Walt Disney World is No Longer Selling Tickets for Thanksgiving Week

If you were hoping to spend Thanksgiving week at Walt Disney World, you might be out of luck. According to the official Walt Disney World website, they are no longer selling new tickets November 23rd through 26th.

Even if you already have an Annual Pass, there are no open reservations on November 23rd or 24th. There is limited availability for Annual Passholders on November 25th for EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. On November 26th, there is only availability for EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

This also goes along with the news that Walt Disney World recently put a pause on selling most new Annual Passes. The only Annual Pass that is still available is the Disney Pixie Dust Pass which is only available to Florida residents. 

Here’s what it says on the Walt Disney World website: New sales of select Annual Passes are currently paused.New sales of the Disney Pixie Dust Pass remain available for Florida Residents..Please check back here for the latest updates.


There is full availability the first couple weeks of December, so if you plan to visit Walt Disney World, you may have to wait a little while if you do not already have a spot or reservation. Keep checking, though, just in case someone lets their reservation go. Spots will most likely go extremely fast around Christmas, so if you see an opening Christmas week, grab it if you want to be there then.

No word yet of when Annual Pass sales will resume. With availability being hard to grab a reservation around the holidays, Disney decided to pause sales instead of making it harder for current Passholders to get reservations.


Walt Disney World had said all along that this was a possibility of pausing sales at some point. The Top Tier Pass at Disneyland, Dream Magic Key, is also paused.
