    If I have a hopper pass and reserve a ticket for one park, can we hop over to another park that we didn’t reserve if it shows as unavailable?

    Hey There, Jaime!

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.  Can you believe you're only a few days away from arriving at Walt Disney World Resort?  Before you know it, you'll be strolling down Main Street, U.S.A. and taking in all the excitement of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration –– it's going to be amazing!  During your stay, you'll definitely want to plan some time to enjoy the parks once the sun goes down so you can experience the all-new Beacons of Magic.  Each night, the four theme park icons are transformed by stunning nighttime displays to honor The World's Most Magical Celebration.  Believe me, you won't want to miss them!

    If you ask me, park hopping is the perfect way to pack a little extra fun into your Walt Disney World vacation –– what could be better than starting your day with a DOLE Whip in Magic Kingdom Park and ending it with a Gingerbread Caramel Salted Buttercream Cookie Sandwich in EPCOT, right?  I'm happy to report that if you've added the Park Hopper Option to your Walt Disney World theme park admission, you'll only need to make a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park you plan to visit each day.  Once you've entered that park, you'll be able to hop over to any other available theme park beginning at 2 PM.  

    When it comes to entering your second park, don't be discouraged if you're looking at the Disney Park Pass availability calendar and you see that a certain park is unavailable –– this calendar only refers to theme park reservations, not park hopping.  And while I can't guarantee that all parks will be available for when it's time to hop, I can tell you that you'll typically have no problem jumping to any park that you choose at 2 PM, even during busier times of the year.  One thing I recommend, though, is checking to see if your second park is available before you head over.  This will save you the time and frustration of being turned away at the next park's main entrance in the event the park has reached its capacity limit.  You can do this by visiting any Walt Disney World Guest Relations location or by calling Disney's capacity hotline at (407) 560-5000.

    I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney, Jaime.  I hope this helped to answer your question and I'm wishing you lots of pixie dust during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit.

    See Ya Real Soon,
