    How difficult is it to park hoo? Are people denied entrance to their 2nd park?

    Hey there, hi there, Karen! Welcome, and thank you for hopping over to visit.

    One of the best ways to do and see all the things you want at Walt Disney World is to add the park hopper option to your theme park tickets. You can pick highlights from each park, check out a new dining experience after spending the day in a different park, and basically plan your visit the way that works best for your family. 

    Just to quickly cover how the park hopper option works, you will need to make a reservation at one of the four theme parks on the days you want to visit the parks. You have to scan into that park at any time during the day, but you will need to do it before using the park hopper benefit. After 2 PM, you can hop over to any available park.

    Now, when I say "available" park, it means that if a park is full to capacity, you won't be able to hop over to that park. But please don't let that worry you, Karen. I have had park hopper passes for years, and only once did I get a text message saying one of the parks was not available for park hopping, and that was during Christmas week. For the most part, hopping isn't difficult at all, but during super busy times, you may find that a park might be unavailable. Christmas, spring break, maybe even Fourth of July - during those super busy times, hopping may be limited, but it's a very infrequent occurrence.

    Keep faith, trust, and pixie dust in your heart, Karen!
