    Hello! I would love to book the After Party Dessert Party but saw that I needed a park reservation. Does this still apply if I will be park hopping from Epcot to MK?

    Hiya, Cheyenne!

    Welcome to planDisney –– I'm so glad you've stopped by with your question.  With only a few weeks left until you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, I bet the excitement is really starting to set in!  How cool that you're thinking of adding a Magic Kingdom 50th Fireworks Dessert Party to your itinerary –– I think you're going to love it!  I got to enjoy my first Dessert Party at EPCOT last year and I absolutely loved it!  Seriously, with plenty of sweet treats and reserved viewing for fireworks, it doesn't get much better, right?! 

    As your visit is only a month away, now is the perfect time to finalize all those last-minute planning details, including making your Disney Park Pass theme park reservations for your visit.  Since this process can seem a little puzzling when you're hoping to make a reservation after Park Hopping, let me explain how Disney Park Pass reservations work to help clear up any confusion. Each day you plan to visit a Walt Disney World theme park, you'll need valid admission and a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park you plan to visit each day.  If your ticket includes the Park Hopper Option, you'll be able to jump to your next park at 2 PM without making an additional reservation.  This means that you can make a theme park reservation for EPCOT and hop to Magic Kingdom Park for your 50th Fireworks Dessert Party without making a different Disney Park Pass reservation.

    While you should have absolutely no problem hopping over to Magic Kingdom to enjoy your sweet treats, I would be remiss without mentioning that Park Hopping is subject to capacity limits –– this means that there is always a chance that Magic Kingdom Park could be at capacity on the day of your visit and therefore closed to park hopping.  However, while this is always a possibility, I can tell you that Park Hopping has very rarely been unavailable, even during busy holiday seasons.  Personally, I wouldn't have any concerns about making a Dessert Party reservation for my second park, particularly in mid-August, but it's up to you to weigh the risk and decide what's best for your family.  In the highly-unlikely event that you would be unable to enter the park, keep in mind in the event of a no-show or cancelation within 5 days of the reservation, you would still be charged for the full price of the event ticket.

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Cheyenne.  I hope your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit is filled with delectable desserts and plenty of pixie dust!

    See Ya Real Soon,
