    I understand we can leave our car parked at our resort after checkout to enjoy a park day, however, if we leave the park that day by car, can we come back to park at the resort (though checked out that morning) and return to the reserved park or hop?

    It's always a delight to see you at planDisney, Kameela! 

    Thanks for bringing your question our way. 

    My favorite part about my Walt Disney World Resort vacations is choosing the Disney Resort hotel I'll be staying at, and I'm thrilled to hear you'll be staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel! Guests can take advantage of perks like Early Theme Park Entry, and the legendary service and the magic of storytelling continue even when you leave the theme parks because you're surrounded by Disney magic at the Resort hotels.

    Kameela, I'm happy to tell you that you're considered a Guest of your Disney Resort hotel until midnight on check-out day. This means you're free to come and go and park your car at your Disney Resort hotel until then, even on check-out day. 

    In fact, you can even use amenities such as the Disney Resort hotel pool on check-out day. My family and I like to take it slow during check-out days, so we lounge, play, and eat by the pool. Most Disney Resort hotel pools offer a private indoor shower for Guests who have checked out of their rooms, or their rooms may need more time to be ready on arrival day. These are usually located nearby the resort's larger pool and come stocked with towels, shampoo, body wash, and conditioner. I recommend scouting one beforehand if you'd like to do the same!

    Wishing you an enchanting stay, Kameela!
