Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!

We thought we would post the upcoming blockout dates for using your Disney guest passes for all four WDW theme parks for the next few months in case family and friends are planning a visit to Orlando to see you!

New official link for cast members to check on blockout dates at all Disney Parks: https://blockoutdates.disney.com/

We love Blizzard Beach! ❤

Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon:  Free Admission for Cast Members!

*****Blizzard Beach is Closed September 8th!*****

Update:  Blizzard Beach Will Have a Longer Than Usual Refurbishment Closure

Blizzard Beach closed for refurbishment beginning on September 8, 2019 and not reopen until January 2020.

Each of Disney’s water parks is refurbished annually, typically between October to March. The refurbishment schedule is staggered so guests can enjoy at least one water park experience year-round.

This year, additional refurbishment work and enhancements to Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park will result in a longer annual downtime.

When it reopens in January, Typhoon Lagoon will close the next day for its refurbishment, January – March 2020.

Comments about the Disney Water Parks: Cast members can get into the Disney water parks for free ($69 value).  You can also buy 1/2 price tickets ($34.50) for family and friends at the gate. Cast members must be present with their guests.

Please note that the water parks close when the temperature falls below 65 degrees (the water is not heated) or if thunderstorms/lightning are nearby.

Car parking is now $25 a day.

Parking at all the theme parks is now $25/day. 

Remember, cast members get free parking. Just show your ID badge at the gate.

They are now more consistently checking Annual Pass Holders IDs for free parking at the entrance gate.  And the guards at the resorts are questioning all guests if they have a resort or dining reservation at the resort before allowing guests to park.

You can see how the blockout dates line up with this 2019 crowd forecast:

We actually think the 2nd week in December is good!

    We are using chip n dale park hopper passes with a family member. This is a big trip for our family as our son has autism. We were told by our family member, who is a cast member, that the chip n dale passes do NOT work for fast passes. Is that true?

    Do you still have a copy of the cast Block-out dates from last July? I’m trying to plan a trip for the last weekend in July, and though I know it’s not guaranteed, I’m hoping for some inkling of whether I should be worried about that weekend…I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask!
