    If we have a park hopper option would we be able to get into our next park of the day for a lunch reservation at 1:00pm? or do they not allow any earlier entry of 2pm for park hoppers? Would like to start off our next park with lunch but dont want to wait.

    Hello Kelsey!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask a question! I love park hopping on my Walt Disney World vacations. In October 2021, I visited all four theme parks in Walt Disney World in one day (three of the parks were after 2:00 pm)!

    Currently, if you have the Park Hopper Option on your Walt Disney World Tickets, you can Park Hop after 2:00 pm as long as there is park availability for that park. To do this, first, you will have to make a Theme Park Reservation for the Walt Disney World Theme Park, where you will start your Disney day, and you must enter that park before you are eligible to Park Hop on that particular day. You do not have to reserve the second park of the day that you are planning on Park Hopping to. Remember that park hopping is currently available after 2:00 pm each day based on availability. You can check the Park Hours Calendar or the My Disney Experience app for the most up-to-date Park Hopper hours. 

    You could make your lunch reservation after 2:00 pm in your second park of the day, but it sounds like that is not your preferred option. My recommendation is to make your lunch Advanced Dining Reservation in your first park of the day (swap your first park of the day with the park you want to park hop to in the afternoon). For example, If you wanted to have lunch at Epcot as your second park of the day and you started your day at Disney's Hollywood Studios, start your day at Epcot and eat lunch there. Then park hop after 2:00 pm to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I hope that you have an incredible Walt Disney World vacation!
