New from Disney Parks Blog:
**The key dates are:
June 22nd for Disney Resort guests
June 26th for AP Holders (that will be those without onsite reservations)
June 28th for other Ticket holders**
There is a park availability chart available here:
Change the category at the top. Where thee is one or more parks not available, it tells you underneath the calendar which park(s) are booked out.
From several sources, you will need to use the website to book, not the app.
There was an AP glitch that prevented some people from booking all days. That has apparently been apparently sorted.
If you had MNSSHP tickets, even if they are no longer showing in MDE, booking that day apparently stop you booking any more.
Solution: book you MNSSHP day last.
- So there’s also some weird glitch that Blog Mickey posted about. If you have different length tickets, or an AP with other tickets, the system is only recognising the shorter ticket.
A solution is to reassign the “extra” ticket to a dummy profile, and then book for you. Then reassign the ticket back.
Read about it here
- So you’re still blocked from further park days and have an unactivated AP voucher?
The unactivated APs were not reset when they fixed glitch #1 above. And if you had already booked a reservation against it, then it needs to be reset like the active APs were.
Solution is to call and ask the CS rep to call the Escalation Team to reset the unactivated AP.
This is the WDW info page:
This includes a step by step guide to the booking process.
Park reservations will be available through September 26, 2021, based on your Resort stay and ticket eligibility or ticket eligibility window.
If you booked a vacation package, your ticket eligibility is tied to your package travel dates. To make a park reservation for a different date, be sure to modify your vacation package dates.
Sounds like this is limiting those with onsite/offsite plans to just booking for onsite days for now.
If you have a room-only reservation at a Disney Resort or other select hotel for a stay in 2021, please call the Disney Reservation Center or call your travel professional beginning on June 24 to upgrade to a vacation package with tickets—and then make your theme park reservations.
I hope this is poorly worded, and it should say 2020 or 2021. It would be worthwhile checking on the 24th and again on the 28th
Here’s the important stuff from the DPB article for now:
- You’ll need a My Disney Experience account , as this is where your Walt Disney World Resort plans are stored and managed.
- You’ll also need a valid theme park ticket or Annual Pass that’s linked to your My Disney Experience account.
- If you have a Disney Resort hotel reservation , be sure to link it to your My Disney Experience account beforehand, as well.
Once you’ve logged into your My Disney Experience account and linked your ticket, you’ll have access to a calendar of available reservation dates for each theme park. If you have a multi-day ticket, you will be required to make a park reservation for each date of your visit. Families and friends can link their tickets together and look to arrange theme park entries at the same time.
Please note, park reservations are limited in number and subject to availability. Availability can change until the reservation is finalized. At this time, guests will be able to select one park per day; visiting more than one park per day will be temporarily unavailable upon the reopening of the theme parks due to attendance limitations.
(See article for what to do about park hopper tickets).
For Existing Ticket Holders and Annual Passholders: Beginning this week, we will reach out to existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders with more information on when they will be able to check availability to make their park reservations. We will open the Disney Park Pass system to these guests in phases, beginning with those with future Disney Resort and other select hotel stays. Later this summer, we will resume sales of 2020 tickets and Disney Resort hotel arrivals, based on availability of park reservations, while we continue to provide guests with existing tickets and Annual Passholders the opportunity to make park reservations for 2020 dates.
Planning a New Trip for Next Year: By June 28, all guests will be able to purchase new Disney Resort hotel packages and theme park tickets and make their park reservations for arrivals starting in 2021 as our phased reopening continues. Guests will be able to view park reservation availability on DisneyWorld.com prior to purchasing their tickets.
