How to Make Disney Park Pass Reservations

If you’re visiting Walt Disney World in 2024, then take a look at this quick guide for what you need to know before you go. You do not need a Park Pass Reservation for date based tickets, however Disney annual passholders are still required to make par pass reservations, with the exception of Good to Go Days. Read on for all the details!

Do You Need a Disney Park Pass Reservation in 2024?

No. If you’ve purchased Date Based Tickets either individually, through a discount retailer or as part of a Disney Resort package, you do not need to make a Park Pass Reservation. However, if you’re a Disney Annual Passholder, a park pass reservation is still required. 

Do You Need a Park Pass Reservation in 2024 if You’re an Annual Passholder?

Yes, with the exception of Good to Go Days, it appears as if Disney will still require that Annual Passholders have park pass reservations in 2024, if they do not have date-based tickets. For Annual Passholders and Cast Members Good To Go Days Will Not Require Park Pass Reservations. But, other days will. 

In 2024, we plan to offer select days on which our Annual Passholders* and Disney cast members may visit Walt Disney World theme parks without needing a park reservation. Once introduced, we will roll out these good-to-go days on an ongoing basis. This will be in addition to the recent update which offers Passholders the opportunity to visit the theme parks after 2 p.m. without needing a park reservation, except on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom Park. Good-to-go days may vary by park, and pass block out dates and capacity limitations continue to apply like they do today. Please stay tuned for more details on good-to-go days.

Who can make Disney Park Pass Reservations?

Park Pass Reservations are still available in the app and online on the Disney Park Reservation Calendar. At present only Annual Passholders and Cast Members are required to “schedule” their park visit ahead of time. 

  • Annual Passholders
  • Cast Members

Walt Disney World Annual Passholders are only able to make up to park pass reservations for up to 3 days at a time, and many perks of having the pass will not be available through this time. Read all the annual passholder rules for park reservations.

Annual Passholder Good to Go Days 2024

Good to Go Days at Walt Disney World Parks are offered intermittently and will allow Annual Passholders to visit select theme parks on certain Good to Go Days without a park pass reservation. If a Passholder has an upcoming theme park reservation that becomes a good-to-go day, they will still be able to view their previous reservation in the My Plans section in My Disney Experience, but the reservation will be removed and no longer count against their maximum reservation hold.

  • Be sure to book a theme park reservation before your next visit to a Walt Disney World theme park.
  • To enter a theme park, each Passholder must have a theme park reservation in addition to valid admission. Theme park reservations are limited and are subject to availability and applicable pass blockout dates.
  • Passholders may visit a park after 2:00 PM without a theme park reservation—except when visiting Magic Kingdom park on Saturdays and Sundays. Pass blockout dates will continue to apply.
