    We are now pixie dust Passholders! Trying to understand park hopping now as an AP - where we can only hold 3 reservations at a time would we have to make a reservation for both parks in the same day that we plan to park hop?

    Hi there, Tom! 

    Welcome to planDisney--and welcome to the Annual Passholder family! There's nothing like being able to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth mostly anytime our hearts desire. Of course, first, the key to the kingdom is to make a theme park reservation. Let's get into it!

    Before making a theme park reservation, check out the Theme Park Availability calendar and your blockout dates for the Disney Pixie Dust Annual Pass. As you know, you can hold up to 3 park reservations at a time. As soon as you use one, feel free to make a new one. And sometimes, you'll find little gold stars on certain dates, which are bonus reservations you can make above the 3-date limit.

    The best part about the Disney Park Pass Reservation system? You only need to make a theme park reservation for the first park you visit on that particular day. My family absolutely loves the ability to park hop after 2 p.m. to any of the other theme parks without making a planned decision. One moment, we're on a safari through the savannah at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and the next, we're hanging out with Chewbacca at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    AN EXTRA GEM: I have AMAZING news! Beginning April 18, 2023, Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholders won't need a park reservation if we plan on visiting the theme parks after 2 p.m.! The only exception is on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom Park. Yay for more spontaneous trips! 

    Tom, if you have any further questions about planning your upcoming Disney trips, please give us a holler here at planDisney. I'm all ears!

    Magic always,
