    How do we use park hopper pass if you have to have a reservation?

    Hi there, Brynn! I see that you have a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth soon. I bet you are getting so excited. I love visiting during that time of year, everything is so festive and fun. 

    Brynn, with the return of park hopping at the start of this year we did see some changes. 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 a park pass reservation for the initial theme park they'd like to visit each day
    • On the day of, Guests wishing to park hop must scan into the theme park with the park pass reservation first before continuing on to other theme parks later that day
    • Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and lasts until each park closes in the evenings
    • It is not necessary (or even possible) to make additional park pass reservations throughout the day to park hop. You only need one park pass reservation each day
    • To make park hopping a little bit more convenient for Guests, complimentary park-to-park bus transportation si currently being provided
    Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day. I love visiting the theme parks early in the morning and crossing off some of my must-do's before the park tends to fill up for the day. Then, around lunchtime, I normally head back to the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that I am staying at for an afternoon swim. After some fun in the Florida sun, I like to clean up and head to Epcot for the evening. It is so fun walking around The World Showcase enjoying snacks and drinks into the evening hours. 

    I hope this helps explain parking hopping a little bit better, Brynn. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. Have fun and happy hopping!

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
