Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Josh D’Amaro says that it could be some time before we see certain aspects Disneyland’s newly adopted Park Reservation system go away.

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, D’Amaro said that “I don’t want to say we are going to go back to the way it was…I want to be really smart in the way we do this.”

According to the article, Disneyland is poised to keep “in place a reservation system that was adopted to manage visitor numbers under the state-imposed capacity limits and the continued use of a virtual queuing system that was designed to give all parkgoers a shot at visiting the most popular attractions.”

There were major crowds the first day out-of-state guests were allowed to visit Disneyland.

Right now, valid theme park admission as well as a confirmed park reservation about both required if a guest wishes to visit either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. Park Pass Reservations are also currently required at Disney World.


While there are no additional details as to exactly how long the reservation system will remain in place, the article indicates that it could stick around for a while. It also sounds like Disneyland intends to keep its virtual queue system around, like what is currently used on Rise of the Resistance and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.
