It’s been a great news week for Walt Disney World! Just in time for the holidays, Disney Parks Blog announced that more dining options are returning to Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. AND, even BIGGER, a modified Park Hopper option will return on January 1st!
Starting January 1, 2021, Guests who purchase a ticket or Annual Pass with park hopper options will be able to visit more than one park per day.
Here’s how it will work:
- Guests can make a park reservation for any park with a regular park ticket or Annual Pass, which includes the Park Hopper option
- Visit that first park on the reserved day
- Starting at 2:00 PM on the same day (subject to change – click HERE for the most current park times), you can then visit any other park!
- As of right now, a park reservation is ONLY required for the first park, however reservation requirements are subject to change.
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.
Other enhanced health and safety measures remain in effect, including face coverings required for all guests ages two and up.
And there’s more! Soon Guests will be able to dine at three new options at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
Beginning November 25, Woody’s Lunch Box will re-open at Hollywood Studios featuring classic American fare, old-fashioned soda floats and other “Toy Story”-themed specialties.
On December 13, The Crystal Palace will reopen its doors, and while our friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood will be taking a break from greeting guests, the restaurant will now be offering a family-style dining experience. There will be new individually plated entrées including crispy fried chicken with honey pot drizzle, fire-roasted prime rib of beef, fried cauliflower and more. Guests can begin booking reservations on December 1 by visiting DisneyWorld.com.
And just a few days later on December 17, Tomorrowland Terrace, will also re-open. It will feature a refreshed quick-service menu of seafood favorites, including lobster rolls and fried shrimp.
