    Hello. I know that in the past Disneyland used to allow guests to get a temporary pass to enter the parks and eat or shop. Is this still an option for dining?

    Hi Jennifer!
    Thanks for asking the Disney Parks Moms Panel about admission to the Parks at the Disneyland Resort!
    While there are incredible places to shop and dine inside the Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, guests must have a park ticket in order to visit those locations within the Parks.
    Some places like the Blue Bayou Restaurant inside the Disneyland Park are so popular, guests usually make reservations up to 60 days in advance. But again, even with a reservation, restaurants located inside the Parks cannot be visited without an admission ticket.
    The only exception would be for members of the exclusive Club 33, whose membership generally includes dining privileges at Club 33 without an admission ticket requirement.
    In terms of shopping, the good news is, many Disney Parks exclusive items can be found at the Downtown Disney District and online at Disneystore.com
    I hope I answered your question.
    Have a Magical day!
