    We have the three-day theme park tickets with the water park and sports option. My question is, are we allowed to go to the water park, leave for a little while, and then return to the water park on the same day, like you can do for the theme parks?

    Aloha, Jennifer, and welcome to planDisney, where, like Stitch, we enjoy watching the sun set beyond the horizon. You'll have a magical time on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit, and adding a water park will surely be a highlight. I've chaperoned middle-school students at the Disney water parks, and the teachers had as much fun as the kids! But there's so much to do on a Disney vacation, and I understand you might have other activities that would take you out of the water park. Let's check the policy for diving back in after you leave.

    Jennifer, I spoke to a gnarly Cast Member who said you could leave the water park and re-enter it later on the same day. Keep in mind there's always a chance the water park could reach capacity or be temporarily closed due to severe weather, but on most days, you should able to come back in and enjoy another Stitch-approved Hawaiian roller coaster ride, also known as the Surf Pool!

    One tip is to check out the Beachcomber Shacks at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. These covered areas offer a shaded area with comfy seating for up to ten guests and include towels, lockers, cold water, and more. I've found these provide a convenient home base for your group, especially adults who might prefer sunning on the golden sand like Lilo. You can book these cabanas online 60 days in advance, so you are within that window. I'm sending pixie dust and ocean spray that you'll be able to book one!

    Jennifer, I hope you have the best time on your visit, and stop by planDisney with any other questions. You're O'hana now, and that means family!

    Magic awaits,
