Park Hopping Set to Return on January 1st
Starting Jan. 1, 2021, guests purchased a ticket or annual pass to enter that first park before visiting another. Park Hopper hours will start at 2:00 PM each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time. At this time, a park reservation is not required after the first park; however, reservation requirements are subject to change. 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.
