    Hello, I am a mother of 6 kids and will be visiting two disney parks and a water park this summer. I would like to know if i can come in the morning leave and come back in the evening? I feel my kids will be too tired to do a whole day without a break.

    Hello, Anna! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Are you just getting so excited? Your trip to Walt Disney World is right around the corner!

    I think you'll be happy to know that you can, indeed, leave the parks each day and return as many times as you'd like. If you have a one park per day ticket, you may leave and reenter that same park. If you have a Park Hopper ticket you can bounce from park to park in a single day as many times as you'd like. I actually do this a lot! I love to be at the parks before they open in the morning. If you can make that happen with your crew, you will be so pleased at how much you can get done in the mornings before the park tends to fill up. It's also a great time to get those coveted photos, like with Cinderella Castle in the background, without a lot of other people in the photo.  Around lunchtime and after my last FastPass+ selection, I usually jet back to the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that I am staying at for a quick dip in the pool. I don't know what it is about a pool but I always leave feeling so rejuvenated and I'm sure your kids would be all about some splish splashin' time after walking around all morning. After that, I'll clean up from my afternoon in the sun and head somewhere for dinner. After dinner I'll typically head back to the parks for more attractions and the evening firework show. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and can plan your days utilizing Extra Magic Hours, this will greatly benefit you especially if you are wanting to leave during the day. Extra Magic Hours are only open to Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and that drastically cuts the crowds in the morning and the evening hours. 

    I hope this helps you plan your day a little bit better. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask. Have such a great time!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
