    Is it possible to visit more than one Disney World park in the same day, with the second visit beginning before the park hopper entrance time of 2:00 pm?

    Hello David! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Having the ability to Park Hop is essential for me and my family when we visit Walt Disney World Resort. There is nothing I like better than starting my morning in one Park, like Magic Kingdom, heading back to my Resort during the heat of the day for a swim, and then stepping out for the evening in another Park, like EPCOT.  This gives us a chance to see the sun rising on Cinderella Castle and the bursting fireworks of Harmonious all in the same day.  

    You're correct that with the traditional Park Hopper Option Theme Park Ticket Guests of Walt Disney World need to wait until 2 p.m. to hop from Park to Park.  After purchasing your Theme Park Tickets you and your party will need to make Theme Park Reservations for the first Park you plan to visit each day.  After scanning into your first Park with the reservation, you'll be able to hop to any (and even all four!) other Parks! If you and your family like a good challenge, try to bounce to all four Parks in one day.  Now that's a wild ride!

    If you're interested, there is an incredible way to start hopping even earlier, and I wish I could make it happen for my family! Disney Private VIP Tours can whisk you and your party of up to 10 people from the door of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel to each and every Theme Park gate.  With your VIP Tour Guide and some pre-arrival planning, you and your family can bounce from one Park to another even before 2 p.m.  While the tour does require a valid Park Hopper Option Theme Park admission ticket as well as a minimum duration of at least seven hours, you'll be able to quickly see and do all of your favorite things with a knowledgeable and friendly Cast Member as your guide.  I bet it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!!

    Happy Hopping, David!
