    Park hopper rules

    Hi Kevin!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! I am happy to give you the scoop on the Park Hopper Option at Walt Disney World. Park Hopper benefits include the ability to visit more than one park in a day. Given the new health and safety protocols at Walt Disney World, there are a few guidelines for usage.

    1. Park Reservation: You will need to make a theme park reservation for the first park you plan to visit, as you will need both valid theme park admission and a park reservation to enter.
    2. Park Hop at 2 PM: You can "hop" to your second park of the day beginning at 2 PM. You do not need a park reservation for your second park.
    If you're up to it, you can visit all four theme parks in one day with the park hopper option! I did this once and had a blast! Check out the Walt Disney World theme park calendar for park hours so you can plan out which parks you want to visit.

    I usually love to start at Disney's Animal Kingdom because the animals are more active in the morning. Disney's Magic Kingdom is great for the evening because you can watch Disney Enchantment, the fireworks show! 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
