After three days of testing at Disneyland Park, the new Disneyland Paris park reservation verification system will reportedly launch tomorrow at Walt Disney Studios Park, streamlining how guests enter.
New Automated Park Reservation Verification System Reportedly Launching Tomorrow
Reports indicate that guests will now simply scan their ticket once at the turnstiles to enter, no longer needing to first have their reservation verified on a mobile device by a physical Cast Member a few steps ahead of that entry scanner. If there is a park reservation linked to the ticket, the gate will open automatically. If a guest does not have a valid reservation, a red message will reportedly be displayed on the Cast Member’s screen. This should be considerably faster than the current process.
Disneyland Paris enacted the park reservation system in July 2020, when the parks reopened after their COVID-19 shutdown. In June 2021, Annual Passholders were restricted to holding only three park reservations at any given time. In June 2022, a waitlist was created for Annual Passholders who couldn’t get reservations on the day they wanted.
