Pass blockout dates will continue to apply.

Parking for Disney World hotel guests

Beginning the evening of January 10, overnight self-parking will once again be offered complimentary to guests staying at Disney World Resort hotels.

Disney Resort hotel guests also continue to receive complimentary standard parking at Disney World theme parks.

Another Genie+ update

In the next few months, Disney World guests purchasing Disney Genie+ service will also receive digital downloads of their Disney PhotoPass attraction photos, taken in the park on the day of their purchase, at no additional charge.

An exact launch date will be announced at a later time.
