Lately, we have been seeing Disney Park Passes run out quickly, even, at times, months in advance. When it comes to holidays, this becomes even more accurate as many Guests visit Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. To specifically help those planning to visit Disney World for Memorial Day weekend, we have taken a look at the Disney Park Availability Calendar for May 31 and the weekend prior, and it is looking like things are starting to fill up, so if you plan on visiting, making a Park Pass reservation as soon as possible is in your best interest.

As you may know, there are three different categories of Disney Park Pass availability. Each category has its own allotted amount of Park Passes available. For Guests who hold standard Theme Park Tickets, Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are both at capacity for Memorial Day weekend, from Friday through to Monday.

Select Resort Hotel Guests also have the same availability, so those Guests can also only choose between Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios through the long weekend.

Annual Passholders, however, have the best availability at this time. All four parks are currently available to be booked. This is likely because many Passholders are local to Orlando or Central Florida, so unlike those traveling from out of town on vacation, locals are not thinking as far ahead of time.

All of this being said, if you are planning on vacationing to the Walt Disney World Resort during a holiday or peak season, be sure to always book your Disney Park Passes ahead of time if possible, preferably over a month in advance as we can see on Memorial Day weekend, some parks are already gone.

That being said, now that Park Hopping is back, as long as the park you want to visit is not at capacity after 2:00 p.m., you can make a Disney Park Pass reservation for an available park, visit there, then head to the second park which may not have had Park Pass availability previously.

How early in advance do you try to book Disney Park Passes?
