    Can you take a bus from one park to another, or do you have to ride a bus to a resort first, and then ride to another park?

    Hello there, Donna. Welcome to planDisney

    I see that you have a trip planned to the Most Magical Place on Earth in just a few short weeks. I think there is no better way to start off a new year than that. I bet you are getting so excited! 

    Donna, right now, Walt Disney World is providing complimentary park-to-park bus transportation during the hours of park hopping. Park hopping now begins at 2:00 p.m. and lasts until each park closes in the evenings.

    Park hopping looks a little bit different than it did before. If you'd like to park hop during your trip, Donna, you'll need to be sure you have valid theme park admission with the park hopper option. Once those tickets are linked to your MyDisneyExperience account, you'll also need to make park pass reservations. Park pass reservations are like a virtual placeholder in line at the theme park you'd like to visit. You'll need a park pass reservation for each day you'd like to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. On the day of, you'll need to scan in and visit the theme park with the park pass reservations first before continuing on to other theme parks later in the day. This sort of "activates" your park hopper feature each day. Once the clock strikes 2:00 p.m. you are able to enter any of the other Walt Disney World Theme Parks that you would like. It is not necessary, or even possible, to make more park pass reservations throughout the day. You can just head over to wherever your heart desires. 

    Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day, Donna. I hope you will enjoy it too. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Have fun and happy new year!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
