    During extended evening hours, am I able to leave the park and return during the extended hours?

    Hi Jamie!

    Welcome to planDisney from one North Carolinian to another!

    I am delighted to hear that you might be taking advantage of the extending evening theme park hours. As long as you are staying at one of the participating hotels that qualifies for entry to the park during extended evening theme park hours, you may enter and re-enter during the hours for the event. Keep in mind that access may be subject to park capacity and cancellation

    Be sure to check the park calendar for the dates of your visit to see when extended evening hours might be available. Remember also that if you have a ticket with the Park Hopper option and that ticket requires a theme park reservation, you need to scan into that park before heading over to extended evening hours at another park. Be sure to also review the virtual queue process during extended evening hours for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and TRON Lightcyle: Run.

    As you continue to make plans, I also suggest that you plan with geography in mind. We plan our advanced dining reservations near the attractions we intend to visit. On our first visit, we did not do this and too often found ourselves speeding through a theme park trying to get to a restaurant. One final tip - if you have little ones traveling with you, be sure to check the height requirements for each attraction prior to your visit. You do not want a disappointed little one in the park!

    Jamie, keep up the fabulous planning! If you have not done so already, consider matching shirts. We love matching shirts for photos and we try to do at least one matching shirt for the whole family during each trip. And, of course, drop back by if you have additional questions!

    Magic and memories,
