    We purchased the park hopper option and made reservations each day (3 total) for which parks we wanted to go to. If we made a reservation for animal kingdom, can we still go to magic kingdom that afternoon without a reservation with the hopper pass?

    Hello there, Jordan. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day, Jordan. More often than not you'll find me at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks in the early morning to get in some of my must-do attractions. Then, around lunchtime, when I feel like the parks are at their busiest, I often take a break and head back for an afternoon swim. Then, around dinnertime, you can usually find me hopping over to Epcot for snacks and drinks around The World Showcase. It's a practically perfect day if you ask me. 

    Park hopping returned to us at the start of this year but does look a little bit different than it did before. 

    Here's how park hopping is currently working:

    • Guests wishing to park hop must have valid theme park admission with the park hopper option
    • Guests wishing to park hop must have park pass reservations for an initial theme park to visit each day
    • On the day of, Guests wishing to park hop must scan in and enter the theme park with the park pass reservation before continuing on to other parks later in the day
    • Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes in the evening
    • To make park hopping a little bit easier, complimentary park-to-park bus transportation is currently being provided. 
    Jordan, as long as you've entered the park with the park pass reservation first and it's after 2:00 p.m. you can visit any or all of the other Walt Disney World Theme Parks that day without making additional park pass reservations.

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