theme park ticket or reservation you have. For example, if you are an Annual Passholder you will have a different tier of availability as an existing ticket holder or a Disney World Resort Guest.

The official Disney World website states:

Park attendance is managed via the Disney Park Pass reservation system—now available to Guests with valid admission. To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date are required for Guests ages 3 and up.

Booking Your Park Reservations

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.
