    Hi, if we chose NOT to take the Park Hopper or Park Hopper with Options but we wish to take advantage of the extra Magic Hours at the end of the day are we still allowed if our day would go something like this: Park, Resort, return to Park for extra hours?

    Hi Georgia,

    I'm so glad that you chose to come and visit us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel while you're working on planning your family's vacation to the most magical place on earth! We all love planning Disney vacations and are happy to help you with yours!

    Extra Magic Hours are a great way to enjoy an hour or two in the theme parks with a smaller crowd. They are reserved solely for Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, and if you are staying on-site and you'd like to take advantage of them, you'll simply scan your MagicBand either at the theme park entrance in the morning or at each attraction in the evening and you, too, will be able to enjoy the magic and fun! You won't need to have a Park Hopper Option ticket.

    Also, I'm happy to let you know that all Guests are able to come and go from a theme park as they please, so yes, you may absolutely visit a theme park in the morning, head back to your Resort hotel to rest or swim, then return to the same theme park later that afternoon or evening. Park Hopper Option tickets will allow you to visit more than one theme park per day, so if you'd like to visit a different theme park after your rest time, you'll want to add that option to your tickets, but if you're returning to the same theme park, your regular theme park ticket will work just fine.

    Thanks again for stopping by, Georgia, and please feel free to visit us again as you have more questions! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
