On Wednesday, Disney also announced a major change to its Park Hopper option, a feature that allows guest to visit more than one park per day.

Starting on Jan. 9, 2024, guests with a Park Hopper ticket or an annual pass will be able to visit Disney's four theme parks – Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, Magic Kingdom Park and Hollywood Studios – at any time of day during park hours. Theme park reservations will no longer be required for date-based tickets.

Since 2021, Park Hopper access was only available after 2 p.m. each day.
