Disney holiday celebration ‘reimagined’ as COVID-19 pandemic continues

Disney holiday celebrations start on November 6.

Next year is already looking brighter for Disney goers. 

On Friday, Walt Disney World Resort announced its Orlando, Fla., theme park is bringing back the beloved Park Hopper program starting on Jan. 1, 2021. 

Tickets or annual passes with the Park Hopper perk allows guests to visit multiple Disney Parks – including Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT– on the same day. 

However, Disney is implementing some new modifications amid the COVID-19 pandemic to continue its “ongoing focus on health and safety,” the company said in a statement. 

Guests will only be allowed to hop between parks from 2 p.m. until closing, and will have to make a reservation to the first park they plan to visit in the day.

Here’s how Disney World, Six Flags and more US theme parks are celebrating the holidays

“These modifications are designed to help us continue managing attendance in a way that fosters physical distancing,” Disney said in a statement.  “Additionally, other enhanced health and safety measures remain in effect, including face coverings required for all guests ages two and up.”

In October, the Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek said it will continue to cap attendance at the Florida theme park at 25% until there is new guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Restoring the Park Hopper experience is part of Disney World’s phased reopening.
