    I have non park hopper tickets. Can I leave the park I am in and come back later in the day?

    Hi Kerri! You sure came to the right place! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Yes! Guests with valid theme park admission (Park Hopper or non-Park Hopper) can enter a theme park, exit the theme park, and then re-enter the same theme park later in the day! That is a smart park-going strategy to use! In fact, my family uses that strategy for most days of our vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    We like to enter the park early by taking advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry benefit for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel! That perk gives us a 30-minute jump on other Guests! We then ride as many of our favorite attractions as we can until around 11:00. Then we head back to the hotel for lunch, a dip in the pool, and even a nap! Then, it’s back to the park until closing time or until we’ve experienced all our favorite attractions!

    It’s a strategy that has served our Disney-loving family well over the years! I hope you find it just as effective on your next visit!

    Dreams do come true!
