    Now that park hopping times have expanded, do I still have to wait until 1:30pm before I can catch a bus from Animal Kingdom to Hollywood Studios or EPCOT?

    Hi Stephen! Thanks for swinging by planDisney! Park hopping from Disney’s Animal Kingdom to either EPCOT or Disney’s Hollywood Studios sounds like a great way to experience the Disney Parks!

    I’ve got great news for you, Stephen! With the recent expansion of Park Hopping hours, Disney Transportation has modified Park Hopping transportation to begin at 10:00 AM every day!

    When I park hop, I usually start my day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom because it is usually the park that opens earliest. Then I hop to another park around 11:00. You can catch a transfer bus from Disney’s Animal Kingdom by simply heading to the bus loop outside the park. The bus will then take you to the park you prefer to visit next!

    Stephen, if you’re a “Disney morning person” and staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you should consider taking advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry benefit! This perk allows Guests to enter the park 30 minutes before park opening time! Those 30 minutes give you a great head start to your Disney day!

    Dreams do come true!
