Well maybe, maybe not... they are allowing for park hopping after the 1st of the year with no reservation after 2pm. I do absolutely believe it had everything to do with Covid. It may or may not stay. They can revoke at any time.The reservation system is here to stay and has nothing to do with Covid. It's a way for Disney to control people flow and an easy way for them to cut their workforce, since they know how many expected guests they'll have per park per day.
