Guide to the Disney Park Pass System

As we highlighted in our post on Disney reopening procedures, they are going to limit attendance in the parks for the remainder of 2020 and likely parts of 2021. To do this, they have built what is known as the Disney Park Pass System. It is a system that reserves your ability to enter the park. This post will serve as a guide to the Disney Park Pass System. We’ll cover how you use the system to make a reservation, tips, tricks, and some issues we experienced when booking our park passes.

Disney World Introduces New Disney Park Pass System to Reserve Disney World Park Access!

Well, the news cycle appears to be in high gear for Disney World’s reopening. Last night we got news bout Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Food & Wine Festival. Today Disney World introduced the new Disney Park Pass System. We’ve known for a while that Disney World would require guests to make a reservation for entry into a theme park. This is above and beyond buying your actual admission ticket. Now we have some more details. However, the system isn’t live quite yet. In this post, we’ll cover when you can start making reservations, what you should do before trying to reserve access and more.

It’s Been One Week…And Boy Has Disney World Dropped Lots of Reopening News!

I hope you enjoyed our Barenaked Ladies reference in the title. I think that song has lyrics that, in some way, reference the relationship of Disney World and its guests. Mostly the opening stanza. If you aren’t familiar with it, the song starts like this:
It’s been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side
and said I’m angry
Five days since you laughed at me saying
Get that together come back and see me

Maybe I’m reading too much into it. I do find it similar, though. I think Disney World fans are feeling a wide array of emotions about the park reopening now. Laughing and angry may be just two of them, but it probably covers the range of emotions.

Well, if yesterday’s news about the reopening of Walt Disney World wasn’t enough, Disney quietly dropped more news today. Unfortunately, much of what they let out is not going to sit well with pretty much anyone and create more anxiety and problems. Let’s go through what they announced in this post from Disney Parks Blog.

It has now been over six weeks since Disney World closed as the country shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, some positive signs are starting to emerge, which may lead to the re-opening of Disney World, along with other regular commercial activities. With that, we thought we would weigh in on how Disney World will be different when it re-opens.

Akershus Breakfast Review

One of the perks of dining at Epcot is the authenticity that you often find while eating in the various countries of World Showcase. Over in the Norway pavilion, you’ll discover Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, which is modeled after the Akershus Castle in Oslo, Norway. We stopped by to have breakfast at this Disney World favorite recently. Much like our other dining reviews, our Akershus breakfast review will cover all things, including the food, atmosphere, and princesses. We’ll document it all with pictures, of course.

Here in our Regal Eagle Smokehouse review we'll tell you about the adult and kid perspective on eating here.

Regal Eagle Smokehouse Review

In March of 2020, Disney World opened up a new counter service restaurant in the American Adventure pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase called the Regal Eagle Smokehouse. As you might guess from the name, the restaurant focuses on barbeque. What you may not guess is that Regal Eagle Smokehouse is “hosted” by Sam The Eagle from the Muppets. Here in our Regal Eagle Smokehouse review, we’ll tell you about our experience dining here, complete with our thoughts on the food, décor, and pictures of it all.
