    can you leave and return to disney park in the same day without having to pay an additional ticket fee? For example if we wanted to leave midday and return in evening to same park.

    Hi Nicole! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Taking a mid-day break from the theme parks is must for our family. Being able to enter and exit the theme park without having to purchase an additional theme park ticket is one of the best features offered. We often will return to our resort or hotel to take an afternoon swim, have lunch at Disney Springs, or take a nap. 

    So, Nicole, you and family may enter and exit the same theme park as much as you want if you have a base theme park ticket. A base ticket gives you access to one park for the enter day. If you have a park hopper ticket, you will be able to enter and exit any of the four theme parks as much as you'd like during that day. 

    Also, if you are driving and you're staying off property, you'll only have to pay for parking once. Once you park the first time, keep your receipt in a safe place. After taking your theme park break and you're ready to return to the theme park, present the Cast Member at the parking lot your receipt from that morning.

    Have the most magical time in and out of the theme parks. Please stop by and visit with us again if you have more questions!

    Happy planning,
