Since Walt Disney World’s phased reopening in 2020, Disney implemented a system called the Disney Park Pass system. Keep in mind that Guests who are planning to visit for the 50th anniversary and beyond may have to get accustomed to this new system as it has been extended until 2023, which is pretty amazing since Walt Disney World’s 50th Celebration will last a total of 18 months!

Want to know how to book a Park Pass? As per the official Walt Disney World website:

To enter a theme park, you will need a park reservation and valid admission for that park—for each day you’d like to visit.

Before You Make a Purchase

Please check to see if your desired date and theme park is currently available before purchasing your ticket, Annual Pass or vacation package. Keep your reservation date preference in mind when selecting your ticket, Annual Pass or package. Different types of admission—such as tickets, Annual Passes or packages—may have different reservation date availability. See which hotels qualify as “Select Resort Hotels.”
