Park Hopper Returns to Walt Disney World Jan 1st 2021

Many of us like having the ability to visit more than one of Disney’s four parks in a single days. With capacity control that has been impossible to do since the parks have reopened. Well… if you have been crossing your fingers & wishing on stars for the return of the Park Hopper option, you’re in luck! Disney will be bringing back the popular option in the New Year!

If you are wondering what Park Hopper is, it is an option hat you can add to your Walt Disney World tickets that allows you to visit more than one of their four theme parks in a single day. With regular/base tickets, you can only visit one park per day.

Want more details? Read on for Disney’s official announcement…

As the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort continues, we are nearing another exciting milestone we know many guests have been looking forward to: the return of the Park Hopper® option! Starting Jan. 1, 2021, guests who purchased a ticket, package or annual pass with Park Hopper benefits will be able to visit more than one park per day, with some new modifications as part of our ongoing focus on health and safety.

With the updated Park Hopper® experience, Guests must make a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park they plan to visit (reservation requirements are subject to change) AND enter that first park prior to visiting another. Additionally, we will set specific Park Hopper® hours during which this option will be available. Park Hopper® hours will start at 2 p.m. each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time. 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.

These modifications are designed to help us manage attendance responsibly to continue to foster physical distancing. Additionally, other enhanced health and safety measures remain in effect, including face coverings required for all guests ages two and up.

As a reminder, guests with a ticket, package or pass that includes Park Hopper® benefits get the chance to see and do more during their visit, which could mean a morning on the savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and an evening stroll by Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park or starting the day living your Star Wars adventure at Disney’s Hollywood Studios before an afternoon traveling around the world at EPCOT. Please note that the ability to visit another park will be subject to the park’s capacity limitations. And, to help us manage attendance, upon the return of the Park Hopper option in January, only guests with a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – Guests visiting from another theme park will not be able to request to join the virtual queue.

Park-to-park transportation is also planned to resume in 2021, with operations beginning each day shortly prior to the start of Park Hopper® hours.

We look forward to starting the new year with the return of this guest favorite option!

Walt Disney World Holiday Festivities 2020

Walt Disney World will be bringing fun & festive experiences to the theme parks for the holiday season this year. The holidays will be ‘reimagined’ due to the recent safety measures. Although things will look a little different, the holiday celebration will continue.

© DISNEY

From Nov 6th through Dec 30th guests will be able to enjoy seasonal merchandise, food, entertainment and more throughout all four theme parks and extending into Disney Springs and resorts. This year Santa Claus will make special pop-up appearances in each location waving to guests and wishing them happy holidays.

Magic Kingdom will take on a special holiday twist with character cavalcades that include Christmas friends on holiday floats. Gingerbread Men, Elves Reindeer and even the Toy Soldiers will join the Main Street Philharmonic as they march through the park bringing holiday cheer.
Taking the place of the traditional castle dream lights, Cinderella Castle will become a colorful backdrop for photos when night falls. The castle will be transformed with a rotating series of designs brightly colored in an overlay of red, green and fold.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will not take place this year.

Animal Kingdom will have festive flotillas and I have no doubt there will be delicious treats offered

Epcot celebrate with holiday promenades, but the beloved Candlelight Processional will be on hiatus this year.
Starting a bit later on Nov 27th the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays will return with favorite holiday kitchens around the World Showcase.
The Voices of Liberty will continue to serenade guests with holiday music and JOYFUL will present a journey through R&B Gospel and traditional Christmas music inside the World ShowPlace.

Hollywood Studios merry motorcades will entertain guests and Minnie Mouse will still host her gathering at Hollywood & Vine, beginning Nov 6th, Santa Goofy will take the place of Minnie; both will be dressed in their holiday finest.

Disney Springs will spread their Christmas Tree trail throughout the shopping district where guests will discover these elaborately decorated trees around every corner. In the evening a magical snowfall will take place within Town Center, West Side and The Landing. More festivities and decorations will be expected.

Walt Disney World Holiday Festivities announced for 2020.

Walt Disney World Resorts will still be decked out for the holidays. The lobbies will feature the iconic trees and holiday touches. However, the gingerbread displays will not return to the Resorts this year due to physical distancing.

Don’t miss the holiday magic with lower crowds and lines this year!!! There are several special offers going on that make the price points very attractive and I’m here to help you find the best fit for your family. – Melissa, Pixie Dust Adventures Melissa@PixieDustAdventures.com

Walt Disney World Announces Fall Fun and Everyone can Wear Costumes this Year.

Fall Fun will begin on Sept 15th and last through Oct 31st this year and is bringing some exciting changes to Magic Kingdom.

© DISNEY

Costumes
I can’t remember the last time adults have been allowed to wear costumes to the Magic Kingdom. If you are an adult & you have always wanted to dress in costume to celebrate Halloween, this is your year! Get your costumes ready because Disney is bringing some Halloween party fun into the Magic Kingdom for the first time. Guests of all ages can wear their funniest, Disney-ist, most creative costumes in Magic Kingdom during regular operating hours from Sept 15th – Oct 31st.
Costume masks are still not permitted for adults; only children younger than 14 years old are allowed to wear masks. In addition, all guests are required to wear approved face coverings during their visit.

Halloween Characters
This year there will be more bewitching surprises than we expected. That includes a special Halloween-themed cavalcade with Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and pals wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. You might even spot those rascally chipmunks, Chip ‘n Dale, in costume over in Frontierland. Keep your eyes peels for other Disney character friends dressed up and rising the horse-drawn trolley down Main Street. U.S.A.

Decorations
Pumpkin-themed wreaths will soon adorn the lampposts up & down Main Street, U.S.A., putting guests in the fall spirit as soon as they step into the park.

© DISNEY

Fall Treats
Autumn would not be the same without special fall treats, such as the famous Pumpkin-spiced Waffle Sundae at Magic Kingdom. More detailed treat information will be released in the near future. I don’t know about you, but I plan to indulge in as many of these treats that are just as adorable as they are flavorful.

Fall Merchandise
Festive Halloween-themed merchandise will be available in select locations around the park. There will be a new spirit jersey, Loungefly backpack and Minnie Mouse headband, along with a larger selection of apparel inspired by Disney Villains.

Photopass
Halloween inspired photos will return at Photopass locations throughout the parks. Beware, happy haunts may materialize in the pictures!

IMPORTANT
Guests will be required to wear approved face coverings throughout the parks & resorts
Park Pass reservations are still required to get entry into the theme parks

Luggage Delivery Discontinued with Disney’s Magical Express Bus

BREAKING NEWS: Walt Disney World has announced that they will no longer provide luggage delivery service from the Orlando airport to the Walt Disney World Resorts. Beginning on July 16th, 2020 guests will now need to stop at baggage claim to pick up their bags prior to taking the Magical Express bus to their Resort.

How long will this last? There does not appear to be an end dates we all fear that this will be a permanent change along with the discontinuation of complimentary MagicBands. I would like to believe that this change was brought on in an effort to avoid more hands touching luggage than necessary. I also understand that that Disney is trying to survive the economic impact that has been caused by COVID-19 and I have no doubt that this will be a financial savings for them. Will the magic as we knew it ever return? It could possible take years to recover and hopefully when it does, it will be better than ever.

Disney’s official statement is as follows:


Beginning July 16, 2020, luggage delivery service will not be provided for those arriving to and departing from Orlando International Airport. Guests who choose to use Disney’s Magical Express will be responsible for picking up any of their checked luggage from the airport’s baggage claim area and taking it to the motor coach, so that it can be loaded for transport to their Disney Resort hotel.

Please know that Guests’ luggage will travel with them to their Disney Resort hotel.Luggage assistance will be available at the front of Disney Resort hotels, including luggage storage and/or transport to the room. Upon their departure, Guests should ensure their luggage is with them and loaded onto the motor coach so they can check it in with their airline once they reach the airport. The resort airline check-in service will not be offered at this time.

Official check-in time at Walt Disney World Resorts is 4:00pm, but if you arrive earlier, and your room is not ready, you can leave your bags with the bell desk in order to begin your Disney vacation.

Remember to check-in for your stay through your My Disney Experience account. Doing this before you arrive will assist you in not having to stop at the resort desk when you arrive. They will send a text to your phone when your room is ready. Have questions about your stay? Use the new chat feature in the Disney World app to talk to a cast member.

For any avid Disney goers reading this, this will also cancel the resort airline check-in process that was previously offered on your departure day.

Like all the other Walt Disney World fans out there, I sure hope that this is a temporary change and Disney will bring back the magic once the reopening phases have passed

Reopening Guidelines for Walt Disney World and Orange County Theme Parks – Released by the Orange County Task Force.

The Orange County task force met this morning to discuss opening phase guidelines for the reopening of businesses & theme parks in Orlando, Florida. They are still awaiting input from the Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis & they plan to meet with him about these guidelines later tonight.

This does not mean that Walt Disney World & surrounding theme parks will open their doors in the near future, but it does look promising that they are putting guidelines in place to prepare for a safe reopening.

The Orange County Task Force said that these are only guidelines for the Theme Parks, but Walt Disney World and other parks are going to have to choose to reopen when they feel that it is safe.

From what is listed in the guidelines above, one can only imagine that there might be very limited, if any access to the shows around the theme parks because the requirement to remain 6 feet apart would be virtually impossible. How they control the guest capacity in the parks, hotels & restaurants is anybody’s guess at this point.

As we can see above, reopening of the hotels will look very different & if you enjoy your morning coffee, be ready to sacrifice that amenity in your room if you visit Walt Disney World in the near future. I would gladly sacrifice some of the various amenities to visit Mickey again. Would you?

Just stocking enough hand sanitizer to supply the number of people who go through the Walt Disney World restaurants, will take time. Thus, reopening may not happen as fast as we all want it to. Due to the dynamics of following these restaurants, there may be some food locations that remain closed when the parks first open.

For theme parks, he mall & Retail guidelines will apply mainly to Disney Springs and Universal CityWalk. Since a number of the stores in Disney Springs are independently operated, they may not all choose to open when Disney Springs reopens. They would have to follow these guidelines on their own.

If you are like me you are anxiously awaiting news of a possible opening date for the theme parks and wondering how they plan to actually enforce the guidelines. Unfortunately, the answer to that seems to be ‘wait and see’. We all have to watch the virus statistics & trust that the decisions made will be in the best interest of everyone. Nobody wants to reopen the parks more than the cast members & surrounding businesses that depend on them for their livelihood.

Keep following me on Facebook & more for up to date information as it is released.

We all know one thing… Eventually Walt Disney World WILL REOPEN. I’m excited for that day, I hope that you will reach out to me to help you plan your next vacation, and I look forward to being back in the parks again.
– Melissa
