We have some exciting and long awaited news this morning! Walt Disney World has announced that Park Hopping will be available beginning January 1st, 2021!!

Disney has stated “As the phased reopening of Walt Disney World® resort continues, we are nearing another exciting milestone we know many guests have been looking forward to: The return of the Park Hopper® option! Starting Jan. 1, 2021, guests who purchased a ticket, package or annual pass with Park Hopper® benefits will be able to visit more than one park per day with some modifications as part of our ongoing focus on health and safety.”

Here are the details on what we know about how this will work.

We are so excited to see more somewhat normal operations for Walt Disney World® resort. We cannot wait to see all that 2021 brings! If you are ready to plan your Walt Disney World® vacation, we are ready to help you plan!

Guests will make a park pass reservation for the first park they wish to enter AND enter that park first for the day. Park Hopper® hours will be set from 2pm to park close each day. But also watch the park calendar as Park Hopper® hours are subject to change.

The ability to visit another park will be subject to the other parks capacity limitations and is not guaranteed.

Further, only guests with a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Guests visiting from another park will not be able to join a virtual queue.

Park to Park transportation will resume in 2021 and will begin shortly before the Park Hopper® hours.
