    If the park is at capacity, but I have the park hopper option and a dinner reservation, will they still let me in?

    Hi, Jewel! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with a question about your trip. We're happy to help.

    As it sounds like you know, the Park Hopper Option is a little bit different right now. But guests who include this option on their admission tickets do have the opportunity to visit more than one park on any given day (subject to availability). In order to exercise that option, you'll need to make reservations for one theme park and visit it prior to visiting the second theme park. After 2 PM, you can visit a second theme park as long as that park's capacity has not been reached. Keep a close eye on the My Disney Experience mobile app because when/if a park reaches capacity and is closed for park hopping, a push notification will be sent via the app. You can also inquire at Guest Relations if you prefer to do that. 

    You bring up a great question in asking whether a dining reservation will allow you to bypass capacity closures. In short, no, it will not. Guests are encouraged to make dining reservations at the theme park where they have a confirmed reservation because dining reservations or any other pre-booked experiences will not guarantee admission to a park once capacity has been reached. Guests can also check for walk-up availability at nearby restaurants via the mobile app once they gain admission to the park that they've "hopped" to.

    I hope that clears things up for you, Jewel. And I hope that your upcoming trip will leave you with some great memories made during a unique season in global history.
