We’ve been getting a ton of Disney news and updates, courtesy of the 2022 Quarter 3 Earnings Call.
We’ve gotten updates on Disney+ subscriber numbers, information for Disney+ Basic (with ads) and Premium (no ads), and general details regarding the company’s revenue. Along with all of those big updates, Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, also shared some new thoughts regarding the Disney Park Reservation System.
On the Q3 Earnings Call, Bob Chapek discussed the Park Pass Reservation System. Park pass reservations are required for guests to receive access to the Disney parks, along with a valid ticket, Annual Pass, or Magic Key Pass.
This has been a controversial addition in Disney parks, as the reservation calendar can fill up, blocking guests out of the parks. But, if Disney CEO Bob Chapek’s statements are any indication, this system likely isn’t going away anytime soon.
During the earnings call, Chapek shared that the reservation system provides Disney with the ability to change whatever factors they need regarding ticket packaging. They’ve also found that the reservation system does a great job at spreading out demand and providing a better experience for guests by limiting park capacity.
Chapek even noted that they see nothing in the future indicating anything to the contrary of what they’ve seen so far in terms of demand. And he shared that if they see some kind of spikiness, they can smooth that out now in a way they couldn’t before.
So it looks like Disney likely won’t be removing the reservation system anytime soon. For more information from the Q3 Earnings Call, check out the latest subscriber numbers for Disney+.
