Select Disneyland Guests May Be Penalized if They Don’t Show Up for Their Park Reservations

Ever since the Disney parks reopened in the U.S., they’ve been operating on a reservation system.

Disney California Adventure

The system was added in an effort to help manage theme park capacity, and guests are required to make reservations for the park that they want to visit in advance of their trip. But what happens if you make a reservation and you’re a no-show? Well, there may now be some penalties for select guests!

According to the Orange County Register, Disneyland Resort has begun enforcing its no-show policy for Magic Key holders (Annual Passholders). Previously, there was a 6-month grace period on this policy wherein it wasn’t enforced.


So what happens now? Well now, Magic Key holders who don’t show up for three reservations within a 90-day period are barred from making any new reservations for 30 days after the third no-show. If you want to avoid the no-show penalty, you can — as long as you cancel your reservation by 11:59PM on the day before.

Disneyland Park

Current Magic Key holders will start at zero no-shows this week with no penalties for past infractions. Currently, this rule is only in effect at Disneyland Resort and not at Disney World, but we’ll keep you updated if that changes.

  1. This is more Disney greed! When you hold a spot then don’t show the park loses money. They could have jammed another family into the massive crowds and lines they have during slow season.
