    If I do not have Park Hopper, can I still leave a park and return to the same park on the same day?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Joseph! I am so happy that you stopped by. 

    A general admission ticket without the Park Hopper option will grant you admission to one of the four Walt Disney World Resort Theme parks during a single day. I am happy to tell you that you may enter and leave the same theme park as many times as you wish during the day of your visit.

    Joseph, my family, often leaves the park to take a break from the heat and have lunch or an early dinner at a nearby Walt Disney World Resort hotel before heading back in for the evening show.

    If you are driving and paying for parking at the theme parks, don't forget to keep your parking ticket! If you show the parking attendant your parking ticket from earlier in the same day, they will be sure to waive you on through so you will not be charged twice. 

    I hope that this helped, Joseph and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical getaway!

    We hope to see ya real soon!
