    Hi! With Park Hopper can you re-enter the first park you had a reservation for after visiting the second park? I'm hoping to start at EPCOT, park hop to Animal Kingdom at 2pm then return to EPCOT in the evening for the Food & Wine Festival! Thanks!

    Hi Robbie,

    Thanks for continuing to trust planDisney with your thoughtful trip-planning questions. EPCOT and I share a birth year, so it will forever hold a special place in my heart. I've been quite impressed by its recent evolution, which showcases human innovation along with the beauty of our diverse world. There are no words to describe the epicness of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, so I'll just explain that this attraction can only be experienced by using your My Disney Experience mobile app to join the virtual queue and/or purchase an Individual Lightning Lane.

    With a ticket with the Park Hopper Option and a theme park reservation for EPCOT, Robbie, you have unlimited access to park hopping after 2:00 p.m. This means you can complete the four parks in one day challenge, though it sounds like you're going for what I call the OREO-cookie challenge. You are welcome to start and end your day at EPCOT (the cookies) and visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in the middle (the cream). In fact, I encourage it! Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park typically closes earlier than the other theme parks, so you'll be maximizing the magic in your Park Hopper Ticket by returning to EPCOT.

    I have the Global Marketplaces at the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival to thank for broadening my culinary horizons. The Teriyaki Chicken Bun from Japan and Canadian Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Soup from Canada are a few of my favorite savory options. Karamell-Küche is my favorite EPCOT spot to find something sweet and the Italian Margarita with tequila and limoncello from the Italy booth puts a new spin on a classic favorite. 

    I hope this good news gives you sweet dreams, Robbie - literally! I'd love to see you at planDisney again soon.

    Choose magic,
