    Hi, have 4 day hopper, arriving Orlando 3 June, want to visit Magic Kingdom, do I have to make a reservation in order to visit Magic Kingdom or if I come after 2PM it would be considered the hopper then can make reservation for 4 June?

    Hi Darryl! That is a very good planning question! I’m glad you thought to bring it to planDisney!
    Your Park Hopper ticket is going to give you great flexibility during your vacation! Nice choice!

    When you have a Park Hopper ticket, you must make a Disney Park Pass Reservation for the park you plan to visit first on any given day. You must scan into that park prior to “hopping” to your second park. You can begin Park Hopping after 2:00 PM. You don’t have to make a Disney Park Pass Reservation for the park to which you’ll “hop.”

    Let’s discuss your specific plan! If you plan to visit Magic Kingdom Park on 3 June 2023, you must create a Disney Park Pass Reservation if that is the first park you plan to visit that day. It wouldn’t matter if it was after 2:00 PM. If that’s the first park you visit, you must have a Disney Park Pass Reservation. You could then “hop” to another park later that day or evening as your second park. You wouldn’t need the Disney Park Pass Reservation for that second park. You would repeat the process for each day that you plan to visit the Disney Parks!

    Darryl, I hope this clarifies how Park Hopping works! Please come back to planDisney if you have any other questions! We’re all EARS!

    Happy Planning!
