Changes Coming to Disney World Park Pass Reservations in 2024

by | May 8, 2023 | WDW News

Disney has shared that changes will be coming for Park Pass reservations in 2024 for date-based tickets, Passholders, and Cast Members.

On May 31st, 2023, bookings will be available for 2024 Disney World vacations. Ahead of that, Disney has shared a few major updates that will be coming to the parks in the year ahead. For stays starting January 9th, 2024, the Disney Dining Plan will be available when you purchase a vacation package. Additionally, Disney has shared some updates on Park Pass reservations in 2024.

Removing Theme Park Reservations for Date-Based Tickets

Starting with parks visits on January 9th, 2024, Park Pass reservations will no longer be required when you purchase a date-based ticket. What that means is that if you purchase a date-based ticket for a specific day, you will not also need to make a Park Pass reservation for that time. Note that if you are purchasing any other type of admission that is non-dated, you may still be required to make a Park Pass reservation.

“Good-to-Go” Days for Annual Passholders and Cast Members

Another change for 2024 will be the introduction of “good-to-go” days for Annual Passholders and Cast Members. These will be select days that Passholders and Disney Cast Members will be able to go to the theme parks without needing a Park Pass reservation. Once introduced, these days will be rolled out on an ongoing basis.

This will be in addition to the current Passholder requirements, which allow Passholders to visit any theme park without a Park Pass reservation after 2 PM (except on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom). “Good-to-go” days will vary by park, and block out dates for your pass will still apply..

Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours to Continue

Along with Park Pass reservation changes, Disney has also shared that Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours will continue in 2024. Early Theme Park Entry is available to any guest at a Disney World Resort hotel, allowing guests to enter any Disney World theme park 30 minutes prior to opening. Extended Evening Hours is available for guests at Disney World Deluxe Resort hotels or Deluxe Villas, allowing them to stay in the parks an extra two hours after closing on select dates (you can check out the list of dates and availability here).
