    Hi! We have tickets with the park hopper. If we have a dinner reservation for the evening at one park, can we start our day at another park? Ex. Can we switch our tickets to Animal Kingdom but keep our dinner reservation at Epcot for the same day?

    Hiya Candice and welcome to planDisney. Park hopping for attractions is first only to park hopping for dining experiences. We regularly start our day on one side of the “World” and then finish in another part.

    Yes, as long as you have a Disney Theme Park Ticket with the Park Hopper Option, make a reservation and enter Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park (Park #1) first, you will be able to hop over to EPCOT (Park #2) to make your evening dining reservation. It is just that easy.

    planDisney Pro Tip: When Park Hopping from one theme park to EPCOT you may take a Walt Disney World Bus Service to the main entrance or take a bus from a theme park or Disney Springs to Disney’s Beach Club Resort and then wait to EPCOT’s International Gateway. This entrance places you between the United Kingdom and France Pavilions.

    Candice, enjoy park hopping and getting at least twice Mickey’s theme park magic. I hope this information helps. Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
