Same-Day Disney Park Passes Now Available for Walt Disney World Parks Previously Listed as Unavailable

With the return of Park Hopping to Walt Disney World, adjustments are being made to the Disney Park Pass system. Guests are now able to make same-day reservations for parks that are listed as unavailable.

This should prove helpful for guests looking to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which tends to book up the quickest thanks to recent additions like Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Similar to the old FastPass system, reservations tend to become more available later in the day as guests leave or ultimately not show up on they day they have a reservation for. This should also reduce the number of guests looking to make a reservation in one park for the explicit purpose of hopping to the park they really wanted at 2:00 PM, when hopping begins.

If you are indeed Park Hopping, Cast Members at Guest Relations and park-to-park bus stops should be able to notify you if the park you’re looking to hop to is full to capacity, or you can call the capacity hotline at (407) 560-5000. As has been in place since July, a Disney Park Pass is required to visit the parks.
