Disney's Contemporary Resort hotel seen beyond the palm trees from near the Magic KingdomStaying At A Disney Hotel Does Not Guarantee Park AdmissionHerb Leibacher·June 6, 2020Disney Resort Hotels Disney announced some time ago that you will need a reservation to get into the theme parks when they reopen in July. Now, Disney has announced that staying at a Disney Resort Hotel does not guarantee theme park admission. I suspect many people are interested in booking reservations at Disney hotels assuming that would guarantee admission, but that is not the case. Staying at a Disney Resort will not guarantee admission to the theme parks when they reopen. It could be that Disney is making this announcement to cover themselves in the event that the resorts are so full that the parks can’t handle the crowds. Surprised that staying at Disney Hotel doesn’t guarantee park admission?
