    We aren’t staying in site, but can we leave and come back to the same park on the same day? What are your re-entry rules Also can we bring outside food into the park?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Ryan. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next week! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure.

     You'll be pleased to know that you may leave a theme park and return to the same one on the same day. My family always leaves the theme parks mid-afternoon to head back to our Disney Resort hotel for a dip in the pool and a bit of downtime before heading back to the parks for more pixie-dusted adventures in the evening! You'll have no trouble re-entering the theme park you were visiting in the morning, even though you're not a Guest of the Disney Resorts Collection.

     I have more good news for you - you are most welcome to bring food and beverages into the theme parks! Before packing your park bag, I recommend taking a look at the official Walt Disney World Property Rules. It's important to note that alcohol and glass containers are not permitted. Additionally, Guests may not bring loose ice into the theme parks. So if you plan on packing a cooler to keep your food and beverages nice and cold, be sure to use reusable ice packs or pack your loose ice in a sealed bag before placing it into your cooler. 

     Don't forget to download the My Disney Experience mobile app before your visit next week. It's magic at your fingertips! I especially love that I can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to place mobile food and beverage orders for my family. What a timesaver!

     I hope this was helpful, Ryan. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
