    When you purchase a hopper pass, I know you can't go to the 2nd park until 2pm. But can you go back to first park later, like for the night show?

    Hi there, Robin. Welcome to planDisney

    Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day, Robin. I am so excited you'll be touring the Walt Disney World Theme Parks this way in just a few short weeks. 

    Yes, with a park hopper ticket Robin, you can visit one, two, three or all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks on one particular day. You can also start at one park in the morning, have a late lunch in a different park and then head back to the first park for the evening. You can plan your itinerary however you'd like. 

    Here are a few key things about park hopping right now:

    • To park hop you must have valid theme park admission with the park hopper option
    • To park hop you must have park pass reservations for the first theme park you'd like to visit each day
    • Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes in the evening
    • On the day of, you'll need to scan in and enter the theme park with the park pass reservation before continuing on to other theme parks later in the day - this sort of "activates" your park hopper feature each day
    • To make park hopping a little bit more convenient at this time, complimentary park to park transportation is currently being provided 
    I love vising Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park first thing in the morning, Robin. Then, in the afternoon when it gets a little too warm outside, I typically head back to the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that I happen to be staying at for an afternoon swim. Then, after I've had my fun in the Florida sun I like to clean up to spend the rest of the day snacking and sipping around the World Showcase at Epcot. It's a perfect Disney day. 

    I hope you enjoy park hopping, Robin. If you have any other questions before your trip, feel free to swing back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Happy hopping!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
