    If I buy a one-day one-park ticket for me, my husband and my daughter....are we able to leave the park during the day and re-enter the same day (say if we want to go nap her or leave her with relatives and come back adults only for fireworks later)?

    Hiya, Kelcey!

    Welcome to planDisney and greetings from a fellow Buckeye!  I'm so glad you've stopped by with your question today.  The final countdown is officially on –– you're less than 30 days away from arriving at Walt Disney World Resort!  While you're checking last-minute items off your planning to-do list, now is a great time to take a peek at the My Disney Experience mobile app to be sure you've made a Disney Park Pass reservation for each day that you plan to visit a Walt Disney World theme park. You can easily check for your reservations by tapping "Future Plans" in the main menu of the app.  If you see your reservations listed, you're good to go.  If not, you can quickly make your reservations by tapping on the "+' at the bottom of the screen and selecting "Make or Modify Park Reservations" in the pop-up menu –– it's easy and convenient, just the way I like my Disney vacations.

    Speaking of easy and convenient, one of my favorite parts of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is how easy it is to return to our room in the middle of the day –– it's the perfect opportunity to let my tiniest people nap while my big kids hit the pool.  Once we're ready to return to the park, it's just as easy to do so. And the best part? With our valid admission and Disney Park Pass reservations, we're free to come and go as we please throughout the day. So, yes! You can absolutely re-enter the park with your 1-day theme park ticket during your upcoming visit.

    With little ones, I also recommend maximizing those early hours in a Walt Disney World theme park (after all, if your kids get up at the crack of dawn like mine do, why not take advantage of it, right?).  Because lines can grow longer as the morning goes on, getting to the park as soon as it opens –– something we like to call "rope dropping" –– can be a great way to enjoy a few attractions before the bigger crowds roll in.  If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel during your visit, you'll also be able to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry, which will allow you to enter any of the four parks up to 30 minutes before they open to the public each day (you'll just need valid admission and a theme park reservation to enter). Just be sure to show up a little bit before that 30-minute window opens if attractions are your top priority –– Cast Members will often allow Guests to join a queue before the 30-minute clock officially starts, so you'll want to be ready to jump in line if that happens.

    Thanks so much for visiting planDisney, Kelcey.  I'm wishing you and your family a Walt Disney World Resort visit that's filled with pixie dust from beginning to end!

    See Ya Real Soon,
