    Hi! I was wondering about the park hopper option. I purchased the park hopper option and made a park reservation for Animal Kingdom and I plan to go to Hollywood Studios in the afternoon. Do I also have to made a park reservation of Hollywood Studios?

    You're as welcome as can be at planDisney, Julie! 

    Before you know it, you'll be arriving at Walt Disney World Resort, getting ready to enjoy the magic and wonder as you experience your favorite stories come to life! You're going LOVE beginning your day admiring the beauty of Pandora - The World of Avatar while riding on the back of an Ikran (Banshee) on Avatar Flight of Passage in Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, and then ending it exploring the far-off planet of Batuu inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Julie, you're doing an excellent job planning your vacation! You've purchased your theme park tickets with the Park Hopper Option and made your theme park reservations for Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. The great news is, with the Park Hopper Option, you only have to make theme park reservations for the first park you're planning on entering, which you've already done. Yippie! Once you've entered the first park, you'll be able to park hop and enter Disney's Hollywood Studios anytime after 2 PM.

    I hope you treat yourself to my very favorite snack while you're there: Grilled Corn on the Cob with African Spices at Harambe Fruit Market! And if you're planning on having lunch at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, I absolutely love placing a Mobile Food Order at Satu'li Canteen. Everything I've ever tried on the menu has been mouthwatering, and it's genuinely one of my favorite dining locations. 

    By the time you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios, stop by The Trolley Car Café, which serves a selection of STARBUCKS® Coffee, to grab a yummy beverage so you can take on the thrills and adventures of the park! 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Julie!
