    Do I have to pay parking again if I choose to leave and come back at the same park?

    Hi Katrina and welcome to planDisney!

    Since we are Florida residents, we always have our own car while on vacation at Walt Disney World, so we are very familiar with the theme park parking lots.  When you pay for parking at one of the four theme parks, you have in and out access all day as long as you keep your parking receipt.  This means you can park hop and park at another theme park as well.  We love to take an afternoon break from the parks, especially when it's warm out, and then return in the evening for even more Disney magic.

    I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile App for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation, if you haven't already.  The app has so much useful information including park maps, attraction wait times, dining locations and even a Car Locator service.  When you park, you can add your exact parking location to the app so you know exactly where your car is at the end of the day.  I can't tell you how many times we have wandered around the parking lot thinking we knew exactly where we parked, but can't seem to find the car.  You can even use the Car Locator at Disney Springs and the Disney Water Parks!

    Please stop back by and visit planDisney if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
