    With the change in ticketing, would I be able to go to 3 parks in one day? We are considering hoping to Epcot for just a meal. Also, can I start my day in MK and still buy a lightening lane for new starwars ride in HS? And just hold it all day?

    Hey there, hi there Jolena!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Your Walt Disney World vacation will be here before you know it! 

    It sounds like you have added the Park Hopper Option to your tickets. That's a great plan if you are trying to see as much as possible in a short amount of time. I'm not sure if you are only spending a day, or if you have a longer trip planned, but visiting 3 parks in one day is possible with the Park Hopper Option.

    If you plan on starting your day in Magic Kingdom, you'll want to make sure you make a reservation for that park. After 2:00 PM, or whenever park hopping starts for the day, you'll be able to head to the other parks without making any additional reservations.

    When it comes to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can make an Individual Lightning Lane purchase for that attraction with a return time in the afternoon even if Magic Kingdom is your first park of the day. Are you staying at a Walt Disney World Resort? I only ask because, resort guests are able to purchase their first Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00 AM, while guests staying elsewhere need to wait until the park opens for the day before being able to make an Individual Lightning Lane purchase. Because this attraction is so popular, the Individual Lightning Lanes often sell out in minutes which would mean that if you aren't staying at a Walt Disney World resort, it may not be available by the time you are able to make that purchase.

    If you aren't staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you might want to consider switching your touring plans around. Start your day in Disney's Hollywood Studios and head straight to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. You'll probably end up waiting in line for a while, but not nearly as long as you would if you weren't able to get the Individual Lightning Lane and had to wait in the standby line in the afternoon or evening. Then you can head to EPCOT for a late lunch, or really early dinner, and close out your evening in Magic Kingdom. You also might consider using an Individual Lightning Lane purchase to experience Remy's Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT. (That's another one that sells out relatively quickly, so you should purchase it early in the day.) I know this is the total opposite of your ideal day, but it could work, and watching fireworks over Cinderella Castle during Disney Enchantment is certainly a magical end to any Disney day.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
