Disney fans everywhere will be thrilled to hear that Park Hopping is returning to Disney World! Read on for all the details on when it starts, and what you’ll need to know.
Fans of Disney World have always loved the ability to start your day in one park, and hop over to another later on in the day. When the Theme Parks began their phased reopening in July 2020, fans were dismayed to learn Theme Park Hopping would temporarily be discontinued.
Today, we learned of an exciting change to Disney World’s procedures: Park Hopping will be allowed again very soon!
Here’s what we know:
The Return of Park Hopping
Starting January 1, 2021, guests who purchased a ticket or annual pass with Park Hopper benefits will be able visit more than one park per day!
However, there are some changes Guests should be aware of.
New Park Hopping Changes
Guests who intend to Park Hop will continue to make a Disney Park Pass Reservation before entering the Theme Parks.
If you would like to Park Hop, you will first make a reservation for the first park you intend to visit AND you will need to enter that park first prior to visiting another.
Currently, you will not need to make a park pass reservation for the additional park or parks you intend to visit.
Disney does note that reservation requirements are subject to change.
Park Hopper Hours
There will be specific Park Hopper hours during which Park Hopping will be available. Park Hopper Hours begin at 2 pm each day and will end at the park’s scheduled closing time.
Be sure to check Character Locator for updated hours for each park before you visit!
Health and Safety
These new changes to Park Hopping are designed to help Disney manage attendance and social distancing efforts.
It is important to note that Park Hopping is not a guarantee. Guests will be limited in the ability to visit other parks if that park’s capacity is filled.
