We’ll start with the Theme Park Tickets and Select Hotel Guests segments. The Availability Calendar has open spots listed on Thursday, December 30, but only at EPCOT. December 31 has no availability. January 1, 2022, has spots open at both Disney’s Animal Kingdom and EPCOT, but both the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are full.

Theme Park Tickets and Select Hotel Guests

Things are just slightly better for Annual Passholders. Thursday, December 30 has open reservations at both EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. New Year’s Eve has no availability at any Theme Park. On January 1, 2022, the only Theme Park that does not have availability for Annual Passholders is the Magic Kingdom, the other three are open.

Remember, the open spots will most likely be gone soon, so if you plan to go make your reservations immediately.

Just because a Theme Park shows no availability on the Availability Calendar does not mean that spots won’t open up. With the latest surge of Coronavirus, many people are canceling their plans, and those reservations will then open up once again.

If you are able to get a Disney Park Pass Reservation but it isn’t for the Theme Park that you were hoping to visit, you can always Park Hop if it’s included on your ticket. Keep in mind that many others will have the same idea, so you should call the Park Hopping Hotline at 407-560-5000 before heading to a different Theme Park.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
