    We're planning a trip to Disney World early 2023, and we want to visit one park per day, but still be able to go back to the hotel around lunchtime for a break, before returning to the same park later. Will we need Park Hopper? Please please no...

    Hi Anne, welcome to planDisney!

    An early 2023 visit to Walt Disney World Resort puts you in the heart of The World's Most Magical Celebration. This 18-month celebration kicked off in October and has already delivered two new nighttime spectaculars (Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom park and Harmonious at EPCOT), EARidescent treats, and the thrilling Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction at EPCOT. The magic is definitely calling!

    Bookings for 2023 theme park tickets open June 8. When deciding what kind of a theme park ticket you'll need, you are smart to think through your Disney days. When traveling with young mouseketeers, my family always returned to our Disney Resorts Collection hotel for nap time. When visiting during the warm summer months, we similarly like to plan a midday pool break. More recently, we've discovered the joy of midday lunch breaks at nearby Disney hotels. The Gourmet Grilled Cheese at Steakhouse 71 at Disney's Contemporary Resort is just a ten-minute walk from the entrance to Magic Kingdom park. In all of these instances, leaving and reentering the same park on the same day does not require the Park Hopper Option. The Park Hopper Option is only required if you wish to enter more than one park on the same day.

    Each Guest over the age of three requires valid admission, a theme park reservation for each park day, and a method of entry (MagicBand, admission card, or Disney MagicMobile pass). When booking your theme park tickets on, Anne, your tickets should be automagically linked to your My Disney Experience account, allowing you to check the theme park reservation availability calendar and make theme park reservations. If you'd like to receive admission cards in the mail, click "See More Delivery Options" and select one of the shipping options.

    A world of magic awaits you and your family next year, Anne. Thanks for making planDisney part of your vacation planning team. We're hEAR all yEAR.
