This is news that is incredibly exciting!
The Park Hopping option is returning for the Walt Disney World Resort beginning on January 1, 2021! That means that Guests who have purchased a ticket with Park Hopping included or those who are Walt Disney World Annual Passholders will be able to go from park to park, once again, with ease.
There are a few stipulations though. Guests will still need to make a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park they plan to visit. They also will have to enter that first park prior to visiting another. However, for those looking to Park Hop, at this time, a park reservation is not required after the first park. Of course, all this is still subject to change and reservation requirements may come to fruition at a later date.
Additionally, the option won’t be available to do until 2:00 p.m. each day. Guests will soon be able to check DisneyWorld.com/ParkHours and the My Disney Experience app for the most up-to-date Park Hopper hours, as they could start earlier at a later date, depending on the day and park.
These modifications are designed to help Disney continue managing attendance while promoting physical distancing. Additionally, other enhanced health and safety measures remain in effect, including face coverings required for all guests ages two and up. Also keep in mind that the ability to visit another park will be subject to the park’s capacity limitations.
Of course, it was expected that Park Hopping would return for 2021, since the Walt Disney World Resort did sell 2021 vacation packages that included the Park Hopping option. But it is exciting to actually see details on how it will officially work, finally.
Who else is excited to be able to Park Hop again? I know I am!
