Walt Disney World Resort has confirmed on the official website that transportation between theme parks will resume in 2021:

At this time, Guests may only visit one park per day. With this in mind, complimentary transportation between theme parks is temporarily unavailable. This includes temporarily suspending monorail service between the Transportation & Ticket Center and EPCOT.

Park-to-park transportation is planned to resume in 2021, with operations beginning each day shortly prior to the start of Park Hopper hours.

Since Disney World first opened its theme parks in mid-July, each park has required Guests to make an advanced reservation using the Disney Park Pass system. Furthermore, Park Hopping was been suspended for all Annual Passholders and theme park ticket holders, and transportation options were limited when WDW first opened. But with the return of Park Hopping comes the need for park-to-park transportation.

Note that at this time, it is unclear what transportation options will be available for Guests wanting to park hop in 2021.

This announcement comes after Disney shared this morning that Park Hopping will become available again at the beginning of 2021. We covered all of the details in this article, which we highly recommend reading before your upcoming trip.

Guests who want to learn more about park-to-park transportation are directed to this information page, which displays the following message:

Starting January 1, 2021, Guests who purchased a ticket or annual pass with the Park Hopper benefits will be able to visit more than one park per day, with some new modifications as part of our ongoing focus on health and safety. These modifications are designed to help us continue managing attendance in a way that fosters physical distancing.

We will set specific Park Hopper hours during which this option will be available. Park Hopper hours will start at 2 PM each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time. 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.

With the updated Park Hopper experience, Guests must make a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park they plan to visit AND enter that first park prior to visiting another. At this time, a park reservation is not required after the first park, however, reservation requirements are subject to change.

Please note that the ability to visit another park will be subject to the park’s capacity limitations.
