Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, has confirmed that Disney’s park pass reservation system and virtual queue system are both here to stay. He shared this information during the J.P. Morgan Global Technology, Media, and Communications Conference today.

Chapek said both systems helped guests stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also stated that the park pass reservation system will remain in place even after the pandemic is over. We suspected as much since the park pass calendar extends into 2023 already.

Chapek also said that virtual queues will remain in place post-pandemic. Virtual queues are a controversial topic in the Disney fan world. You either love them or hate them. The virtual queue is like an intense form of FastPass. Guests have two times where they can try to get a spot in the virtual queue for select rides and attractions.

Disneyland announced today that their newest attraction, WEB SLINGERS: a Spider-Man Adventure will be utilizing the virtual queue. We expect more rides to start using the system as well.

  1. I like the park pass system, as I am a planner, but Disney should account for passholders to go whenever they want.

  2. Another example of how little is thought of the “Guaranteed Guests” (i.e. Annual Passholders and DVC members). Top brass only cares about the bottom line. They know they have us. The services and perks that have been reduced and/or disappeared entirely over the last several years are too numerous to mention and they’re using COVID as their convenient excuse. I can’t help but wonder, WWWD(What would Walt do)

  3. Annual Passholders here. Have tried on 5 different days to get into the Virtual Queque for Rise of the Resistance at precisely 7 a.m., with no luck yet! I was looking forward to the day when the virtual Queque would be ending! Not happy to read that it’s staying. I have no faith we’ll ever get to experience that attraction.

  4. The reservation system SUCKS! Especially for Passholders! We live close by and would sometimes just run over to the park when the wait times were low! It’s really not worth the money for us anymore! Plus sometimes we can’t get the same reservations as friends or visiting relatives out of state! Universal seems to be working fine without it!!!

  5. I don’t think this is fair for annual passholders because I like waking up on a Saturday or Sunday And decide to go to a park for a day and with the reservation system you can’t do that. I like to Park hop but I don’t like to wait tell 2

  7. Hi
    Please can someone explain the park pass & virtual queue systems as I am from the UK does the park pass now mean you can’t park hop also if we are on a 2 week vacation and want to visit different parks each day for 14 days is this possible as sometimes we used to decide to do MK in the morning then hope to epcote in the afternoon and HS in the evening but we also could change our minds on the day if the weather changed or something in our plans changed… is this still possible to do this type of thing
    Thanx Juls

  8. This is not good business model as I am spending so much money to go to Disney I might want to change my itinerary by the day and now you cannot.

    The magic continues to die a slow liberal death

  9. I like being spontaneous some days. If I have a morning fast pass then great but If I have an afternoon one we like to get up and see how we feel; where do we want to go? Yeah if I have to reserve my park in advance I see my next trip being my last, and I am only going to go on that trip because that is the trip my son picked for his last trip before he goes off to college… I am not a type A everything has to be planned and we need to stick to a schedule. What kind of vacation is that?????

  10. I can see the benefit of the park pass system but would like the passholders could have 4 or 5 reservation days at a time. We are out of state and would like to schedule each park during the stay.
