    If I am not using hopper but plan to use two park passes to go from Epcot to Hollywood Studios, can I later re-enter Epcot without having to use a third park pass?

    Hi Martin!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are getting ready for a magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort and I'm happy to help you with your plans. Be sure to take advantage of the FastPass+ System so you can make the most of your vacation time by enjoying many of the attractions on your "must-do" list using the FastPass+ queue rather than the Standby queue!

    Standard theme park tickets will allow Guests entry and re-entry into one theme park per day. This means you can visit Epcot in the morning, leave the theme park to visit Disney Springs or enjoy a rest at your Disney Resort hotel and then return to Epcot later that day to enjoy the nighttime activities at the theme park. (Keep in mind that there are a few days a year where the theme parks are incredibly busy and they may fill to their capacity. So if you will be visiting on Christmas Day, New Years Eve or other extremely busy days, your theme park re-entry is not guaranteed.)

    Unfortunately, Guests can only use one day of their theme park tickets per calendar day. So you will not be able to use one day's ticket to enter Epcot and another day of your ticket to enter Disney's Hollywood Studios on the same calendar day. So in order to accommodate the itinerary you have planned where you visit two theme parks on the same calendar day, you must add the Park Hopper Option to your tickets. If your tickets have already been purchased, you can upgrade them to add the Park Hopper Option by visiting any theme park ticket window, Guest Relations location or Disney Resort hotel lobby concierge.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning your magical vacation! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
