Surprise change #1!
The parking fees have gone away at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. All hotel guests get to enjoy complimentary self-parking when staying at a Disney Resort hotel.
As of January 10, 2023, overnight self-parking will, once again, be offered complimentary parking to guests staying at Disney Resort hotels at Walt Disney World. This is a Disney difference so many of you have asked to bring back and they’re happy to reintroduce it to make your vacation a little easier and more affordable.
Surprise change #2!
Walt Disney World Annual Passholders: Park reservation requirements will be relaxed for visits after 2 p.m.*
Beginning in the next few months, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders will be able to visit the theme parks after 2 p.m. without needing a park reservation, except on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom Park. Pass blockout dates will continue to apply like they do today. While the theme park reservation system remains important to manage attendance in our parks, especially on busier days, Disney realizes Passholders enjoy more spontaneous visits and this change will make that possible.
Passholders will also receive access to Disney PhotoPass lenses and one complimentary Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories experience (age restrictions apply). Visit Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories and Disney PhotoPass Lenses for details, restrictions and other information.*
Disney will share a start date with Passholders soon for when these offerings will become available as well as information about a new offering that is planned where you can create and share short Disney-themed video slideshows with favorite photos from your theme park visits.
Surprise change #3!
Attraction photo downloads will be included with Disney Genie+ service!
Beginning in the next few months, guests purchasing Disney Genie+ service will also receive digital downloads of their Disney PhotoPass attraction photos taken in the park on the day of their purchase at no additional charge. An exact launch date will be announced at a later time. Disney PhotoPass terms and conditions and expiration policy apply.
All of these updates are specific to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
*All offerings are subject to change or cancellation without notice. Walt Disney World Annual Pass Terms and Conditions apply.
