    Hi Lori!

    Your trip to Walt Disney World early in the holiday season sounds practically perfect! The parks are so festive adorned with zillions of twinkling lights, thousands of poinsettias, and hundreds of brilliantly decorated Christmas trees!

    Your Disney Park Pass Reservation to the Magic Kingdom will allow you to enter the park in the morning, leave, and reenter at any time. The 2:00 pm park hopping time does not apply to your original park, only a second or third park. You may enter and leave the same park as many times as you wish in a day with a standard ticket; you do not need a Park Hopper

    Typically Guests may reenter the park they reserved for the day even if the park is not accepting Park Hoppers. You should not have an issue with dining reservations if the restaurant is in the park you have a Park Pass for. 

    The wonderful new Extended Evening Hours for guests staying at a Deluxe Walt Disney World Resort do require a park pass or a Park Hopper ticket. To attend the late night hours for the Magic Kingdom on December 15, you will need a park pass to the Magic Kingdom for that day or a Park Hopper ticket.

    Wishing you a very merriest visit to see Mickey!
