Disney World has expanded its MyMagic+ program to include theme-park guests not staying in a Disney hotel, a Disney spokeswoman said Monday. The program -- which allows visitors to make advance reservations for rides, attractions, show, meals and more -- has been in a been in a "test and adjust" period for months.

Updated: They are planning to allow more reservations and go across different parks, but no date is attached to that:
That doesn't surprise me, but it does surprise me that a cast member stated this weeks ago and was actually in the know.
That's logical. Seems that the one park restriction might undercut the incentive to park hop.
We had a desk clerk at the Grand tell us that they were working on a fix for that, but didn't know when. Not the week we were there, for sure...
We had five day park hopper and took full advantage. It took a little bit of planning to get the big attractions in, but having five days helped. There were a couple of mornings that we hit a park for FP rides then took off to another for standbys, drinks and dining. It worked out in the end, but those with only 3 or 4 day tickets would've had a rough time trying to avoid lines and park hop too. Those folks would indeed be better to stick with one park tickets, use FP at one park only, and then try to add on later in the day if there was availability. (the add on feature came on board halfway thru our visit.)
So it makes sense that a fix is on the way, one park tickets for most resort guests surely isn't Disney's objective.
