Park hopping looks a bit different than it did a few years ago.
And for those who haven’t visited the parks in quite some time, the system is a little confusing. We know you may have questions, so we’re here to answer them all!
When can guests park hop at Disney World?
Guests with valid park hopper tickets or Annual Passes to Disney World can park hop 2PM each day.
Will I still need a park pass reservation if I intend to park hop?
Yes! All guests must have a park pass reservation for the first park they plan to visit that day. You must enter that park before you’ll be allowed to hop to another though. However, no park pass reservation is needed for the second park (although this is subject to change). Guests should note that each park is still subject to limited capacity, including the park they choose to hop to.
Do I need a Park Pass for the park I plan to hop to?
Nope! As we mentioned above, as of this time, you only need the Park Pass for the park you plan to START your day in. You must scan into that park though before you’ll be able to hop to another at 2PM. No indication that guests will need to reserve their additional parks in any way has been suggested by Disney, but they did make clear that this is subject to change.
Will park-to-park transportation be available for park hopping?
Yes! Park to park transportation is available close to the 2PM time slot.
Can I visit more than 2 parks in a day?
Yes! You can hop to as many parks as you’d like. You just can’t start hopping until 2PM. And of course, you need a park hopper ticket.
Will I be able to attend a dining reservation in a park that I hop to that has already reached capacity?
The parks rarely hit capacity during park hopping time. But if you find yourself in this situation, just speak to a Cast Member. They should be able to assist you to make sure you can make your dining reservation.
