    Can we hop to three parks in one day, during Covid?

    Welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth!

    My family hasn’t yet checked “all four theme parks in one day” off our bucket list, but the day we visited three parks was positively dreamy. We had a BLAST, and I’m not sure my kids have ever slept so soundly. Thank you for this question and the walk down memory lane!

    The Park Hopper ticket option returned to the Walt Disney World Resort in January as part of the phased reopening. To park hop, you’ll need to purchase tickets with the Park Hopper option, and then make Disney Park Pass reservations for the first theme park of each day of your visit. Currently, Park Hopper Hours begin at 2:00 p.m. daily, but you should always check the Park Hours as that time is subject to change. When Park Hopper Hours begin, you’ll need to check availability by calling (407) 560-5000; as long as your next park isn’t at capacity, you’re welcome to head there. When you’re ready for the next park after that, call the number and hop over if it’s not at capacity. You only need a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park of the day; after that, park hopping is subject to capacity restrictions.

    Elizabeth, as you plan your day, be sure to check the most up-to-date Park Hours. Given the time it takes to travel between theme parks, temperature screening and security checks as you enter each park, and operating hours, it may be tricky to hop to a third theme park. To use Disney transportation to park hop, you’ll have your MagicBand or ticket card scanned to show you have a Park Hopper ticket. I see you’re arriving next week, so I’d also encourage you to keep in mind that spring break crowds mean longer wait times.

    If you really want to do it as a bucket list item, a lot of park hopping pros take the “ride one attraction and eat one snack” approach to Park Hopping. For example, you’d enjoy Magic Kingdom Park as your first park, and spend the most time there. Then, when Park Hopper Hours start, you head over to EPCOT, hop on Spaceship Earth and grab an iconic La Vie En Rose slush and macaron ice cream sandwich in the France pavilion. From there, you’d hop on the Disney Skyliner over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and scream your face off on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and enjoy a Ronto Wrap and Blue Milk in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This is a really fun way to do it, but I only recommend that approach if you don’t mind missing experiences in each theme park.

    I hope you have a very hop-py time at The Most Magical Place on Earth in just a few days! If you think of any more questions as you count down the days to your visit, please come back and see us. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
