Yes my title makes no sense. But have I gotten your attention?
My family is visiting 5/1-5/8 (my husband, daughter and myself). My mother was able to get some time off work and will visit us for part of the trip. I knew park passes would be limited, but we decided to buy the tickets and see what we can get. We did buy park hopper tickets, so I thought okay we can book her whatever in the morning (aka Epcot) and then at 2 PM she can meet up with us. Knowing her, she may instead decide to lounge by the pool. I know that you must visit your first reserved park in order to park hop, but what if we decide to cancel her first park essentially leaving her with no first park. When park hopping opens at 2 PM if there is availability to park hop can she then book a park and when we hop to a park, she instead goes to the park for the first time? One of the days there are 0 parks available right now, so if she needs to first use a park reservation in order to later park hop, how can she do so that day?
I feel so lost in this new park reservation system, I’m usually the go to Disney expert in my circle, but this is our first trip with the system in place so I don’t have all of the answers I need, I’m hoping someone here has experienced this and knows what we may be able to do to make the most of her short trip.
