Park Hopping is coming back to Walt Disney World! Since reopening following the unprecedented closures due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, procedures and policies have been modified with a host of measures aimed at reducing spread.

Disney is now confident enough in their operations that beginning January 1, 2021, guests who purchased a ticket or annual pass with Park Hopper benefits will now be able to visit more than one park per day — but it will definitely be a little different than before.

How to Park Hop

20_SM_ParkHopper_Announcement_v3_buIf you have admission media that allows park hopping then here’s what you’ll need to do…

  1. Make a Disney Park Pass reservation for the FIRST park you plan to visit.
  2. Your first park entry for the day must be the park from your Disney Park Pass reservation.
  3. A park reservation is not required after the first park. Of course, all policies are subject to change.

Please note that the ability to visit another park will be subject to the park’s capacity limitations.

New Park Hopping Hours

Park Hopping can now only happen during designated Park Hopper hours which will start at 2 p.m. each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time.

Updates to and the My Disney Experience app will make it easy to get the most up-to-date Park Hopper hours information, as they could start earlier at a later date, depending on the day and park.

Park Hopping at Walt Disney World returns on January 1, 2021.

It’s important to note that Walt Disney World’s overall 35% capacity limit in its parks are NOT changing due to the retur nof Park Hopper option. So availability for hopping is still bound by each respective park’s capacity limitations.
