    If I take the monorail from Disneyland to downtown disney and get off to have lunch, do I have to go through security again to go back in the park? Or is there just a place to re-scan my park ticket?

    Hello Christi!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for bringing another great question our way!

    When I’m ready for a break from the parks, I love to hop on the Disney Monorail for a trip around the Disneyland Resort! Some days I take a round-trip ride and other days I hop off at the Downtown Disney District. 

    My favorite place to visit in Downtown Disney is Salt and Straw! After your lunch, head to this ice cream shop to try a double scoop of Freckled Mint TCHO-colate Chip and Dandelion Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies & Cream! You won’t be disappointed! For convenience, I ask for my ice cream in a cup with a sugar cone on top. 

    Guests of the Disneyland Resort theme parks and the Downtown Disney District and are required to pass through security before admittance. So if you want to visit the shops and restaurants, then return to the theme parks after you’ve had lunch (and dessert), you’ll simply need to present your theme park ticket at the turnstiles to re-enter. You will not have to go through security again.

    Take advantage of all the Disneyland Resort has to offer and come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with additional questions!
