    If I buy a park hoper ticket for a specific day, and go to Epcot first, am I guaranteed entry into Magic Kingdom later that same day?

    Joe, thanks for coming to planDisney. Park hopping is a super fun activity and this combo is my number one park combination.

    EPCOT in the morning is such Hello a great sight to see. I usually start my day with an early wake-up call so I can make sure to log in to the My Disney Experience App to try and join the Virtual Queue. You can join the queue starting at 7 a.m. the morning of your visit to try and get a boarding group for the out-of-this-world coaster. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind makes sure you don't miss out on any of the action by rotating 360 degrees. Once you arrive you can start in France at Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and work your way back to Spaceship Earth before you decide to park hop starting at 2 p.m. If you decide to hop to the Magic Kingdom Park there usually is availability to park hop however it is not guaranteed to be available as maximum park capacity has happened during the summer vacation season in the past. It looks like you will be arriving for a holiday weekend and your concern is certainly understandable. Your My Disney Experience App will tell you if the park is at capacity. 

    When you hop over to Magic Kingdom Park once you make your way down Main Street U.S.A. I would make sure to make my way to some of my favorite classics like Jungle Cruise"it's a small world", and some of the new ones like Seven Dwarves Mine Train. Before the end of the night, I would get a snack and stake out a spot for the fireworks spectacular Happy Ever After. Finishing the night watching the skies over Cinderella Castle is what my idea of a storybook ending looks like.

    I hope this information is helpful in planning your summer visit to the parks. If you have any other planning needs please head on back and ask me a question at and I will be happy to help.

    See ya real soon,

    Jeremy A.
