    If I have a park pass for one park (Epcot), leave for dinner (Yachtsman), and want to return to that same park (Epcot) after dinner, but it has hit capacity, will I still be allowed into the park?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Hannah. I love seeing a fellow North Carolinian stop by to ask a question here. It always brings a smile to my face. 

    Hannah, I think you'll be delighted to know that your park pass reservation gives you in and out privileges at that particular theme park all day. Even if Epcot closes to park hopping, it won't be closed to the people with the park pass reservation for that day. However, park-hopping has only closed one or two times this past year so I really don't think you have anything to worry about with that either if you plan on parking hopping at all during your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation. 

    Hannah, Yachtsman Steakhouse is such a wonderful place to have dinner. Have you been before? If not, get ready because you are in for a real treat. I love everything about the restaurant, especially all of the wood trip adorning the walls. It's really a stunning restaurant to look at and has a nice cozy environment to it.  Your meal starts off with the famous onion pull-apart rolls and they are melt-in-your-mouth. It's such a fun twist on a classic roll. I was just taking a look at the menu and I've actually had quite a bit of the current offerings and there isn't a bad choice. I would recommend trying the truffle macaroni and cheese as a side dish though, it's delicious. 

    Hannah, I hope this helps ease your mind about your plan for the day. It sounds practically perfect to me. After your dinner, I hope you'll make it back to Epcot in time to enjoy the new firework show, Harmonious. I was there the day that it debuted and I can tell you that it is incredible. You don't want to miss it. 

    If you have any other questions about your upcoming vacation, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. Have fun and enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

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
