    I understand that if we make dining reservations, it is smart to have it in park you actually HAVE reservations in. But now I am seeing that you MUST have a park reservation.. what happens if i park hop? Do i have to make reservations to park hop then?

    Hi Lori,

    Welcome back to planDisney, and greetings from a former Hoosier! We love when Guests keep coming back to see us, so thanks for bringing us another great question!

    Yes, you're correct...all Guests must have a Disney Park Pass reservation to be able to visit the parks, but as it stands now, you'll only need a reservation for the first park you plan on visiting. As long as you've made your reservation and actually entered the park, your Park Hopper Option ticket will allow you to visit the other parks beginning at 2:00 PM each day, pending any capacity limitations...no additional reservations required. If you currently have a dining reservation at a different park than the park where you made your Disney Park Pass reservation, know that there's a small risk you won't be able to access the park, but as long as you're not visiting on one of the most popular days of the year, you shouldn't have trouble accessing the other parks to shop, play, or dine. You'll be able to tell if park-hopping privileges are restricted due to capacity issues within the My Disney Experience app or by calling (407) 560-5000.

    Thanks for letting us be part of your planning process, Lori, and please feel free to keep your questions coming. I'm sending pixie dust that your itinerary comes together perfectly, and I hope you have a truly magical vacation!
