    Can we use our park hopper pass in the morning to travel on the skyline to Epcot so we can take the monorail to the magic kingdom? This will be in March 2022.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Meredith. I see that you have a vacation planned to the Most Magical Place On Earth in just a little over a month's time. You are going to have so much fun! 

    Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day. Since its return at the start of last year, it does look a little bit different than it used to. 

    Here's how park hopping is currently working:

    • Guests wishing to park hop must have valid theme park admission with the park hopper option
    • Guests wishing to park hop must have park pass reservations for a particular theme park they'd like to visit each day
    • Guests wishing to park hop must scan in and enter the theme park with the park pass reservation first before continuing to other theme parks later in the day
    • Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes in the evening
    Depending on the time of day, Meredith, and where your park pass reservation is made for this may or may not work. I'm going to say though that it's not a likely situation because you mentioned traveling in the morning. When you take the Disney Skyliner to EPCOT, you arrive at the International Gateway which is actually the back entrance of EPCOT. To get to the monorail, you'd have to scan in and enter Epcot, walk to the front of the park, exit and then board the monorail to head over to Magic Kingdom Park. Because you would need to enter Epcot first, your park pass reservation would need to be made for that particular theme park. Also, keep in mind that park hopping hours don't start until 2:00 p.m. so you would have to wait until then to actually enter Magic Kingdom Park. So as you can see, this wouldn't really work out in your favor if you are just trying to get over to Magic Kingdom Park in the morning. 

    To get to Magic Kingdom Park, I would highly encourage you to take direct transportation from your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Depending on where you are staying this could be a bus, boat or the monorail. It is going to be the most convenient and faster way to get to all the magic. 

    I hope this helps, Meredith. If you have questions about this or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun and enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
