    we are staying at Bay Lake 6/30-7/7, I read where the Magic Kingdon could reach capacity on the 4th of July, If we were to go to the Magic Kingdon in the morning and leave for the afternoon, would we be allowed back in for our reservations at Liberty Tree

    Hi, Claire!  If a theme park reaches capacity, they cannot allow anyone else to enter, regardless of there being an advanced dining reservation in place for that guest. 

    The Fourth of July is one of those days that seems to get more and more crowded as the day goes on, with people eager to enjoy the Wishes Fireworks on the holiday best known for fireworks displays!  If you don't think you can do a full day in the park, I would say sleep in a little bit later, but try to make it into the park by 11 o'clock.  It seems to me that on busy holidays, capacity can be reached by about this time of the morning.

    Your best bet, however, is to arrive at the park as early as you can, enjoy as much as you can, then find a nice spot to rest and relax IN THE PARK in the afternoon.  You can grab a table in the back of a counter service restaurant to enjoy a cold drink and a snack, or find a bit of shade and a bench somewhere.  It's a good time for a DoleWhip or a turkey leg!

    Have a great vacation!
