Waiting until 2 p.m. to park hop is over at Walt Disney World in 2024!
Disney Announced Yesterday (11 Oct. 2023):
Beginning Jan. 9, 2024, guests with a ticket with Park Hopper benefits or an Annual Pass will be able to once again visit another theme park at any time of day during park hours (subject to capacity limitations). As a reminder, since returning in 2021, Park Hopper access has only been available after 2 p.m. each day. Now, there will be no more waiting – guests can decide when it’s time to visit another park.
On days when theme park reservations are required for Annual Passholders and every day for Military Tickets, guests will be able to take advantage of the updates to Park Hopper access after visiting their first park. For example, if a Passholder has a reservation at EPCOT and enters the park at 9 a.m. for a quick ride or two, they can then head to another park right after.
We’ve got no clue what the reservation landscape will be like in 2024 with so many fewer people using it. Will parks ever become full and no reservations allowed?
This is fantastic news for those who like to be able to set their own schedule of when to switch parks! I sure do!
Since park hopping returned in 2021 after the 2020 shutdown having to wait until 2 has put a crimp in the plans of many folks.
This change is long past due!!!
