    Hello! We plan on taking my son for his 4th birthday in May. Being that we would love for him to experience the fireworks at night, I don't think he will last being there all day. Is it possible to leave the park to rest and then return later?

    Hi Mindy!

    My heart filled with joy thinking about your son experiencing the fireworks at the most magical place on earth! When you see his little face light up as the fireworks explode in the sky, you will be flooded with emotions and will remember that special moment for a lifetime.

    Mindy, you will be happy to hear that you can absolutely leave the park midday and go back at night. In fact, one of my favorite things to do is wake up early and arrive at the parks upon rope drop. This allows me to experience the attractions with fewer crowds. I then go back to my Walt Disney World Resort Hotel at midday and go to the pool, relax, and take it easy. I recharge and go back to the park at night for the fireworks and nighttime entertainment

    Harmonious at EPCOT is incredible. The show brings Disney movies to life with music, lights, lasers, and fireworks on the water. Consider booking the Rose & Crown Fireworks Dining Package for an amazing view. Disney Enchantment at Disney's Magic Kingdom is also incredible! Your little guy will love watching Cinderella Castle come to life! 

    You may also find this Planning for Preschool & Little Ones Guide helpful as you plan your trip. There is some great information about visiting the parks with little ones.

    When you arrive, make sure to ask for a celebration button so your little guy will hear happy birthday greetings all day long! You can also make an advanced dining reservation at a character dining experience, such as Chef Mickey's, to celebrate his birthday. Make a note on the reservation that you are celebrating his birthday, he may even receive a special treat! 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
