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.
