    If I purchase a hopper pass can I leave the first park at 2pm visit another park and come back to the first park?

    Hey there, Julie. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I see that your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth is quickly approaching. I bet you are getting so excited! 

    Julie, park hopping is my favorite way to spend a day. I love visiting the first theme park of the day during the early morning hours. I am always so surprised at how much I can cross off of my must-do before lunchtime. Then, in the afternoon when I feel like the parks are at their busiest I like to head back to the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that I am staying at for an afternoon swim. After I've had my fill of fun in the Florida sun I'll oftentimes clean up and head over to Epcot for the rest of the evening. It's a perfect way to spend a Disney day. 

    I think you'll be happy to know that you will be able to hop to a different Walt Disney World Theme Park after 2:00 p.m. and then head back to the first park you visited later that day. With your park hopper pass, you can actually visit one, two or even all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks in a single day. There is really so much flexibility. Park hopping does look a little bit different than it did before. Right now, to park hop, you must have valid theme park admission with the park hopper option. In addition to that, you are going to need to make park pass reservations for the first theme park you'd like to visit each day. Then, on the day of, you'll need to scan in and visit the theme park with the park pass reservation first before continuing on to other theme parks later in the day. Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes in the evening. 

    I hope this helps you plan your day a little bit better, Julie. If you have any other questions before your trip, please stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. Have fun and enjoy!

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
