    We will be at Disney for the first time at the end of May. We are staying outside of the park. If we buy base tickets, are you allowed to leave the park and return to the same park later that day, just as guests staying in the park can?

    Hey Amy,

    Standard admission to any of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks will allow you to exit and re-enter the same park, regardless of whether or not you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  The Park Hopper Option is only required if you wish to visit more than one park per day.  We always make sure to take a midday break for a nap or swim. It keeps the kids (and the adults) from getting overstimulated or overtired.  We feel completely refreshed and ready to head back into the park for dinner and nighttime entertainment.

    I hope this helps, Amy.  May is such a great time to visit Walt Disney World.  The weather should be just about perfect!  Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your vacation.

    Have a magical day,
