    Hello, if I pay for parking in the Disneyland parking area (Mickey, Pluto, Toy Story etc) if I leave the park to return to our hotel for a break can I get back in or do I have to pay again?

    Hello there, Tara, and welcome to planDisney!

    You must be getting so excited about your visit next month! I am happy to report that you can leave and return to the Disneyland Resort theme park parking with the same vehicle on the same day. Make sure to hang on to your original receipt from your first entry into the Disneyland Parking area for the day, as a Cast Member will ask to see it upon your return. Please note that all policies are subject to change.

    Tara, your visit will coincide with this year's Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival (March 1-April 22) - one of the tastiest times of the year at the Disneyland Resort. The Disney Parks Blog just released the Foodie Guide for the event and the food options look simply delectable. I love the Foodie Guides because they help me scope out my next favorite food. The Carbonara Garlic Mac & Cheese from D-Lish caught my eye! 

    My last tip is to download the Disneyland Mobile App before your visit. Within the app is a handy Car Locator feature that has been a lifesaver during my most recent visits. My planDisney Pal Jennifer B. recently did a feature on it over on the planDisney Instagram - you should check it out!

    Thanks again for stopping by! Please come back by with any other planning questions, Tara.
