Member Asia Trail/Panda Passes are reserved quickly. Additional passes are released on a rolling basis up to 30 days in advance, so please check back often throughout the summer. Remember to check the next calendar month for available passes.
Asia Trail/Panda Passes are also available for reservation on-site at the Zoo on the day of your visit. Learn more about reserving passes on-site here. Remember, if you didn't make a Panda Pass reservation online, you'll need to reserve entry passes or a parking pass for your group.
In order to keep our visitors, staff and animals safe, capacity limits have been put into place for the David M. Rubenstein Family Giant Panda Habitat. The Smithsonian is constantly re-evaluating the safe number of visitors to the Zoo, and we hope to be able to increase capacity as the summer progresses. All Zoo visitors, including members, must reserve a FREE timed Asia Trail/Panda Pass to visit the giant panda exhibit. This summer, Smithsonian National Zoo Members have access to reserve Asia Trail/Panda Passes online in advance of their visit.
