Disney World has been reopened to the public for about four months now and today we got some pretty exciting news! Check out this email Disney sent out to Annual Passholders:
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 or annual pass with Park Hopper benefits will be able to visit more than one park per day, with some new modifications as part of our ongoing focus on health and safety.
How Park Hopping Will Work
Here is a bit more information on the process, you will still need to get a Park Pass Reservation for the first park you plan to go to that day. Plus you will need to have entered that park before you can visit another.
In order to still maintain capacity limitations park hopping will only be available after certain hours each day. Park Hopping reservation system will open up to those with qualifying tickets after 2 pm and continue through park closing hours. There is potential that this may be adjusted depending on the park later.
Once you have entered your first park with your Park Pass you can then visit another as long as the Park Hopping hours have started, so after 2 pm until park closing time. Remember this only applies if you get the Park Hopper option added onto your tickets, or you have an Annual Pass.
Conclusion on Return of Park Hopping
It looks like things are looking up for 2021, we have positive progress on a vaccine for COVID-19 and now we get the return of park hopping at Disney World again.
Who else is planning on taking the 4 park challenge on when they visit next year now? Let us know in the comment section below how you feel about park hopping coming back to Disney World.
I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
