BREAKING: Walt Disney World Resort 2020 Theme Park Ticket Sales and Disney Resort Hotel Bookings Resuming Tomorrow, July 9

Disney has just confirmed that ticket sales and resort bookings for 2020 will resume tomorrow, July 9.

As you may have guessed, a virtual queue will be in place for ticket sales and resort bookings, and a set time has not been established for when these reservations go live, with hotel bookings “released at different times throughout the day.” As a reminder, here’s an overview of official resort reopening dates, in case you’re planning a trip sooner than later:

Booking systems will be unavailable overnight, beginning at approximately midnight (ET) this evening. When systems come back online in the morning, you’ll be able to purchase new tickets and plan future visits throughout this year with the Disney Park Pass system. When adding theme park tickets to a new 2020 package, you’ll now have the option of choosing tickets for 2 to 7 days in length. Certain ticket and package options, such as the Park Hopper option, Minnie Van Airport Service and Disney Dining Plan packages, are currently unavailable.

You can read the full announcement from Disney Parks below:

In just a few more days, we’ll begin welcoming the first guests back to the theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort, starting July 11 with Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and followed July 15 by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We’re continuing to prepare for these openings in a measured and deliberate way, implementing health and safety measures with cast members and guests in mind.

As you may recall, earlier we had temporarily paused 2020 ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel bookings so we could focus on helping existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders plan their visits with the new Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system. We are glad to share that beginning tomorrow, July 9, we will resume ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel bookings for 2020. Guests will soon be able to purchase new tickets and plan future visits throughout this year with the Disney Park Pass system, which we are using to help manage attendance during this reopening period. 

For those looking to make their plans right away, please note that tickets and Disney Resort hotel bookings may be released at different times throughout the day tomorrow. In addition, we will use virtual waiting rooms as needed to manage the high volume of guests looking to plan their visits.

All guests with valid admission are required to make a reservation in advance for each park entry, so be sure to check the park reservation availability calendar before purchasing any new tickets and then go directly to after your purchase to make your park reservations. Reservations are limited and subject to availability. Please note that, during this phased reopening, some tickets, ticket options and Disney Resort hotels are unavailable, but there are still a variety of options to choose from.
