    Can you exit a park to go to resort and go back to the same park later in the day without park hopper?

    Hello, Gina!

    Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you so much for stopping by with your important planning question. Trying to plan a daily itinerary can be challenging but fun at times. There are days that you will want to get up hours before the park opens and head to your favorite attractions when the “rope drops.” There will also be days that you will want to enjoy the morning at your resort and take in the magic of Disney with your cup of coffee. Then there are the days that you are there to close the park down and take selfies in an almost empty park at the end of the night. 

    Guests of Disney Resorts Collection Hotels have the flexibility to head into a park early in the morning and by the early afternoon, you need a break. Maybe you are traveling with little ones, or not-so-little ones, who need a nap in the middle of the day. You can hop on a monorail, bus, boat, or Skyliner and head back to your resort for a quick nap, or a cool dip in the pool. Once you are refreshed and ready to continue on with your day, you can return to the same theme park to enjoy the rest of your day. You do not need the Park Hopper Option added to your tickets if you plan to return to the same park later in the evening. You are not even subject to Park Hopping availability if you plan to return. 

    Remember, all Guests visiting a Disney Theme park need a valid theme park ticket and a Disney Park Pass Reservation. I recommend making your park pass reservations as soon as you purchase your tickets because all theme parks have limited availability since the phased reopening. Making your reservations as soon as possible will allow you to get your first choice of park on the days you are planning to visit. I hope this helps with your planning. If you need anything else before your magical vacation begins, please come back and visit us again here at planDisney. 

    See ya real soon,
