Disney World is bringing back Park Hopper perks in 2021 with a few changes


Walt Disney World has announced plans to bring back the Park Hopper pass in 2021, with a few restrictions.

Starting January 1, 2021, guests who purchase a ticket or annual pass with Park Hopper benefits will once again be able to visit more than one park per day.

The pass allows access to iconic parks like Disney World's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT.

Guests must make a reservation before visiting any of the parks. They must also enter that specific park before leaving for another. Park Hopper will start at 2 P.M. and end at the park’s scheduled closing time.

The park is continuing to enforce safety measures. Visitors are required to wear masks, and social distancing guidelines have been posted throughout the park.

The change is welcome as in previous months, Disney suspended "park hopper" in July under the phased reopening. Guests were only able to make a reservation for one park per day rather than the multiple parks per day allowed under "park hopper."

Disney is urging visitors to use the My Disney Experience App to receive the latest information on park hours and safety guidelines.

Director of Communications Avery Maehrer assured visitors that the new restrictions are designed to manage attendance and encourage social distancing.

Since reopening in July, Disney World has capped attendance at the park at 25% capacity. Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek revealed the park will continue at that rate unless they get new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
