    Can you re-enter the park if you want to take a break during the day if so do you have to pay for parking again? Can you bring some food, snacks or drinks into the park?

    You are certainly welcome to leave and re-enter! Many people opt to hit the parks early, take a nap during the hottest part of the day, and return in the evening. As long as you are returning to the same park, this is perfectly acceptable. (If you wish to return to a different park, you must have the park hopper option on your tickets.)

    Either way, you will not need to pay for parking again. If you are staying on Disney property you are able to park for free at any of the theme parks during your stay. If you are staying off-property, you pay for parking by the day, so your parking pass is valid for that entire day, at any of the theme parks.

    You are welcome to bring food! We always bring water bottles, and often small snacks for the kids as well. Many people bring a full picnic in a soft-sided cooler. Should you choose to do this and not have a stroller to carry it in, there are lockers available at each of the parks as well. Much easier than carrying it around all day!

    Have a great vacation!
