    Hello! We're are planning on park hopping to Epcot after a morning in Animal Kingdom. Can I buy a Remy's pass when it opens in the morning, or do I need to wait until I hop?

    Welcome to planDisney, Mark. It's not long now until you're off to Neverland! Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning. It's certainly time to think happy thoughts. The World's Most Magical Celebration is well underway and there's oodles of EARidescent excitement at each Theme Park.

    The Park Hopper option is a great way to maximize the magic of your Disney day. My wife and I love to start the day in Disney's Animal Kingdom and then end the day in EPCOT. There's nothing quite like grabbing a bite to eat and a well-earned drink around World Showcase, before snuggling up to watch the fireworks. Have you seen Harmonious yet, Mark? Make sure you do! It's truly spectacular! Here's a hint: watch it from the Italy pavilion if you want the best view.

    Here's some good news for you, Mark: Even if your Theme Park Registration that day is for Disney's Animal Kingdom, you have the option of making Individual Lightning Lane selections at another Park. That means you are able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. Having recently experienced this wonderful attraction for the first time, I know you'll love every second of it. It's incredibly immersive, whimsical and fun! Since this new attraction is so popular, I'd encourage you to secure your Individual Lightning Lane(s) as early in the day as possible. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel (which I heartily recommend) then you can make your purchase at 7:00 a.m. If you're staying off property, then you'll have to wait until EPCOT opens. 

    Since you'll be at EPCOT, don't miss the beautiful Beacons of Magic display on Spaceship Earth. I was captivated by it! And since you'll be visiting during the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, you might want to catch one of the Beauty and the Beast or Aladdin showings for the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series. Is there a better place to experience a Disney show tune than at Walt Disney World? I don't think so!

    I hope that information is helpful, Mark. TTFN, ta ta for now.
