    Within the updated park hopping rules, I know can make a park reservation for Magic Kingdom, scan in, then park hop to another park at any time. However, if I wanted to return to Magic Kingdom later in the day, would I be allowed to (on a Saturday)?

    Hey Howdy Hey, Jordan!

    I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney today with a question regarding one of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort pastimes, park hopping! I think it's the best way to see all of the magic Walt Disney World has to offer - especially if you're hopping between EPCOT and Magic Kingdom Park aboard the Monorail

    Since your theme park ticket requires a theme park reservation, you'll need to scan into the theme park for which you hold the reservation first, but once you do, you can channel your inner White Rabbit and hop your way across The Most Magical Place on Earth, but unlike him, you won't have to check your watch. Because you have a theme park reservation, if you'd like to return to your first park of the day you'll be given precedent for reentry regardless of capacity. 

    Since you're beginning your day in Magic Kingdom Park, I hope you'll do your best to join the 7 AM virtual queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run. There's nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of it's takeoff. My husband and I recently received an early return time, and it was quite the way to start our day. Although TRON pretty much negated the need for immediate coffee, I couldn't help but grab my morning cold brew from Cheshire Café because my magical mornings aren't complete without a Cheshire Cat Tail. While my husband prefers a Lefou's Brew with a colossal cinnamon roll from Gaston's Tavern, in my opinion, the view of Cinderella Castle from the tables near Cheshire Café makes it a practically perfect breakfast location for a breakfast to celebrate birthdays and un-birthdays alike. 

    I hope this was helpful, Jordan, and that a wonderful day of magic awaits you. If you need any additional assistance, feel free to stop back by. I'm always happy to help!
