    Hi, I’m wondering if after 2 pm, I can get into the theme park that is shown as full when I book the hopper ticket?

    Hi Xinyi! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    I don't know if you've noticed lately, but Walt Disney World Resort is just blooming with visitors this spring! It may be that the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is also blooming, or that the 50th Anniversary of the Resort is too special to miss, but Guests have been flocking back to the Resort and loving every minute of it!

    Having a Park Hopper Option Theme Park Ticket is a great way to maximize your time in the Parks and make sure to get to see and do everything you want to, even if Theme Park Reservations are full for your choice Theme Park of the day.  When you go to make your Theme Park Reservations if you can't seem to get the Park you wanted for the morning you can certainly use your Park Hopper and "hop" to any Theme Park (or even to all the others!) anytime after 2 p.m. each day.  While there is a possibility that the Parks could fill up, and hopping would not be allowed, this is a slight chance, and there are ways to check if the Parks are available before you decide to switch.  

    If you're interested in making sure Park Hopping is available before you switch parks you can quickly and easily call the Park Hopper Hotline at (407) 560-5000 to hear updates on Park availability.  Most of the time, you'll have no issue hopping between one, two, three, or even all four Theme Parks in one day.  

    My favorite way to spend a day at Walt Disney World Resort is to get up with the sun and arrive for Early Theme Park Entry "rope drop."  This means arriving even before the Parks have opened!  We make our way from ride to ride while the crowds are low and then head back to our Disney Resorts Collection hotel for a swim and a nap! After that, we're refreshed enough to get back to another Park for dinner and fireworks.  It's a great way to pack in a variety of attractions while also taking some time to rest and recharge!

    Happy hopping!
