Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Walt Disney World halted all ticket sales earlier this year while they were putting together a reopening plan. However, now that we're only a few days away from the public reopening of the theme parks, Walt Disney World has announced that as of today, theme park tickets are back on sale for the rest of 2020. However, there are some new restrictions and things guests should probably know before breaking out their credit cards...
1. Add-ons are still unavailable
Because Walt Disney World theme parks are still reopening with a lot of restrictions in place, popular add-ons such as park hopper, Minnie Vans airport shuttle service, and the Disney Dining Plan are not available at this time. In addition, all paid FastPass+ add-ons will not be available as FastPass+ service is suspended until further notice.
2. You can purchase standalone tickets or packages with tickets
If you are looking to purchase more than just theme park tickets, starting today you can also begin purchasing a new 2020 vacation package, which will allow guests to book tickets for 2 to 7 days in length alongside their hotel stays. And speaking of hotel stays, though most Walt Disney World hotels are open right now, the following will be reopening later this year on the following dates:
- July 29 – Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
- Aug. 12 – Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
- Aug. 24 – Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts
- Sept. 21 – Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Oct. 1 – Disney’s BoardWalk Resort
- Oct. 14 – Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
