    Do I have to go to my reserved park first before I can park hop?

    Hi there, Kimberley! Thanks for your question.

    What an amazing time it is to visit Walt Disney World. With your quickly approaching arrival date, you'll not only be able to enjoy the 50th Anniversary Celebration, but you're in time to see what's blooming over at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

    If your theme park tickets have the park hopper option, you will need to make a theme park reservation for your first park of the day. You DO need to go to that park first to scan in. You don't need to be there first thing in the morning - there's no particular time you need to get there - you just need to go there first. Then from 2 PM on, you can park hop to whichever of the theme parks you'd like to visit. 

    Did you know, Kimberley, that you can use Disney's Genie Service even at your second theme park? You can take advantage of the Genie+ ability to make Lightning Lane selections, and you can even book Individual Attraction Selections in your second park. 

    I hope your upcoming trip is magical, memorable, and filled with some truly amazing moments!
