    I have a young one that will need a nap in the afternoon, so with a 4 day base ticket can I leave in the middle of the day and return to the same park later after nap time?

    Hello, Kathy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you so much for sending us your great question regarding traveling with little ones to Walt Disney World® Resort. You truly have come to the right place; having traveled with all three of my children from the infant stage and beyond, I am happy to be helping you today. 

    You can absolutely leave the theme parks for nap time and then return after everyone has rested. In fact, I highly recommend it to avoid those midday meltdowns. Not only will your prince or princess appreciate the break, you will, too. 

    The only stipulation is, as you mentioned, you will need to return to the same theme park you left as a base ticket holder. Really, with a little one in-tow, visiting one park each day is all you need. My suggestion is to arrive early to avoid long lines, leave during the warm, crowded afternoon hours, and then return for all the nighttime fun. 

    The best part, with planning tools available like FastPass+, online dining reservations, and the My Disney Experience App for your smartphone, making and modifying plans around your schedule is easy to do.
    This makes vacationing with little ones considerable more magical. 

    I hope this helps, Kathy! Please let me know if you have any additional questions on having fun with your little one (additional video link).
