    If park hopping has designated times to hop from 2pm, how long do those designated times go on until?

    Hi Lewis,

    Thank you for trusting planDisney with such an important question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. My family loves tickets with the Park Hopper Option because they allow us to enjoy a morning safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and a nighttime spectacular like Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios. We most often take an afternoon break back at our Disney Resorts Collection hotel before our park hopping begins.

    Here's how park hopping currently works. If you have a ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you must make a theme park reservation for the first park you plan on entering each park day. As long as you have entered that park at some point during the day, you can 'hop' to any of the three other theme parks after 2:00 p.m. without an additional theme park reservation. Park hopping continues until each park's scheduled close time, which varies by date and theme park.  

    If you decide to purchase Disney Genie+ service on any of your park hopping days, Lewis, it's helpful to know you can make Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations for attractions at any theme park. The key is to click "Change Park" on the Tip Board of your My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Tip Board). Just know that you can't book an attraction at a park you're hopping to until the next arrival time for that attraction reaches 2:00 p.m. 

    Have fun park hopping til you drop, Lewis. Hop over to planDisney anytime with other vacation-planning questions.
