At this time, in order to visit a Walt Disney World theme park — Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom — one must present a valid theme park ticket as well as a Park Pass reservation, and according to the Park Pass calendar, Mother’s Day is looking like it will be a busy day at Disney World as Park Passes are booking up fast.

If you are wanting to visit a Disney World theme park on Mother’s Day itself — Sunday, May 9 — Annual Passholders can choose between Disney’s Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, or Disney’s Hollywood Studios as Magic Kingdom is completely booked up.

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.
