It is no secret that Disney parks have been requiring park reservations since reopening in 2020, and that system is not going anywhere anytime soon. However, many Walt Disney World Annual Passholders and Disneyland Magic Key holders know that a pass does not guarantee park reservations. In order to discourage guests from hoarding these coveted reservations, Disney will now enforce a “no show” policy for park reservations.
In the past guests who have a park reservation but do not show up have never faced a penalty, but that is about to change. Disney has made it clear that the Disneyland park reservation system will now impact guests who frequently no show on their reservations. Disney released the following statement detailing the new policy:
The “no show” policy was likely put in place due to the current high demand in Disneyland Resort causing many days to be unavailable to Magic Key Holders.
Although Walt Disney World is also experiencing higher demand it does not seem that they will be enforcing the same “no show” policy at this time. The Walt Disney World website currently does not have any “no show” policy detailed out on their website, but that may change at any time.
