On a day that you have a park reservation you will be able to go to another park after 2 PM without a reservation.

This is a great step in the right direction!

Great news! I am guessing that it is going to be subject to availability based on capacity.

OMG! Iím so excited. My guess is that the parks are much lighter from 2pm onwards. We usually do one park in the morning, take a midday nap, and then we go back to another park at 4 or 5pm. This is perfect for us!

I have no inside info, but my guess is that theyíll use the reservation system to set the initial capacities. Also, the parks definitely seem to thin out as the day goes on which is my guess as to why they picked 2pm. This wonít help for our trip starting in a few hours (), but itíll be great for our January and March trips!!!

Great news!!!! If DH gets to race in April, he'll certainly appreciate that! His folks are going next year too at some point.
So glad they're figuring out ways to get this back. Miss it so much!

That's our plan every day too! Lunch in one park and dinner in another.

Now for the release of the Annual Pass (with DVC discount, of course)

I am so excited about this and hope it sticks. Stay at BCV and I love being able to pop into Epcot in the evenings!
