    Are annual pirate pass members able to park hop?

    Hi Susan and welcome to planDisney!

    I just love being a Florida resident and a Walt Disney World Passholder!  Living so close to the theme parks gives us the flexibility to visit as often as possible and we love popping over for a day trip, weekend or a long stay.  There are so many perks that come with having an annual pass like discounts on merchandise, select Disney dining and Disney Resort hotel stays, so we like to take advantage of everything we can.

    All Walt Disney World annual passes include park hopping privileges and that includes the Florida resident Disney Pirate Pass.  Currently, park hopping is allowed after 2:00 PM, subject to park availability.  You can check the park hopping status on the My Disney Experience Mobile App on the homepage when you view park hours.  As of recently, Passholders do not need to make a theme park reservation if they are visiting their first park after 2:00 PM, except for Magic Kingdom on Saturdays and Sundays. 

    I see that your next visit is coming up in less than a month.  How exciting!  I love seeing Main Street U.S.A. decorated for fall and the shopaholic in me can't wait to get my hands on some Halloween themed merchandise.  The special Halloween and fall treats that are around the parks and Resort hotels look so delicious like the Maleficent Petit Cake at Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs or the Witches Cold Brew at Cheshire Cafe in Magic Kingdom Park.  I'm really looking forward to my visit coming up!

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
