Following the Covid-19 pandemic and the extra health and safety rules needed as venues begin to reopen, Disney Resort has announced a change to its booking system in order to meet capacity limitations set by the Californian government.
1. Changes to regulations
In addition to extra safety regulations to ensure a safe visit, such as limiting group sizes, enforcing mandatory mask policies, adding contactless payment options, Disneyland is introducing ticket and reservation changes. Guests are now required to purchase both a ticket and theme park reservation for the same park on the same date before their visit. In order to making it simpler for visitors to do this, Disneyland has developed a system which allows them to book a theme park reservation at the same time that they purchase a ticket.

2. How it works
To both purchase a ticket and make a reservation, guests must visit Disneyland’s official website, where they can select the ticket and the number of days, choose the number of passes and pick a date and park for the theme park reservation. Visitors wishing to choose the Park Hopper option must to select the starting park for each day of their visit (subject to availability) and can only change over to the other parks after 1 p.m. each day. Visitors can also purchase the add-on option of parking vouchers in advance via the website. Guests who have already purchased their tickets can also link their passes to the park’s website or app and access the park reservation system to make sure their visit is scheduled properly, whilst visitors with multi-day tickets must make a separate park reservation for each day.
