Moon Temple and Inka Bridge hike

As one can find on some older blogs, Moon Temple could have been hiked once you got through to Huayna Picchu. That was in times when you had to wake up early and queue for HP at the entrance gate.

Nowadays, to be let to hike to Huayna Picchu, all you have to do is purchase a special (MP+HP) ticket in advance.

The question is: How about the Moon Temple? Is the MP+HP ticket enough to allow you to hike to the Moon Temple as well? If not - what (or what else) is needed?

What about the time limit that is imposed for the Huayna Picchu hike and its effect on the full Huayna Picchu + Moon Temple hike?

Similar questions for the Inka Bridge hike:

It used to be enough just to check-in at the Watchgurd's hut and hike down and back. Is there anything new on this matter since the new system of ticketing has been imposed?

Thanx for the answers. :)

In regards to the Inca Bridge. In October I had a normal MP entrance ticket. To do the walk to the Inca Bridge I simply signed in at the guard hut on the path leading to it and signed out on my way back.

When hiking HP, you can also go to the Moon Temple, its on the lower road before you go up to HP

Can we decide to hike HP once we get there? We're doing the short Inca Trail, and our MP tickets are purchased as part of the trek. But we did not get the HP portion as we are not sure we'd be up to another big hike the next day....
