Select ticket holders can no longer visit EPCOT or Magic Kingdom on New Year’s Eve this year as Park Passes are already booked up.

For starters, 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.

Now, according to the Walt Disney World website, both theme park ticket holders and Disney World Resort hotel Guests can no longer book a Park Pass for EPCOT. You can see this reflected in both screenshots below.

As far as Annual Passholders go, EPCOT still has availability for December 31; however, Magic Kingdom does not. You can see this reflected in the screenshot below.

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.

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.
