When Walt Disney World Resort began its phased reopening in July 2020 following its pandemic-related closure, there were many changes Guests had to get used to.
While some of these COVID-19 restrictions — including both mandatory face masks and social distancing requirements — have been loosened or removed, the Disney Park Pass reservation system remains. This system was originally implemented to help limit capacity at Disney World’s four theme parks, but has been extended into 2023, meaning it isn’t going away anytime soon.
There are three Disney Park Pass categories — Theme Park Tickets, Select Resort Hotel Guests, and Annual Passholders — and, for some, it has been challenging to secure Park Passes for specific theme parks.
For the remainder of July, however, Walt Disney World Resort Guests currently have their pick of theme parks to visit! Here, we take a look at the Park Pass availability calendar for the rest of the month — it will leave you in a good mood if you’re planning a trip to Disney World this week or next week!
Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholders are currently able to reserve entry into all four theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom — any day for the remainder of July 2021.
This is exciting news for AP Guests who have sometimes found themselves frustrated by the lack of Park Pass availability at the Parks since last summer.
Select Resort Hotels and Theme Park Tickets
Both Select Resort Hotel Guest and Theme Park Ticketholders can make Disney Park Pass reservations for nearly all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks through the end of July 2021.
Next week, only Magic Kingdom is currently unavailable for these Guests, while there is full availability during the final week of July at this time.
The Walt Disney World Resort website features the following reminder about theme park entry:
To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid ticket or pass for the same park on the same date is required. Upon reopening, certain parks, hotels, restaurants, attractions, services, experiences, amenities and other offerings will be modified or unavailable, will have limited capacity, and will be subject to limited availability or even closure, and that park admission and offerings are not guaranteed.
It is worth noting that Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek previously confirmed that the theme parks have already started increasing capacity once again amid changes to the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines. At this time, we do not know exactly what percentage of maximum capacity Walt Disney World is operating at, but we know it is higher than 35%.
