    Hello, We are staying at BC and usually when we stay there we walk through Epcot to get the the monorail to go to Magic Kingdom. Is this a possibility anymore now that you have to make park reservations and cannot enter another park until after 2 pm?

    Hi Lacey!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! This is a great question because some of the ways many of us are used to doing things have indeed changed. It used to be that if you had a ticket with the Park Hopper Option or Walt Disney World Annual Pass, you could stroll through Epcot and then take the Monorail. But you are correct, with the need for Park Pass Reservations, this method will not work on a day you have a Park Pass Reservation for Magic Kingdom.

    For a Magic Kingdom start to your day, you will need to take the bus from Disney’s Beach Club to Magic Kingdom. After you have entered Magic Kingdom with your Park Pass Reservation for the day, if it is after 2 PM and you have the Park Hopper Option on your ticket, walking through Epcot would be an option. You do not need to make a second Park Pass Reservation for parks you plan to visit in the afternoon. While it might not be your family’s traditional way to start your day at Magic Kingdom, if you returned to the resort for an afternoon break and went back to Magic Kingdom for the evening, you would be able to enjoy your usual walk.

    I hope you enjoy your upcoming visit, Lacey. Please let us know if you have any additional questions before your visit!
