Why do guests need a reservation to visit the park?

In order to manage capacity, maintain physical distancing and to help ensure a safe and fun experience at the park, all guests are required to make a reservation prior to visiting.

How does the reservation process work?

To make a reservation, you must have a ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass. 
 
If you do not already have a ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass, you must purchase one before making a reservation. You will be prompted to make a reservation during the process of purchasing a ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass.

  •  Guests can purchase and make a reservation for same-day tickets if there is inventory available
  •  Single-day tickets are date specific, so your reservation to visit is included automatically when you choose the date of your ticket
  •  Guests can make a reservation on the same day of a planned visit if there is inventory available

 

 

If you have an existing ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass, you must make a reservation prior to visiting the park. We have reserved daily capacity for our valued Pass Members and Fun Card holders. Guests can make a reservation on the same day of a planned visit if there is inventory available. To make a reservation if you have an existing ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass: 

 

 

  1. 1. Click here or go to the site homepage and click the "Reserve Now" button
  2. 2. Identify yourself as either a ticket, Fun Card, or Annual Pass holder
  3. 3. Select the date you would like to visit
  4. 4. Enter your ticket, Fun Card, or Annual Pass barcode number and email address to confirm your reservation

 

 

Once you receive your reservation confirmation via email, you must bring that confirmation along with your single-day ticket, Fun Card, or Annual Pass to enter the park.

 

Do I need reservations for anything else other than my ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass?

Certain premium experiences, such as cabana rentals, require reservations in order to maintain physical distancing and and to help ensure a safe and fun environment during your visit. When booking a premium experience, you may be prompted to select a date and time to reserve your spot. 

 

Park reservations are required and should be created prior to booking a date-specific premium experience.

    When you select the quantity of tickets you want to purchase, you will be prompted to select your date of visit. Once your transaction is complete, your single-day ticket will be date-specific.

    I am going to buy a Fun Card or an Annual Pass. Do I need to reserve my visit date?

    Yes, once you purchase your Fun Card or Annual Pass and your transaction is complete, you will be prompted to return back into the reservation system to reserve your visit date.

    I want to purchase a multi-day/multi-park ticket. What do I need to do to reserve my day?

    Reservations are required for multi-day/multi-park tickets. You can visit one park per day and must make reservations for each day and each park separately.

    Teacher Card, Friends and Family Pass, and Preschool Card holders will make reservations under the Fun Card category on the reservation page.

    I purchased tickets as part of an official vacation package. Do I need to make reservations?

    Guests that have already purchased an Official Vacation Package through our website, do NOT have to make additional reservations for the parks purchased. The guest can simply use their Resort Guest lanyard along with the admission ticket and proceed directly to the turnstiles.

    What happens if I show up at the park without a reservation?

    We strongly discourage guests from visiting the park unless they have a reservation. Guests without reservations will only be permitted to enter if capacity is available, and admission is not guaranteed. 

    Is there an extra charge for using the reservation system?

    There is no charge for using the reservation system. The reservation system is a tool we have introduced to help manage capacity so that guests can enjoy a safe and fun experience while maintaining physical distancing. 

    Can reservations be transferred from one guest to another?

    No. Reservations can be rescheduled, but not transferred to other guests who are not included on the original reservation.

    What happens if I don't show up for my reservation?

    Single-day and multi-day tickets are non-refundable, but reservations can be rescheduled prior to the original visitation date. Pass Members who know they will be unable to use their reservation are asked to reschedule or cancel their visit as early as possible by clicking here. This allows us to make space available to other guests.

    If a day is completely booked, will there be a waitlist?

    There is not a waitlist, however guests should continue to check the reservation site, as inventory may change.

    I have an experience booked (dining, animal interactions). Do I still need a reservation for park entry?

    Yes, all guests need a reservation for entry to the park.

    I am a Pass Member and want to visit another park at a discounted rate. How do I get a reservation and ticket?

    Once a guest’s ticket is purchased in the Pass Member portal, visit the reservation page for that park to complete the reservation process.

    I am a Pass Member and the day I would like to visit is filled up, will additional inventory be added?

    Inventory will be closely monitored and adjusted based on demand and available capacity. We invite guests to check back frequently as inventory will be adjusted on a daily basis.

    I have a multi-park ticket/Annual Pass, can I visit two parks in the same day?

    In order to allow as many guests as possible to experience the park, we are currently not allowing guests to reserve a visit to two parks on the same day.
