    We have a park reservation for Epcot on New Year’s Eve. We were planning on going in the morning and afternoon and have dining reservations outside the park at 7:30. Are we guaranteed re-entry back in to Epcot if we come back around 10 or 10:30pm?

    Hi Thomas!

    The holidays are so festive at Walt Disney World! The parks are decked out in zillions of twinkling lights, thousands of bright red poinsettias, and hundreds of brilliantly decorated Christmas trees. I adore the Mickey shaped wreaths that adorn the lampposts.

    Thomas, your park reservation is valid for the entire day. You may leave for dinner, reenter, and ring in 2022 at Epcot. Your park reservations mean you are included in the day's count and your park ticket includes the ability to leave and return. On an especially busy day such as New Year's Eve, I would want a bit of reassurance, so you would find me checking with a Cast Member about returning when I exited for dinner. The World Showcase is hosting New Year's Eve countdown fireworks at 11:54, so you've picked a fabulous park to start 2022 in!

    Wishing you a wonderful visit to see Mickey and a happy 2022!
