Some good stuff was announced by Disney today. We just talked about something we’re glad is coming back next year, and now we’re talking about something we’re glad is going away next year.
Disney has announced that the theme park reservation system will end on January 9, 2024 for date-based tickets. What does this mean? Well, it means you can have a little more flexibility added back to your trip, because you will not have to decide which park to go to ahead of time. So if you wake up and decide you want to visit Hollywood Studios instead of Magic Kingdom that day, you can do that without checking for availability.
This change is for date-based tickets. So that means when you purchase tickets separately or when you have a package that includes tickets, if the date you pick for the start of your ticket is January 9, 2024 and beyond you will not have to make a theme park reservation for each day of the ticket. This change does not apply to all ticket types, there are some tickets that will still require reservations. Those ticket types are student group tickets, sport and convention tickets, Annual Passes, and other ticket types not mentioned.
I know this will be welcome news for a lot of Disney World fans, myself included. It will be nice to have that bit of flexibility back.
Are you happy to see the theme park reservation system end for date-based tickets?
Thanks for reading!
