    Ronald from AZ Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    If we scan our tickets and enter the park can we leave right away? We're looking to get breakfast reservations outside the park, but would like to enter so we could make lightning lane reservations.

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Ronald, and welcome to planDisney. Purchasing Disney Genie+ Service or Individual Lightning Lane Entry using your Disneyland Mobile App is a sure way to reduce the amount of time you spend standing around waiting for adventure. If you are like me you want to explore as much as possible.

    You may exit and re-enter Disneyland Resort theme parks as many times as you would like provided you follow the restrictions (or lack thereof) on your ticket and that the theme park is not at capacity when you return. We bounce back and forth from Disneyland Park to Downtown Disney to Disney California Adventure because everything is so close.

    planDisney Pro Tip: I recommend you budget at least 60 minutes for your meal. You should know that your Individual Lightning Lane Entry attraction has a 60-minute window (some Cast Members will allow you to check in five minutes early and arrive 15 minutes late for a total of 80 minutes). This gives you about 120 minutes to enjoy your meal if your Individual Lightning Lane Entry return time begins 60 minutes after your dining reservation.

    Ronald, I hope this information helps you plan the best Disneyland Resort vacation. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
