    We will be at Disney World for NYE this year. We have a park hopper ticket starting in Hollywood Studios and want to Hop to EPCOT. Can we park at Epcot in the morning and then take transportation to Hollywood Studios to enter the park?

    Hey there, Nisha thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question about your next visit. 

    New Year’s Eve at the Walt Disney World Resort is a very exciting time and a very popular night to spend at the parks. The Park Hopper Option is one of my favorite add-ons to include on my Disney trips. One worry I usually have with park hopping on holidays is the park you are going to reaches capacity before you arrive. And then the park you are leaving also being at capacity and not being able to get back into a park. My suggestion would be to choose between Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. Hollywood Studios are open until at least the stroke of midnight and EPCOT will stay open until 1 a.m. If you decide to park hop you will be able to park at EPCOT in the morning and take the transportation to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    It sounds like you do plan to ring in the new year at EPCOT and that is where I think the best New Year’s Eve vibes are. A quick tip is to talk to the Cast Members in each of the Pavilions, ask them how they celebrate the new year in that country. You will find most will be super helpful explaining their traditions. Cast Members are the magic that lies within these parks and if you ever have a great experience you can leave them a Cast Compliment on your My Disney Experience App. Just remember their name and where they were from, that is all displayed on their name tags. 

    Have a happy new year and enjoy your time at the parks. If you have any other questions or need any tips for planning revisit us at planDisney.com

    Have a magical day,
