    How does park hopping work when park reservations are required? I purchased two park hopper tickets and reserved magic kingdom day 1 and animal kingdom day 2. How do I park hop? Do I need to make another reservation? Thank you

    Hi Shea! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is SO close now! I can almost smell the sweet treats from Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom Park and hear the animal sounds filling the trails of Disney's Animal Kingdom as I think about your upcoming vacation. You must be so excited!

    The return of the Park Hopper option to the theme parks has made many people (like me!) very happy! It sounds like you are already on the right track with your theme park tickets and Disney Park Pass reservations in place. Currently, you can begin park hopping at 2:00 PM, but keep an eye on the My Disney Experience mobile app for any updates to that time. You do not need a second Disney Park Pass reservation at this time, only one for the first theme park you plan to visit, and you must enter the first park with your reservation first.

    When you are ready to hop over to the next theme park, all you'll need is your theme park ticket with the Park Hopper option, to make sure you are within the designated park hopping hours, and for the second theme park to not be at full capacity. You'll be hopping around The Most Magical Place on Earth in no time!

    I hope this helps, Shea! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
