    Purchased the 1-Day peak ticket w/admission to 1 park & will be arriving around 10am, bt will have to check into a hotel nearby around 3pm. Are we able to leave & return without paying again? Would we hve to stnd in line again?

    Aloha Loriann!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Midday breaks are a must for my family, for toddler naps, sometimes a mommy nap or even just a break from the stimulation of The Happiest Place on Earth!

    I'm delighted to let you know that whatever the reason, whether it be nap time or to check in to your hotel, you are absolutely able to leave and return later in the day. Whichever park you choose admittance to, whether it be Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, when you enter for the first time a friendly Cast Member will take a smiling picture of you on a small hand held device. This links your ticket to you so you can exit and return at a later time. As you have purchased a Single Park ticket, you'll just need to make sure to return to the same park later that day. 

    When you return you will need to go through security again and you will queue at the entrance. I usually find that lines to enter midday are not an issue though so it should only be a few minutes before your back enjoying all the fun that Disneyland Resort has to offer!

    I hope this helps in planning your day. Please let us know if you have any other questions before your upcoming visit!

My name is Lindsey and I'm a wife, mommy, engineer and self-proclaimed "Disnerd!" I've always loved Disney and the joy it brings to so many people. I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
