Guests are reporting that their Disney World Fastpasses have gone missing and that they are unable to make Advanced Dining Reservations from the My Disney Experience app and the Disney World website for July.
These changes might mean that Disney World is planning on opening the theme parks without advanced dining reservations or fastpasses. Disney shared the news yesterday that they are moving over to a new theme park reservation system and with Disney World operating on limited attendance and shorter hours so there may not be any need for Fastpasses or ADRs.
Here is the official word from the news we shared yesterday.
This phased reopening will demonstrate a deliberate approach, with limits on attendance and controlled guest density that aligns with guidance on physical distancing. That means certain experiences we know draw large group gatherings – such as parades and nighttime spectaculars – will return at a later date. In addition, “high-touch” experiences such as makeover opportunities, playgrounds and character meet and greets will remain temporarily unavailable, but characters will still be in our parks to entertain and delight our guests.
Because theme park capacity will be significantly limited as we welcome guests back to the magic, we will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that will require all guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. At this time, we are temporarily pausing new ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel reservations so we can focus on guests with existing tickets and reservations (Disney Vacation Club members can still make new reservations). Existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders will be able to make reservation requests in phases before new tickets are sold; we’ll be reaching out to these guests soon to provide additional details. We will resume new ticket sales and hotel reservations after that period of time. Theme park reservations will be limited due to attendance limitations and will be subject to availability. More details about this new reservation system will be available soon.
This could possibly be a glitch with the Disney World website or a hint at the changes coming to the Disney World theme parks in the coming months…
