    Hello, my family has bought base tickets so if we were to go to Magic Kingdom one day but then leave for lunch reservations at a hotel would we be able to re-enter magic kingdom again after our reservation?

    Hi, Katya!

    You can absolutely leave a park and return after a nice mid-day break. Without the Park Hopper option, you need to return to the same park. It sounds like your plan is Magic Kingdom all day, so you are set to go with a base ticket.

    Except for pool hopping, you are welcome to explore the beautiful Disney resort hotels, so if time allows, take some time to look around or simply relax in one of the spacious resort lobbies

    When you return to the Magic Kingdom after a relaxing lunch, you will need to re-scan your MagicBand or park ticket at the touch points. Usually mid-day the lines getting in the park are very manageable so you should breeze through this and be back on Main Street USA in a jiffy!

    Have a magical vacation in Walt Disney World!
