    Hi! My name is Emma and I'm going on a trip to Disneyland in May! We bought the SoCal resident 3-day pass and I was wondering if we could leave the park then come back the same day without it constituting as another day on our tickets. Thanks?

    Hiya, Emma, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Spring has sprung, and it’s a beautiful time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth! I love helping my fellow Californians plan their getaways to the Disneyland Resort, and I’m so glad to hEAR that you purchased the SoCal Resident Ticket Offer! I’m also happy to report that yes, you may leave the park and come back the same day without counting as another day of your 3-Day ticket. In fact, every type of Disneyland Resort Park Ticket is allowed re-entry. Here’s how it works: When you enter the park on your first visit, a Cast Member will take your picture and digitally assign it to your park ticket. So, when you return to the park later in the day, simply show your ticket, and the Cast Member will check to make sure your picture matches, and you’re all set! Keep in mind that if you purchased the 1-Park Per Day Ticket, you’ll only be allowed to re-enter the park you were previously in that day. If, however, you purchased the Park Hopper Ticket, you can go back and forth between both parks as often as you’d like. 

    Also, don’t forget that this special ticket offer expires May 23, 2019, so be sure to plan accordingly!

    If you choose to leave the parks to explore Downtown Disney District, I recommend checking out the recently-opened Ballast Point Brewing Co. and Salt & Straw. Pop-Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration will also be open by the time you visit. 

    Wishing you a magical Disney day!
