As part of the change, passholders will be able to visit the theme parks after 2 p.m. without needing a reservation, except for Magic Kingdom on Saturdays and Sundays.
Disney didn’t share an exact date for when the change would take affect only that will start “in the next few months.”
Disney first introduced the park pass reservation system as a way to manage crowds during the pandemic. But when other pandemic-related measures were lifted, the reservation system remained.
Also in the coming months, visitors who pay for Genie+ will receive free digital downloads of their PhotoPass attraction photos taken on the day of their visit.

In a blog post, Disney Parks chairman Josh D’Amaro said the changes will “increase flexibility” and add value to the “guests experience.”
“I’m excited about all of these changes and offers and want you to know that we are committed to listening, adapting, and staying relentlessly focused on making the guest experience at our Disney parks even better,” D’Amaro said.
