All reservations are officially gone for every Walt Disney World Resort theme park this morning.

For Disney World’s Annual Passholders, this means that Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom are all off limits until 2 p.m. (when Annual Passholders are once again allowed into the parks without a reservation).

There is also the possibility that Disney may add more Annual Passholder reservations later today — at least for some theme parks.

Capacity has been hit or miss for Disney World passholders so far this winter, seemingly set randomly on different days.

This has resulted in Annual Passholders being locked out of the parks on occasion. While Disney recently introduced “Good-to-Go” days where Passholders are able to enter without a reservation (as all dated ticket holders are now able to do at Walt Disney World), these have proven relatively pointless, with very few days falling into this category.

Other than today, currently, no dates are listed as sold out to Annual Passholders through to February 2025.

Single-day tickets are still available to purchase for all four theme parks today (suggesting that capacity is not an actual issue for Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, or any other park right now). However, the parks are expected to fill up over the upcoming President’s Day weekend.

Due to cold temperatures, these four theme parks are the only options available to Walt Disney World Resort guests this weekend. Blizzard Beach — Disney’s ironically winter-themed water park — is currently scheduled to close on Saturday (February 17) and Sunday (February 18) as a cool front moves across Central Florida, bringing rain and lows of 54 degrees Fahrenheit.

Blizzard Beach is scheduled to close for its annual months-long refurbishment on March 16, 2024, while Typhoon Lagoon will take its place and reopen for the summer season on March 17. The Disney park has faced recurrent weather-related closures over the winter.
