    how does the park reservations work with the park hopper option?

    Hello Nathan,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. It looks like you'll be heading to Walt Disney World this fall. It's a fantastic time when the weather is still quite warm, but not scorching hot. The parks and Walt Disney World Resort Hotels are decorated for the season. You can add some extra seasonal magic by getting tickets to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and you can take in all the delicious flavors at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!

    Adding the Park Hopper Option to your tickets will give you the flexibility to return multiple times to your favorite parks. Our family especially loves being able to explore EPCOT festivals several times throughout our vacation. It will also help you have more options when it comes to making your dining reservations. If you are trying to get a dinner reservation to Space 220 Restaurant in EPCOT, and the only day it's available is a day you planned on going to Disney's Animal Kingdom, if you have the Park Hopper Option that will still work. You can enjoy your morning at Disney's Animal Kingdom, take a midday break, and then head to EPCOT in the evening.

    Basically, you'll need to make a reservation for ONE park each day. This is where you'll start your day, and then at 2:00 PM, or whenever park hopping begins, you can head to a different park, no reservations required. It's really that easy.

    Hope this helps. Enjoy planning your magical vacation!
