    If I have a regular day ticket, can I go out of the park? If I go in the morning to Epcot can I return in the afternoon?

    Hi there, Gabriela! Thanks for coming to planDisney! I'm sure you must be excited about planning for your magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, so let's dive right into your question!

    Gabriela, with a standard theme park ticket, you are free to come and go to the parks throughout the day as you wish! My family often arrives early to tackle a few of our favorite attractions and enjoy lunch and some afternoon entertainment before taking a mid-day break to explore the pool and other amenities at our resort, enjoy some shopping at Disney Springs, or even take a nap to rest up for a late night in the parks! All you will need to do to re-enter the theme park is scan your ticket, MagicBand+, or Magic Mobile pass at the turnstile to gain readmission! 

    Depending on your midday destination, be sure to check out all of the complimentary Disney transportation systems that are available to move you all around the resort! From buses to the Disney Skyliner, Disney Monorail System, and Water Transportation options, no matter where you are heading, there is a magical way to get you there! And since you mentioned EPCOT, best of all, each of these transportation methods is available directly from that theme park!

    One last thing I'll mention is that if you do wish to visit a different park on the same day, be sure to select the Park Hopper Option as an add-on to your standard theme park ticket. With this option, you may enter a second, third, or even fourth park on the same day (and can still return to any previously visited park on that same day as well!) You might feel a bit like Tigger with all of that hopping, but it's a great way to see and do more if your time is limited!

    I hope this helps as you plan for your upcoming visit - please come on back to planDisney at any time if we can help again! We'd love to sprinkle some pixie dust on your plans!

    Magic Awaits,
