It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through 2021! It has been a year of reopenings and reimagining at Walt Disney World, and we’re thrilled with Disney’s progress after pulling through a year like 2020. If you’re making holiday plans to visit Walt Disney World, you’re not alone! Disney recently announced 2021 holiday experiences are returning to all four parks, as well as Disney Springs. While Disney will not offer Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom this year, they are offering a new experience called “Disney Very Merriest After Hours”. Apparently all the holiday events are intriguing Disney fans, as more and more guests are making plans to enjoy the holiday magic that surrounds the parks… especially Magic Kingdom!
As you likely know by now, Walt Disney World requires guests make a Park Pass reservation prior to visiting one of their four theme parks. Gone are the days of showing up at your park of choice. Instead, you’ll need a park reservations with your valid ticket to gain access.
When looking over the Walt Disney World Theme Park Reservation calendar, we’ve noticed Christmas Day (December 25, 2021) is currently at capacity for most Disney guests. In the screenshots below, you’ll notice the popular park is currently unavailable for Theme Park Ticket guests and Select Resort Hotels guests:
Thankfully, the other three Walt Disney World parks currently remain open for theme park ticket holders and resort guests. If you’re a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder and want to visit Magic Kingdom on Christmas Day – you’re in luck! You’ll see in the screenshot below, Park Passes are still available for December 25 for Annual Passholders:
Take note! As Walt Disney World continues to increase capacity, we’re seeing more and more park pass calendar dates refilled. If you aren’t an Annual Passholder and want to visit Magic Kingdom on December 25, we recommend checking the Theme Park Reservation calendar frequently to see if Disney opens any more slots. In the meantime, be sure to snag one of the other theme parks for December 25 before they too fill. Happy halfway to Christmas, Disney fans!
