ORLANDO, Fla. (WESH) — Disney will be allowing some passholders into two of their parks for a special preview ahead of reopening to the public.

Passholders were sent an email on Monday to register for the event, which is now full. The event, which was open to every tier of passholder, gave the option of visiting Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom on July 9 or 10.

Capacity to the event was limited and reservations were given on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Disney will have temperature checks at select locations.

Disney will hold a phased reopening for the public starting with Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11. Hollywood Studios and Epcot will open to guests on July 15.

Guests will need a reservation to visit the theme parks. All reservations for the phased reopening days have been booked.
