Walt Disney World Outlines Details of 'Good to Go' Days wdw-good-to-go-days-launch

Walt Disney World has just announced that available reservation dates for the new ‘Good to Go’ days will be announced for Annual Passholders on January 11, 2024. Along with details on reservations, additional details have been released regarding how this will all work when Park Pass Reservations are no longer required for select ticket holders.

Good-To-Go Days Calendar Coming Jan. 11

In 2024, resolve to be more spontaneous with good-to-go days for Annual Passholders! As Passholders prepare for their visits next year, we wanted to share more about how good-to-go days will work:

On good-to-go days, Annual Passholders may enter the theme parks without needing a reservation (blockout dates will continue to apply like they do today).

The theme park reservation calendar, Annual Passholder admissions calendar and My Disney Experience app will show days that are good-to-go. The first good-to-go days will be added to the calendars starting Jan. 11, 2024.

Good-to-go days will be added periodically and may be released days or weeks in advance. With the return of all-day Park Hopper access, Passholders can enter another Walt Disney World theme park any time during park hours. Annual Passholders may also continue to visit without a park reservation after 2 p.m. unless visiting Magic Kingdom Park on a Saturday or Sunday (blockout dates continue to apply).

And beginning Jan. 9…

All-Day Park Hopper Access is Coming Back

Have a ticket with Park Hopper benefits or an Annual Pass? If so, don’t forget you may visit another theme park ANY TIME OF DAY during park hours (subject to capacity limitations). Start your morning watching the sun rise over the savannah at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, then head on over to EPCOT to lunch around the world.

Theme Park Reservation Updates

Guests who purchase date-based tickets, the standard Disney theme park tickets, no longer need to make theme park reservations!

Virtual Queue

Starting January 9, Guests will be able to join one attraction virtual queue at any theme park where they have valid admission. Guests may hold one attraction virtual queue at a time. Like today: 

  • Select admission types may also require a theme park reservation to join a virtual queue.
  • Guests do not need to be inside a theme park to request to join the virtual queue at 7:00 AM.
  • Guests must be inside the theme park to request to join the virtual queue at 1:00 PM.

Dining Plans Return

The convenience and peace of mind of pre-paying for meals and snacks is right around the corner as Disney Resort hotel guests may once again purchase vacation packages with dining plans. You can choose from two popular options: Packages that include either the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan. Both plans are a great value for families with young children!

What’s New with Dining Plans

For all the Disney foodies out there, dining reservations are open for booking for guests staying at Disney Resort hotels who purchase a vacation package with a Disney Dining Plan for arrivals in January through early February! You can book dining up to 60 days in advance, and as a Disney Resort hotel guest, you may book dining for your entire length of stay (up to 10 days).

Pro tip: We recently made it easier to check availability so you can now see every available reservation for your selected location and date!

Here are some additional tips to help you get the most out of your dining plan:

  • You may redeem meals and snacks at any time during your stay.
  • You can see how many meals and snacks you have remaining in the My Disney Experience app. And don’t forget, using mobile order service in the app makes it easy to find quick and nearby dining options using your dining plan!

Stay tuned as we approach the end of the year as more new details are headed our way and we’ll be sure to share the news as we receive it!
