    How do park hoppers work with reservations? We like staying a beach club and hop into world showcase for breakfast before going to our park of the day….is this still possible?


    Thanks for the question! So while the Park Hopper Option is a great addition to your vacation planning, I don't think it will work the way that you described. The basics of Park Hopping now are that you start by picking a park for the day with the Theme Park Reservation system. That is your park for the day, but if you want to park hop, you can do so after 2 pm. You do want to check that the park you are moving to has space in it, but I have never had that problem.

    So no, you would not be able to grab a breakfast in the EPCOT World Showcase, and then head to your park that you have reserved for the day. Sorry! But I am a huge fan of Disney's Beach Club Resort, and there are great alternative breakfast choices you might want to consider.  I am sure you are familiar with some from past trips, like the Cape May Cafe. But I also have two new favorites, which include

    Topolino's Terrace (at Disney's Riviera Resort) has a fantastic character breakfast, with some amazing views of the Disney Skyliner and surrounding areas.

    Trattoria al Forno (at Disney's BoardWalk Inn) has a warm and cozy ambiance. I really like some of the lighter breakfast alternatives that they have to offer. 

    I hope that this helps! 

    Have a Magical Vacation!
