    If I have a park hopper ticket but the calendar shows that only 1 or 2 parks are available that day, can I still hop to another park?

    Hello Fran! Welcome to planDisney!

    I know that when planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation there is so much to think about and we always want it to be more than perfect.  I have to say, I've never had a Walt Disney World Resort vacation that was anything less than perfect, whether I planned it out months in advance or hopped on the next plane for a last-minute getaway! Even if this is your "last-minute getaway" have no fear, you'll be able to experience it all with a Park Hopper Option ticket!

    My family and I always, always, ALWAYS choose to purchase the Park Hopper Option Theme Park Ticket when we're ready to head to The Most Magical Place on Earth!  Not only because we're able to see and do more in less time, but because we love the ability to change plans on a whim or grab a last-minute dining reservation in a Park we may not have intended to visit that day.  

    Since it sounds like the Parks will be pretty busy during your visit, having the option to Park Hop in your back pocket is the best way to navigate your vacation! You're correct that even if the Park Pass Reservations are full for the days in which you want to visit you should still be able to Hop to those Parks anytime after 2 p.m.  While there is no guarantee that Park Hopping will be available every day, the chances are very good that you'll be able to enter each and every Theme Park while you're on Disney property.

    Did you know that there is a phone line you can call to make sure a Park has availability before you decide to Hop?  The Walt Disney World Park Hopping capacity hotline number is (407) 560-5000.  A quick call to this automated number will let you know whether any Parks have hit Park Hopping capacity for the day.  

    Just make sure you have a Park Pass Reservation for each Park you want to visit first each day.  You'll need to enter that Theme Park prior to the Parks you wish to Hop to after 2 p.m.  So Fran, spend your mornings in the Parks that still have Park Pass Reservations available and spend your evenings hopping to the others.  I hope you're able to catch the new nighttime spectacular Harmonious while you're visiting! Make sure to spend at least one night at EPCOT so you don't miss it!

    Happy Hopping!
