Disney has replenished the Disney Park Pass reservations at Walt Disney World for the peak Christmas week, December 20 to December 31 2021.

Before today, December 20, 21, 27 - 31 was unavailable for Resort and Ticket guests at all four Walt Disney World parks.

Today's update restores availability every day, at at least one park, either Disney's Animal Kingdom or EPCOT. The availability of at least one park on those days means that it also becomes possible to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios or Magic Kingdom via a park hop after 2pm.

I subscribed to their service partly in hopes that I could search for all of my potential ADRs but found out that it only allows two. However, they have more than enough other services to warrant purchasing the subscription. I understand why they limit it. It's just one of those little things that I wish was different. But you know what they say. You can wish in one hand and....

Disney routinely blocks IP addresses if you access/call their API endpoints/URLs excessively/routinely, so you need some type of rotating proxy (basically switch the IP you call from) to avoid getting blocked. Just of note, I pay about $5 a month for rotating 100 proxies, but that’s just for my own personal use/bots. Put that on a larger scale and can probably get costly, plus add in costs for running servers or serverless services, so it’s understandable why TP has such limit for a free service.

Yeah, you got to let it find you what you're looking for, grab it, and then reset it for your next wish. They can't do too many more since it is taxing on their server side and might annoy Disney if they investigate a significant bot "attack." BTW, I too subscribe when I use the service as a thank-you.

I found their expected wait time to be pretty accurate. Way better than Genie’s tip board.

I keep our subscription active regardless of whether we're planning a trip or not. They provide an excellent service and we've used them a ton over the years...they deserve to be rewarded for that and the subscription is very reasonably priced, so I let it roll.

When that free service resulted in a coveted reservation to 'Ohana immediately before a Halloween party, I bought a subscription. I thought it was only fair. Sites like that deserve to be supported.

TP is nice but it only allows me to "watch" for two ADRs. I wish it let me choose all of my desired ADRs.

TP very specifically doesn't charge for that 'service' since Disney would come down on them like a ton of bricks. You can use that service with a free registration to their site.

Not gonna lie, I’ve totally thought about it. But I’m pretty sure there’s other existing services out there that offer similar. Like I think TP offers one for dining reservations and such.

You could totally sell a subscription service and program a text to be sent to a list when slots open.

Hollywood Studios just opened up on Dec 20th and 21st. Just switched from AK on the 20th. This was the last opening I was looking out for, thanks to my bot lol

Just finishing up our week at WDW and the park pass system and the 2pm park hopping rule really affected how we usually do the parks. For instance, Tuesday and today we had lunch reservations at Epcot, but Epcot doesn’t open to resort guests until 10:30. So normally we would have rope dropped MK at 8:30, gotten a couple hours of low wait rides in, and then jumped on the monorail to Epcot. But couldn’t do that because I had to have park reservations at Epcot because of the dining reservations. So, we sat in our room watching TV, waiting for Epcot to open when we could’ve been in the parks😡

Interesting as it hasn't impacted hopping. We had HS this morning and hopped to MK for Treats and Seats this evening (IMHO the only way to keep out of the mosh pit these days)

Park Reservations for some dates in the second half of December have been replenished for Ticket/Resort guests. Before/After
