Park Hopping Coming Back to Walt Disney World In January, 2021


Finally some really good parks news!  Park Hopping is coming back to Walt Disney World on January 1, 2021! If you purchased a Park Hopper on your tickets, or you’re an annual passholder, you will be able to visit more than one park per day, with some modification.

Here’s what Disney said:

With the updated Park Hopper experience, guests must make a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park they plan to visit AND enter that first park prior to visiting another. At this time, a park reservation is not required after the first park, however, reservation requirements are subject to change.

Additionally, we will set specific Park Hopper hours during which this option will be available. Park Hopper hours will start at 2 p.m. each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time. Guests will soon be able to check 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.

It stinks that you can’t do it until 2PM, but it’s great that we can do it again in general!

Disney is doing this to make sure they manage the capacity caps and not overload areas. They keep saying about physical distancing, but people really aren’t following the rules like they should anyways.

This is much needed good news for Disney Parks Fans! Especially those with Annual Passes, it was part of the perk of having one!

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
