The anonymous couple had traveled from Switzerland to Orlando. Upon arrival at the Transportation & Ticket Center, they attempted to purchase theme park tickets and were turned away. They crafted a sign reading “Looking for tickets and reservations” on a sheet of cardboard and initially stood outside the Magic Kingdom entrance, hoping to beseech other guests to assist them. Disney security Cast Members forced them to retreat to the parking lot outside the TTC.

Reportedly, security later approached them again and walked them back to the TTC ticket booths, where they were allowed to buy tickets.

Universal had offered to give the couple free tickets to Universal Orlando Resort.

Since the Walt Disney World theme parks reopened in summer 2020 after the unprecedented extended closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, guests have been required to obtain a ticket and a separate park pass reservation through an online system. Regularly ticketed guests, resort hotel guests, and Annual Passholders all have separate reservation availability. The reservation must be tied to an admission ticket, or guests will not be allowed to enter the park.

The capacity limitations enforced on Walt Disney World due to the pandemic have been removed, but executives, including CEO Bob Chapek and Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro, have stated that the reservation system is here to stay. Chapek cited the system as “the backbone” of operations.

  1. It’s nice to know that they manage to make uo for the mistake. I do think that you could’ve brought up what I said about how they hope to end it soon but this proves that like theh say, it’s the people who make the magic.

  2. It is about time you did something right maybe you could keep the trend going by bringing back things that Walt wanted and removing something that he said that he never wanted in Disneyland which would carry over to WDW!

  3. Just wanted to feedback, that trying to book tickets for WDW from outside the USA is tricky. In Europe we can only buy 7 or 14 day tickets – not single days.
    Even worse is trying to make a reservation for an experience- for example to Savi’s Workshop. Disney simply block access to the booking page to anyone without a European Internet address.
    I use a VPN to get around both problems, but most people wouldn’t have the first idea about doing that.

  4. Wow free universal studios tickets too, after begging even though your supposed to purchase your tickets now a days online. Guess when I get down to Orlando after saving for 6 years and purchasing my family’s tickets ONLINE. Guess I’ll resort to begging for a first class suite at one of there most fanciest resorts. What a joke this world has become, where we allow this BS to happen every day. You have kids out there that have never or not able to go to Disney, but your willing to give to grown ass adults two free tickets to universal one of the most expensive parks in the entire park. That’s pathetic.
