Yesterday, Walt Disney World released a slew of new policies to be implemented throughout the resort and its theme parks upon the reopening.
One of these new policies includes a theme park reservation system, where Guests will need a park ticket as well as a theme park reservation each day in order to visit. Also, it’s important to note that just because you are staying at a hotel on property, does not mean that you will have guaranteed themed park access.
Today, it seems new policy for park hopping has begun circulating among travel agencies. An email has gone out to clients with Virgin Holidays that reads:
“A new park reservation system
When the parks reopen, park attendance will be managed through a new park reservation system.
To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date is required. Reservations need to be made via My Disney Experience in the coming weeks. You can request one park a day. As customers won’t need to hop between parks, the hopper service is currently suspended.
This reservation applies for all confirmed tickets through 2020, so reserve your parks as early as possible to help plan your itinerary.”
Currently, Disney has not released how this will affect Annual Passholders and their ability to park hop. In fact, Disney has not released any official information regarding park hopping, so it has yet to be confirmed whether this policy will be in effect upon reopening. (So far, travel agencies have been amongst the first to be informed of any operational changes, however.)
