    If I pay for Epcot parking, leave for a couple of hours, coming back am I guaranteed a spot? Not asking if I need to pay for parking again, I'm asking if there is a chance the lot would be full and I'm denied entry when I return

    Hi Charles!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!

    If you pay for parking at EPCOT, you definitely don't have to pay for parking again. While you won't necessarily be guaranteed a parking spot when you return, there is an extremely high likelihood that a parking spot will still be available. The parking lots at the Walt Disney World theme parks have a high capacity, so it's unlikely to have a lot completely filled. I also want to note that if the parking lot was filled, the park would probably be at capacity as well.

    With a Walt Disney World ticket, you can leave the park and return to the same park later that day as long as the park has not reached capacity. There is no charge for returning to a park on the same day and you can leave and return to the same theme park multiple times a day. The same holds true for parking at the Walt Disney World theme parks.
