As things are now, if I make a Park Pass Reservation for Hollywood Studios, then leave for a mid-day break, would I be guaranteed reentry back into Hollywood Studios later that afternoon (after 2:00)? I read on a disney parks mom panel that you were guaranteed re-entry because your reservation counts you for the whole day even if you leave for a while. But, that post was made months before park hopping was allowed again. So, do you think park hopping has made it possible for someone with a pass to get denied entry into their reserved park if it is late in the day and full of park hoppers?
It might depend on your ticket type, for example, if you have a one park a day ticket I don’t think they could deny you reentry to the park you have a reservation for. But if you had a park hopper ticket I don’t know?
I think we don’t know the answer to this. So far I haven’t heard of anyone being turned away yet. But I also haven’t heard guarantees. But I could be wrong.
I agree with others - this is a question that I haven’t specifically seen addressed. But since no park has reached capacity yet since park hopping returned, (ie no one has been denied entry) I hope it is a moot point.
If you just leave for a mid-day break then yes. A park reservation is good all day.
Now if you had hopped to another park I don’t know whether tapping in elsewhere would effectively cancel the park reservation “guarantee”. Opinion is divided.
I agree with @Nickysyme, your pass for that day guarantees you entry all day. If you park hop, then you follow the park hoppers rules upon entry into the second park.
I asked three different times on Disney’s site chat about leaving for lunch or a break and returning and three times was told by different CMs that yes, if you made your park reservation for that park, you can come and go.
You almost never have 2 CMs agree like that, much less 3, so I’m pretty sure that the number allowed to hop in will be based on the difference in capacity and how many people made park reservations for that park on a given day. (And if there are no park pass reservations available (as apparently Studios is looking for Feb 15 and 16 from another thread), there would be no hopping to Studios on those days. Unless a SIGNIFICANT number of people change their park reservation when they don’t get a boarding pass.)
Or they are allowing an extra 3-5% on top of the 35% capacity that Disney are publicly saying the parks are at right now.
I have no clue. They did say that hopping space would be based on availability and might not be available to all parks.
Wow, thanks. That is great intel.
You’re welcome! At the time I was going to do Studios and take a break for lunch at Beaches & Cream, since I’m not really stressed about getting things done in Studios when i do go as I only care about Tower, RnRC, Muppets, and MMRR. But I wanted to make sure I could get back in.
It’s a moot point for me now as I’ve dropped Studios from rotation for February, but I may use the same plan in July.
