    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.

    agreed. my point exactly. :thumbsup2
    every time they move a brick, paint a wall someone is always grumbling.
    im don't directing this at anyone or anybody just grumbling! :lmao:
    I guess I just don't get it. why do people aggravate them self so much?
    we also went to the jersey shore when I was a kid.(LBI :thumbsup2)
    it just don't appeal to me anymore. nothing wrong with it, glad a lot of people still go and love the beach, but for me if I never sit on another beach the rest of my life I could care less. but I don't hang on the beach board sites and bi%^$ about everything going on at the shore. :confused3 if you don't like it, just don't go, don't give them your money. people get all cranked up over a system that they are testing. they didn't come out, bang the gavel and say this is it!!! take it or leave it!!! :confused3
    I remember reading sites when harry was coming to "the dark side" it was going to really affect Disney.tickets sales going to plummet. (had to laugh when Disney bought marvel :lmao:) If I really cared I would go back to find them. do you recall when dvc built blt????? OMG!!! the world was coming to an end. now dvc is cvs, theres one on every street corner. :rotfl: there was name calling and wow!!!
    why do people aggravate them self! :lmao:

    I agree when it all first started with I hate FP+ and whatever I was like hey its in testing they aren't finished with the system there will be changes. Everyone was so oh I can't believe this and I'm done forever. I stopped commenting on those boards because I got ridiculed for saying its possible to only use 3 FPs and go stand in a standby line or do something other than a ride. Some people think its all rides and nothing else and if they don't get there 10 FPs the world is going to end. There was a time when FP was not a thing and people went nuts when they first introduces it people didn't think it would work now every amusement park has a similar FP system.
