    Can we leave the park say at 4p and reenter at 6pm. We have a 2 month old baby with us and the day may be too long. We also have a 77 year old man with us who had knee surgery and will need to rest a bit. Thank you.

    Hello Ronel,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Don't you love the fact that Walt Disney World is a place that can be enjoyed by children of all ages, from 2 months to 102 years and beyond?

    Spending an entire day at a park can be exhausting even for the most avid Disney fan. I definitely recommend planning a break during the day. You'll be able to leave at any time throughout your day and re-enter the park later. Depending on where you are staying, you may even want to leave for longer than 2 hours. We generally leave in the early afternoon and take a swim break, or even a nap, at our resort before heading back into the parks. If you are local and just driving in for the day, that may not be possible, but you still might want to leave a little earlier, during the hottest part of the day. Head to a resort or Disney Springs for a leisurely lunch. Then you'll be refreshed and ready to enjoy the rest of your evening.

    As for taking it slow inside the parks, don't overlook the indoor shows and longer attractions in each park that give you a longer time to rest and often have short wait times. The American Adventure or Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival in EPCOT, A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King in Disney's Animal Kingdom, The Hall of Presidents or Carousel of Progress in Magic Kingdom, and Walt Disney Presents or A Frozen Sing Along Celebration in Disney's Hollywood Studios are all great places to escape when you need to sit for a moment. 

    Your little one will probably be able to do a lot of sleeping in the stroller, but be sure to check out the Baby Care Centers in each park. These fully staffed, air-conditioned spaces are a perfect spot for feeding your baby, changing a diaper, or just taking a break from the excitement of the park. 

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
