    Will I receive a paper ticket when I scan into the park? I like collecting my disneyland tickets :)

    Hello and welcome back to planDisney, Tatyanna. It sounds like you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort soon and we're delighted to help you prepare. Thanks for coming back to share your question with us. 

    I love having keepsakes, like paper theme park tickets, to take home with me to remember my magical time at the Happiest Place on Earth. The last time I visited with my husband (who had a one-day theme park ticket), we were not issued a paper ticket at the turnstile upon entering. I chatted with a Cast Member who shared that the theme parks are (for the most part) operating with paperless tickets. They shared that if you call to order and purchase your tickets over the phone, you will receive a paper ticket as they are sent in the mail to you. Otherwise, your ticket in the Disneyland app or printed from your email confirmation is what you will use during your visit. 

    I'm sorry to share this not-so-magical news, however, I have some other suggestions for keepsakes to remember your time at the Disneyland Resort. First, you can visit either City Hall in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park to request a complimentary "I'm Celebrating:" button. You can have the Cast Member fill in the blank with whatever your heart desires. Photographs of your Disney day always make the best keepsakes in my personal opinion. I love looking back fondly on all of the memories I've made during my magical visits. If you're looking for something else tangible to take home with you, might I suggest paying a visit to Esmeralda in the Penny Arcade on Main Street, U.S.A. to collect a paper fortune card. If you download the Play Disney Parks app, you'll find the feature to collect a card at no cost. They make a great keepsake and there are several different cards to collect. 

    Well, Tatyanna, I hope I was able to provide some other ideas to make your visit memorable as well as have something to take home to remember it. Please come back to visit us again with any other questions you might have. Here's wishing you a most magical visit!
