    Hi, We are travelling to Disney World in September this year. I was wondering if we are not staying in one of the Disney Resorts, are we able to re enter the park if we were to leave to go and have a rest, then come back for the afternoon/evening?

    Hi Belinda

    Absolutely! Regardless of whether you are staying on a Walt Disney World property or in off-site accommodations, you are welcome to leave the park for a rest or a meal and re-enter later in the day. The only caveat: Unless you have a parkhopper ticket, you must return to the same park you visited earlier in the day.

    Bonus: Once you pay the daily parking rate, it is good for the entire day even if you leave the property. Just hang onto your receipt and show it at the parking lot entry when you return.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Belinda. Please come back often if we can answer other questions for you as you make your vacation plans. Enjoy!
