    I purchased the latest ticket promotion. I noticed some people talking about leaving and then re-entering same park later in the day. Can you do this? Last time we went to Disney this wasn't allowed without park hopper.

    Hi there, Holly! I’m glad you brought that question to planDisney! That is one that we hear a lot with the 4-Day, 4-Park Magic Ticket and the 3-Day, 3-Park Magic Ticket!

    Both the 4-Day, 4-Park and the 3-Day, 3-Park Magic Tickets allow Guests to enter, exit, and then re-enter the same theme park later! 

    Holly, that’s a great park-going strategy! My family likes to arrive to the park early in the morning. We then stay in the park until around 11:00 and then head back to our resort hotel for an afternoon break or swim! We then head back to the park until closing time!

    Keep in mind that if you are staying as a Guest at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can also take advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry benefit! This allows Guests to enter the park 30 minutes before official park opening! I encourage you to take advantage of that great time-saving perk!

    There is an extra perk for Guests staying at a deluxe Disney Resort hotel! Deluxe resort Guests can also enjoy Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! This perk gives Guests additional hours in select parks, on select evenings! 

    I hope you find the perfect combination of how to take advantage of your time in the Disney Parks! Let us know if we can help with any more planning questions!

    Dreams do come true!
