LAKE BUENA VISTA, Florida — Guests to Walt Disney World can once again hop between parks, but there are a few caveats.

Guests can hop to another park after 2 p.m. on a given day as long as the park has capacity, Disney said in a blog post. For the time-being, guests need a reservation to visit a park.

The park hopping option returned on Jan. 1.

The resort closed in March amid the COVID-19 pandemic and reopened in July. However, Disney has laid off thousands of cast members because of the pandemic, and Disneyland in California remains closed.
