Walt Disney World to Offer Real-time Information for Park Guests this Easter

Easter is one of Walt Disney World’s busiest times. Throughout the resort, there are phased closures for each of the parks as guests make their way for a day of fun.

Phased closing works in the following ways:
Phase 1
Guests owning a ‘Magic Your Way’ base tickets, or a ‘1-Day 1-Park Ticket’, Guests without an admission ticket, and Cast Members using Main Gate & Silver Passes will be turned around at the parking lot booths.

Phase 2
Admission is limited to:
* Disney Resort Guests (including the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, and guests arriving by bus
from the Hotel Plaza Boulevard hotels)
* Annual and Premium Annual Passholders
* Guests with Hopper tickets coming from another Disney park (excluding water parks)
* Guests re-entering the park from earlier in the day
* Guests with dining reservations at the park they are entering
* Magic Kingdom Guests with reservations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or The Pirates League
* Guests using Walt Disney World Resort Transportation will be admitted.

Phase 3
Admission is limited to:
* Disney Resort Guests (including the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, and guests arriving by bus
from the Hotel Plaza Boulevard hotels)
* Annual and Premium Annual Passholders
* Guests with dining reservations at the park they are trying to enter
* Magic Kingdom Guests with reservations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or The Pirates League

Phase 4
Closed to all guests no matter what ticket.

Previously, guests have been unable to find out at what level a park is at but Disney are going to be helping guests get that information easier this year with the availability of real-time information on park closures.

Beginning April 17 2011, information will be posted to a new twitter account @TodayAtWDW along with the existing Walt Disney World Facebook page.. For those guests in the parks that may be from the UK or do not have a data plan on their phones, a text message service number, which will be published in the times guide, will also provide exactly the same information.
