Park Hopping with 3 FP+ per park being reported

Not me, but there are a few people who've been posting on a Disney Addicts page that they've been able to Park Hop using FP+ this week when using the Disney App. They have been able to make up to 3 choices per park (minding Tiering rules still for EP and HS), posted screen shots of their apps showing multiple parks on one day, and have reported actually using them successfully. Hopefully this is not just a glitch in the app and will become official!

I just tried this on the my Disney experience site and it only let me select 1 park per day. But, I don't have park hoppers for my upcoming trip, so maybe that's why it isn't working for me. Maybe someone with park hoppers can give it a shot.

We have hoppers and it didn't work for me. It replaced my current selections with the new ones. Oh well. I hope it will work out though. That would be fantastic!

I do know the original plan was for disney to allow this maybe they finally will allow guest to do this. Hopefully it will be true and all guests with hoppers can do it.

I don't think there is any doubt you will be able to get FP+s at more than one park eventually. Otherwise, the park hopper option is totally devalued and very few people will add it. It's just a matter of time.

I think FP+ makes hoppers more valuable. If you think AK & DHS are half day parks, schedule FP+ for afternoon/evening at DHS and go to AK in morning. Won't have long waits at AK and you don't have to worry about TSM being out of FP when you get to DHS.

Can do the same with any afternoon park really... visit one park early with less waits then you have your FP+ already setup for when you want to ride at other park.

I absolutely agree. We don't buy hoppers. You loss a lot of time jumping and in the old FP system, by the time you got to the second park, FPs were gone to way out for the big rides.

But, if I could reserve 3 passes at AK in the morning / early afternoon and 3 FPs for Magic Kingdom later in the day, it would certainly make me. Consider getting a hopper.

I'm starting to notice a couple trends of the people I'm stalking who are using 3 FP+ each in multiple parks... 1) Some have said they added PH once they arrived at the park - not all, but it maybe for some this is a key. 2) It seems they may have made their second park selections day of and not pre-arrival. Though, the one guy who said he added PH at the park was able to make multiple park passes for the whole week the first day he was there, so it's still up in there if there are restrictions. Anyway, I'm excited if it works itself out!

I had a cm at the AK kiosk tell me because I had used all my FP at AK I could then hop to another park and book 3 FP there.
I didn't have hoppers so I couldn't try it.

That would work whether you hopped or not though. You would just stay put in the same park and enjoy the three rides that afternoon. If someone wants to hop then of course you can set them up in the second park.

Just got back from WDW last night. One day the FP+ kiosk people were slow so DH struck up a conversation with one while I was at the ladies room. He said that park hopping and more than 3 FP+ will be coming once they get the bugs worked out. He said maybe 4 or 5 FP+ per person.

I will say that the kiosks were very busy in the mornings and lines that would rival a space mountain or splash mountain. If I were an off-site person, I would be unhappy having to spend an hour in line first thing in the morning to get my FP+ selections.

First everyone is unhappy that they can only get three... and that you can't park hop... and that off site can't get any...and what about AP's... and then AP's get FPP, and then off site gets them, and then you can park hop, and then you can get more than 3.... When will everyone realize that this is in an evolving form and stop with the "I'm never going again"?

well Harry potter putting disney out of business is a stretch. But I agree with the PP as well.
