Park pass reservations at the Disneyland Resort are completely booked up for this week and almost all of next. That was to be expected due to Spring Break. What isn’t expected, but has been happening, is ‘no shows’.

Magic Key holders have an easier time making park pass reservations than single ticket or multi-ticket guests. The issue Disney has been experiencing recently, though, is Magic Key holders not showing up for their reservations. As local guests, it is easier for them to make a reservation and then ‘no show’.

Disneyland to start penalizing 'No Show' Theme Park Reservations

No matter the reason for ‘no shows’, Disneyland is going to start cracking down on them. Magic Keyholders who are a ‘no show’ for 3 reservations in a 90-day window will not be able to make a new park reservation for 30 days.

‘No shows’ affect a Disney Park’s overall numbers and take a spot that could’ve gone to a guest willing and ready to visit.

It seems that park pass reservations will remain in place at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World for the foreseeable future. If you are a Magic Key holder, be sure to keep your reservations or cancel them to avoid being penalized.

  1. This isn’t news. It has been the policy since they sold the magic keys back in August. This article is false advertising.
