Anyone that has been following the reopening changes that have been implemented at Walt Disney World will know that one of the changes Disney made was to introduce a new theme park reservation system.
Disney’s park reservation system requires guests to prebook the park they wish to visit on any given day. Annual Passholders are able to book 3 park days at a time and Disney hotel guests are guaranteed entry into one park per day of their stay.
With the parks currently running at limited capacity the reservations can get booked up quickly, and as the reservation system currently only allows guests to prebook one park per day, this also removes the option for guests to park hop.
The park reservation system has allowed Disney to control capacity within their parks, a requirement of reopening during the current pandemic. But what happens after the pandemic, do things go back to the way they were or are some of the changes going to stick around?
In a recent interview with the Dow Report, Disney Chairman Josh D’Amaro spoke about new technologies such as park reservations, queue reservations and mobile food ordering, and goes on to say they are “here to stay”.
