Magic Kingdom reaches capacity for key dates in early April at Walt Disney World

23 days ago in "Magic Kingdom"

Posted: Tuesday March 7, 2023 6:41am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

According to the Disney Park Pass reservation availability calendar, Magic Kingdom is now at capacity on April 3 and 4 2023 for Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests and regular ticket holders.

April 3 is also at capacity for Annual Passholders, although there is still availability for April 4.

Fan-favorite firework show 'Happily Ever After' returns to Magic Kingdom on April 3, followed by the official opening of TRON Lightcycle Run on April 4.

Although Magic Kingdom is not currently accepting new reservations, there is availability at the other parks, so park hopping to Magic Kingdom after 2pm is still an option.

Agreed with the above. Other than a holiday week/weekend there should be 0 issues even one month out.

I don’t book park reservations until right before the 60 day window and have never had a problem.

March and April is spring break, which will impact availability. August should not as much of an issue, and I would think you will be fine in June.

We are off to Disney from Aug 5th. We don't get our park tickets until early June. Based on last year, how soon is it likely that the reservations for MK will be full before we get the tickets. Should we be fine with a 2 month window to book up for August 5th onwards. Just noticed it's 10 days into March and April weekend is booked up...that's 1 month.

Hotel rates and date-based pricing does more for spreading crowds out than reservations.

I really hope they keep it for Christmas/New Years. That time of year is much better now with reservations, they let way too many people in under the phased system. Agreed that it doesn’t really matter the rest of the year.

So, on the 3rd and 4th the MK will only be SUPER MOBBED and not MEGA MOBBED.

But they HAD been….because I had been checking and couldn’t get an AP reservation. This whole system needs to go away. With regular park tickets being dated, they can get a general idea. Go back to the old Phasing system. It worked fine for decades. Or keep it for the historically busy days like Christmas and New Years. But trash it the rest of the year. The sad thing is I haven’t even been trying to get to the MK on the 4th for Tron. Lol!

Sounds like they still (correctly) fear the legal repercussions that await them if they prioritize day guest reservations over AP reservations.

Interesting that resort guests and day guests have no availability, but APs do. Had been the opposite for quite a while. I know because I’ve been trying to get the 4th and haven’t been able to until a few minutes ago.

March isnt the only month for spring break and there's also Easter weekend April 7-10th which is showing up as being busy with MK park passes limited.

According to the Ticket/Resort Guest Park Pass Reservation calendar, April 3 and 4 at Magic Kingdom are currently unavailable for new reservations.

March, aka Spring Break, has need to increase attendance. Folks I think the resort may be seeing a bit of a downturn.

Disney has added quite a few bonus reservations for Annual Passholders through March 10th. I'm unable to see March 6, but there may be additional ones there. March 2 - EPCOT and Hollywood Studios March 3 - EPCOT and Animal Kingdom March 4 - EPCOT and Animal Kingdom March 5 - EPCOT and Hollywood Studios March 7 - EPCOT and Magic Kingdom March 8 - EPCOT and Hollywood Studios March 9 - EPCOT and Animal Kingdom March 10 - EPCOT and Animal Kingdom
