Return of Park Hopping

Park Hopping is officially returning to the Walt Disney World Resort in 2021! Although this may be a modified version of Park Hopping, it can still help Guests make the most out of their vacation.

You can check the Walt Disney World theme park reservation availability calendar here! 

Here is how the new Park Hopping system works — Guests will need to snag a park reservation and visit the park they have a reservation for. Once 2 PM rolls around, Guests will then be able to go visit another park without a reservation (as long as that park did not hit capacity). In essence, while you can enjoy Park Hopping, you need to keep in mind that this is not a way around the reservation system. Read more details about the new Park Hopping system here.

Park Hopping is a great way to make the most of your time at Disney World, especially if you are tight on time but want to visit all four parks. This ability to jump between theme parks helps you get the most “bang for your buck” and can help you save some cash on tickets during your vacation. Take advantage of Walt Disney World bringing back the ability to Park Hop on your WDW vacation in 2021!

Room Discounts

Disney is currently offering big discounts for stays at Walt Disney World in 2021. Currently, if you book a stay at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels through March 15th you can save up to 35% on a room from January 3rd through April 17th!

Disney does not typically offer such steep discounts to its pricey vacation destination so take advantage of these offers while you can.

Disney is making it increasingly enticing to joining their version of a timeshare program called Disney Vacation Club. While it may not be the best choice for some, depending on your family and how you like to vacation this could be a great option. With lots of savings and perks of membership including exclusive discounts, it may be worth checking out for long-term savings if you are an avid Disney goer.
