When Walt Disney World Resort reopened in July 2020, Guests experienced a number of changes. New health and safety protocols included mandatory face masks for Guests age 2 and over, social distancing enforcement, and limited experiences.

Park Hopping was one of the pre-pandemic options that was suspended at Disney World for quite some time. Then, on January 1, 2021, the Park Hopper ticket returned for the property’s four theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Now, with the first Disney World water park — Blizzard Beach — reopening on March 7, the Park Hopper Plus ticket option is also back!

Park Hopper Plus is officially described as:

…visit more than one park on the same day, plus enjoy a certain number of visits to a water park or other Walt Disney World fun. A 1-day ticket allows one visit, a 3-day ticket allows 3 visits and a 4-day ticket allows 4 visits. Guests must make a theme park reservation via the Disney Park Pass reservation system for the first park they plan to visit. After entering that first park, Guests will be able to visit the next park starting at 2 PM until each park’s regularly scheduled closure. The ability to visit a park is subject to the park’s capacity limitations. At this time a park reservation is not required after the first park, however, reservation requirements are subject to change.

For each visit, you can choose one of the following:

  • Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
  • Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park (Currently Unavailable)
  • NBA Experience (Currently Unavailable)
  • ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (Currently Unavailable)
  • Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course
  • Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course – FootGolf 
  • Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course
  • Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course (Currently Unavailable)

As a reminder Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park remains closed at this time.
