Disney World is doing away with one requirement. Planning a trip to Disney World can be a lot. So many factors go into planning a Disney vacation, like where you’ll stay and how you’ll get there. Luckily, Disney has so many options once you’re on the property. If you’re staying in a Disney Resort, there is free transportation to the Parks, lifting some of the load of your planning. Additionally, staying in a Disney Resort has plenty of perks that make your vacation more magical.
When choosing your trip, Disney currently requires a Park reservation in advance. Depending on the date and day, the price can fluctuate. With that required Park reservation comes some pressure to ensure you are registered and ready to go prior to entering the Park. Now, Disney is changing that and making it easier to visit the Parks.
Prior to the covid-19 pandemic, many rules that are in play were not. This rule being one of them is now changing for the better.

Disney World Cuts Park Reservations
Guests booked to visit Disney World are notified of their newest change. Beginning January 9, 2024, Guests will no longer have to book reservations for the Park they would like to attend. Originally, Geusts would have to book for all four Parks; Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios. As Disney Dining pointed out, “However, non-dated Park ticket events may still require a Park Reservation in order to keep track of attendance.
Theme Park reporter Scott Gustin included the announcement from Disney stating, “We wanted to let you know that a theme Park reservation is no longer required to enter the theme parks with this ticket. This will not impact your ability to get into the theme parks as planned during your visit, and there is no action required on your part.”
The new change will be removed from the “My Plan” section of the Disney app. Furthermore, Guests can now book their trip with more confidence and one less box to check off their Disney vacation checklist.
