Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando says it's bringing back the Park Hopper ticket on January 1, with some restrictions.

(CNN) — Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando says it's bringing back the Park Hopper ticket on January 1, with some restrictions.

A modified Park Hopper option will be available in 2021 but will require visitors to make reservations for their first park and physically go to that park before heading to another, Disney announced in a blog post on Friday.

Park Hopper hours will start at 2 p. m. each day and end at the park's closing time, according to Disney.

Disney announced a phased reopening in late May before Florida and other Sun Belt states started to register significant spikes in Covid-19 cases.

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County, where Disney World is located, said via email Friday that, to date, it "has not seen any outbreaks of the COVID-19 virus associated with the local theme parks. "

Disney has been modifying its guidelines since reopening in July.

For instance, guests had always been required to wear a face covering, but days after reopening, the rule was adjusted so visitors couldn't walk and eat at the same time.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek, in a call with investors last week, said park capacity has been increased since reopening.

Florida's Phase 3 guidelines allow theme parks to operate at full capacity with limited social-distancing protocols if they choose to, according to the state's reopening guidelines.

In California, the original Disneyland park will likely stay closed for some time after state officials last month released guidance for how theme parks can safely reopen.
