    hi do i have to book the 2nd park to park hop from 2pm? Thanks

    Hi again, Julie! It's great to hear from you. Let's get your question answered!

    Until January 9, 2024, all Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort need to make Theme Park Reservations. You only need to make Theme Park Reservations for the first park that you are planning to visit each day. Then, starting at 2 p.m., you can begin to hop to your next park as long as your ticket has the Park Hopper Option. Just keep in mind that you must tap into your first park of the day in order to go to another park. If you skip the park for which you made your Theme Park Reservation and go straight to a different park after 2 p.m., you will not be able to enter.

    While I love to take my time and explore each park, it's also nice to hop from park to park to see everything I want to see. The Walt Disney World Resort is quite large and it's difficult to do everything, but the Park Hopper Option gives you a lot more flexibility. If you want to be digitized onto the Grid on TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise in Magic Kingdom Park in the morning and then help the Guardians of the Galaxy on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT in the afternoon, you can! While the most I've ever visited is 2 parks in a day, there are people who tackle all four! Now that's commitment!

    Julie, don't forget that the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is taking place from November 24, 2023, to December 30, 2023, and it has one of the most beloved entertainment offerings, the Candlelight Processional. Plus, there are the Holiday Kitchens with some mouth-watering options. Don't miss it!

    If you have any other questions, please reach out. We're always here!

    Don't forget that the three Ms are Mickey, Merry, and Magic,
