TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Walt Disney World announced Monday that it is making changes to its reservation system and bringing back dining plans next year.
Guests who purchase a date-based ticket will no longer have to make a reservation starting Jan. 9, 2024.
Next year, the theme park will offer “good-to-go days” for annual pass holders and cast members. Both groups will be able to visit the park on select days without needing a park reservation.
Currently, annual pass holders do not need to have a reservation if they visit the theme parks after 2 p.m. except on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom.
The theme park also released good news for those interested in the park’s dining plan. Guests who purchase a vacation package will be able to add the dining package to their reservation starting Jan. 9, 2024.
Disney said guests will be able to choose from two options: Disney Quick Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan.
“Both plans will be a great value for families with young children with access to many spectacular food and beverage offerings across Walt Disney World,” the theme park said.
