Today’s announcements of Walt Disney World’s phased reopening (beginning July 11 with Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom and July 15 for EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios), comes with a load of plans and details that have been unveiled to make this reopening a successful one. One announcement which is not so popular to many guests, but according to Disney is a needed step to limit park capacity, is pausing new ticket sales and Disney Resort reservations.

According to Disney’s most recent announcement regarding plans for reopening, they’ve included:

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.
