As the year nearly comes to an end, Disney World is giving Guests a big reason to celebrate the new year. At Walt Disney World, Guests can indulge in all four Parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios. Each Park offers exclusive attractions, themed dining experiences, and nighttime entertainment.
When visiting “The Most Magical Place On Earth,” Guests often want to do it all. To do so means you’ll either need to take at least a four-day trip to the Resort or figure out how to cram everything into your vacation time. Disney tries to make it easy with perks and accommodations for those staying on property to make your trip as magical as possible.
For Guests staying at Resorts, they have free transportation to and from the Parks. Additionally, Guests have free self-parking while staying. Some Resorts even offer early entry into the Parks so that you can start your adventure early. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many perks have gone away. Over the last couple of years, Disney has reintroduced some to add the magic back into Guests’ stays.
The most recent perk to rejoin Disney World is the tram service at all four Disney World Parks. Another offer is “Digital downloads of select PhotoPass attraction photos taken in the park on the day of visit now included in the purchase of Disney Genie+ service,” Disney writes.
All-Day Park Hopper Returns
Beginning in the new year, Guests will be able to park hop all day long! Starting on January 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),” Disney excitingly releases.
Recently, Park Hopping re-opened from the pandemic in 2021. There was limited access, though, with only allowing Guests to Park Hop after 2 p.m. Now, Guests have the control to choose when they’d like to end their experience at one Park and move over to the next. This could mean breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table in Magic Kingdom, lunch at Yak and Yeti in Animal Kingdom, and a Fantasmic! and dinner at Hollywood Studios.
Simply put, Disney is bringing back the all-day Park Hopper as a way to have a better experience at Disney! It seems they have listened to Guests and made the change to have “more fun.” Furthermore, Disney details, “We know how much Disney means to so many of you, and we continue to make changes so you get more value out of your vacation and to help you, your friends, and family enjoy our theme parks the way you want to.”
We can’t wait for this access to return. Will you be using the all-new Park Hopper pass next year? Tell us your thoughts in the Facebook comments!
