    I am an annual pass holder. I plan to go to Animal Kingdom with a reservation. After 2 Pm I gather I can park hop to Hollywood Studios correct? Do I need to make a reservation? Can I use the same genie+ for both parks?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Patrick! I'm so excited to chat with a fellow Pennsylvanian about the Most Magical Place on Earth! 

    Patrick, as an Annual Passholder myself, I appreciate this question and love that you're trying to experience as much Magic as possible by visiting two parks in one day! First, let's talk about park hopping. Once you have visited the first park where you hold a Disney Park Pass reservation, you can hop to your next destination after 2:00 pm withOUT a second (or even third) reservation. Patrick, please make sure to have your My Disney Experience Mobile App updated and check park hopping hours the day of your visit as it's possible hours could change earlier (or later) depending on capacity. 

    Now, I'm happy to share that if you purchase Disney Genie+ for the day, it will work in more than one park. So, in your example, you can select Lightning Lane attractions for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in the morning and then Lightning Lane attractions for Disney's Hollywood Studios in the afternoon. The price for Disney Genie+ is per day and can be used to fit your itinerary if park hopping. 

    Patrick, I hope this helps as you're planning ahead for your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Please come on back to planDisney if you have any additional questions. Like Aladdin's best friend, the Genie, we love to help make wishes come true!
