    Hello, if I have the park hopper pass, how can I be sure that I will be able to get into all of the parks? Does their availability usually run out? I am planning to go on December 27th.

    Hi Lauren! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    In just a few short weeks you'll be "wheels up" and on your way to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I don't know about you but this freezing cold winter weather we're having in Massachusetts is not my favorite and I would do anything for some warm Florida sunshine and a little bit of Disney magic! 

    I've always been a fan of adding the Park Hopper Option to my Walt Disney World Resort vacations.  My family and I choose this option so that we can "rope drop" one Park like Magic Kingdom in the morning, head back to our Disney Resorts Collection hotel for a swim and rest in the afternoon and then pop into another Park like EPCOT for dinner and fireworks! Because we like to get up early and stay out late, the mid-afternoon nap is a perfect compromise as a time to recharge. 

    We all know that Walt Disney World is enchanting at any time of yEAR, but nothing is more exciting than seeing it decorated for the holidays. Because so many Guests want to visit during this time of year you may find the Parks to be a bit busier than usual.  Right now, according to the Theme Park Availability Calendar, all Parks except Magic Kingdom still have availability for Guests to make Theme Park Reservations on December 27.  This is most likely a good sign that you'll be able to Park hop to your Park of choice after 2 p.m.  

    Because Theme Park Reservations are not required for any Parks Guests plan to "hop" to later in the day it's hard to predict if the Park will hit capacity or not.  With that being said, Park Hopping is subject to availability, and Guests are not guaranteed entry to any Parks they do not have a Theme Park Reservation for.  If a Theme Park does reach capacity before or during Park Hopping hours Guests will be notified with a push notification on their My Disney Experience mobile app

    Hopefully, you and your party will be able to visit and explore each and every one of the four Theme Parks throughout your visit! Enjoy every moment!
