The Disney Company announced today that guests wishing to visit more than one theme park on any given day will have an exciting new option: the so-called “Mega Park Hopper,” which will give the bearer entrance to all of Disney’s theme parks around the world on a single day.
“Until now, if a guest wanted to visit multiple parks in one day, the options were limited,” Disney spokesperson Brogan Marshall tells Uncle Walt’s Insider. “If they were content to stay within the Walt Disney World Resort and its four theme parks, a simple Park Hopper option added on to their ticket would be enough. But the only choice for those wanting to leave the state of Florida was to either buy a Premier Passport, which gives unlimited admission to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort parks for a year, or to buy a separate admission at each location. And there were no multi-continent passes.”
In addition to the U.S.-based Disney parks, four in Florida and two in California, the new Mega Park Hopper is good for unlimited admission in a single day to the two theme parks at Disneyland Resort Paris, two at Tokyo Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland and the newest park, Shanghai Disneyland. Asked about whether it was a realistic option for guests to actually travel to and enter theme parks on completely different continents in a single day, Marshall demurred: “If a guest wants to start his or her day at Disney’s California Adventure, then head over to China to ride the Tron Light Cycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland Resort, watch Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot, then finish the day sampling fine French cuisine at Disneyland Resort Paris, this Mega Park Hopper pass will give them the option. It’s not up to us to say whether it’s feasible or not.”
As of the time of publication, the Mega Park Hopper is only good for a single day, and admission to Disney’s water parks is an additional-cost add-on. And the cost? “If you have to ask,” Marshall says, “you probably can’t afford it.”
