    If I have a park reservation during the upcoming holiday break, go into the park in the morning but plan to head back to the hotel for an afternoon nap, can I re-enter that same park later in the evening even if that park reaches capacity?

    Welcome to planDisney, Danielle!

    Are you counting down the days until you arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth? This is certainly the place where "laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever." Just remember: it's the second star to the right, and straight on 'til morning. Here we gooooooo! 

    Danielle, your theme park reservation is good for the entire day. Therefore, you are free to leave the theme park, enjoy a nice nap at the hotel, and then head back for the evening. In my experience, you should have no problem getting back into the park when you return. However, I should say that on very rare occasions, theme parks can be so full that they no longer let people in. Therefore, there is some risk involved. However, this is very rare. Therefore, I would anticipate you being fine.

    The Holiday season is possibly my favorite time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. I'm always in awe of all the festive décor, merry music, and seasonal surprises. I trust you'll have a brilliant time.

    Make sure you check out the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, Danielle. Last Christmas, I really enjoyed walking around World Showcase, visiting all the Holiday Kitchens, and trying some delicious food. During this festival, I adore the gingerbread ice cream from L'Artisan des Glaces in the France pavilion. Don't miss it! When it comes to entertainment, the Candlelight Processional is one of my favorite things of the year. I also really enjoy just learning about how different cultures celebrate the Holidays. 

    Have a fantastic time, Danielle. Thanks for stopping by planDisney!
