    We have single park + water park tickets for our trip in December. Does the park reservation last all day even if we leave? Can we go to Epcot in the morning, the waterpark in the afternoon, then return to Epcot for dinner?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jessica!

    Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year to visit EPCOT. It's so magical! The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is my favorite EPCOT festival. A magical walk around World Showcase at Christmastime proves it really is a small world after all. You'll learn so much about the different Holiday traditions around the world. I love tasting all the delicious dishes and drinks too! Oh, and definitely don't miss the Candlelight Processional. This awe-inspiring show will maximize your festive cheer. 

    Jessica, you'll be pleased to know that you can totally return to EPCOT later in the day. As long as you have theme park reservations, you should have no trouble. There are extremely rare occasions when theme parks become so full that they no longer allow people in. However, I don't anticipate this being a problem for you. So enjoy your afternoon at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.

    Just make sure you save enough energy to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind! This is my new favorite attraction at Walt Disney World. It's a huge indoor Omnicoaster that uses the latest technology to immerse Guests in the adventure. There are six different songs that are randomly selected. I wonder which one you'll get. Here's a tip: for the most intense experience, sit in the very back.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Jessica! See ya real soon.
