    I have a ticket and reservation for Animal kingdom. Can I come in the morning and leave for lunch then return to the same park that night?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Afton. I'm so glad you stopped by with this great question! Let's get you set for a wild adventure at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park this weekend.

     With valid admission and a Theme Park Reservation at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park already in place, you're well-prepared for your visit. You may certainly leave the park for lunch and then return later that day. In fact, that's what my family usually does when we visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! Our most favorite restaurant in all of Walt Disney World Resort is Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village. This unique dining location is super easy to get to from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, so we leave the park to go enjoy a meal at Sanaa (the Indian-style Bread Service is a must!), and then return to the park for the evening.

     Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is especially magical in the evening hours. Be sure to visit Pandora - the World of Avatar after the sun has set. The Valley of Mo'ara comes alive with bioluminescent flora and fauna at night! It's not to be missed. 

     I hope this was helpful, Afton. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
