    If we are staying at one of the Disney resorts, can we visit a park in the morning, return to the villa for the afternoon, and then return to the same park in the evening with our Magic Bands?

    Hi Gerald,

    Thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Absolutely! In fact, what you are describing is actually my favorite way to enjoy the four incredible theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort and beat the Central Florida heat at the same time.

    While I am not naturally a morning person, I always suggest that Guests rise and shine to experience the excitement of a new day in the theme parks. This is especially true if there are early Extra Magic Hours, an exclusive opportunity for Guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel to explore a theme park outside of normal operating hours. Then, we like to return to our Disney Vacation Club Resort for lunch and perhaps a quick dip in the fantastic swimming pools.

    After we are rested and ready for action, we head back out to soak in the beauty of our favorite places at night, and maybe catch Wishes Nighttime SpectacularIllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, or any of the other stunning evening experiences available throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

    If you have added the Park Hopper Ticket Option to your theme park admission tickets, then you should feel free to venture to a different theme park in the afternoon. If not, you can certainly still return to the same theme park for more exploration. 

    Come back and join us with any additional questions, Gerald. We are here to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
