LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Disney World annual passholders now have a little more flexibility when it comes to their theme park visits.

What You Need To Know

  • Disney World passholders can visit the theme parks after 2 p.m. without needing a park reservation, except Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom

  • The new rules were announced in January in response to guests' feedback

  • The park reservation system, which was introduced in 2020, will remain in place

  • RELATED: Disney World to resume selling new annual passes this month

Starting Tuesday, passholders can visit the parks after 2 p.m. without needing to make a park reservation, except on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom.

And blockout dates for passes remain in effect.

The park pass reservation system was introduced in 2020 after Disney World reopened its parks following a four-month pandemic-related shutdown. But guests, including passholders, have called the system limiting.

In January, Disney World announced the change in response to guest feedback and to “improve the guest experience.”

“While the theme park reservation system remains important to manage attendance in our parks, especially on busier days, we realize our passholders enjoy more spontaneous visits — and this change will make that possible,” Disney said in a post on the official Disney Parks Blog at the time.

The change comes ahead of Disney World resuming new sales of its annual passes. On Thursday, the Incredi-Pass, the Sorcerer Pass and the Pirate Pass — which have been unavailable for purchase since November 2021 — will be available online.
