Has anyone posted the DPB article:

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/bl...-january-2021/

Under step 4 it says “the ability to visit another park will be subject to the park’s capacity limitations”.

It also says that the park hopping hours can vary, so if one park isn’t emptying out they may move the time to more like 4pm or even later.

So for example, if BGs for Rise are delayed there maybe more people lingering at DHS than expected so it may not be available for park hopping.

Similarly, if Ratatouille opens near the beginning of the expected timeframe (March to June) it could make Epcot much busier; that could play havoc with people who have dinner booked. (Obviously Epcot’s capacity though is pretty high which is why I think it will only start being a problem when Rat opens).

November 7 the wait for MMRR was 120 minutes. We just walked on by and hopped in a short line for beverages. The girls in front of us were purchasing beverages to take back to the MMRR line where their family was waiting (excuse us, we're joining our family ahead - LOL).

We went mid-november. We really missed fastpass. We barely rode anything as we do not really have a deep tolerance for long lines. For us, while we will still go and overall the trips are relaxing, fastpass has by far been our favorite feature. 3 rides + a handful of shorter queue length is all we need.

We have a big family event in March, I am praying that they add it back in.

The US site includes this about park to park transportation, which I assume means the Epcot monorail line will start running again at least around 2pm.

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

Link is to the U.K. site but should take most of you to the equivalent US page including that statement (the U.K. site doesn’t have it yet - not that it matters at the moment for us).

You gotta have those food and beverage runners, they keep the family from going hangry and thirstgry
