    Hello, I will be visiting next week, and we were trying to figure out what to buy: 3-day or 3-day Park Hopper. To save money, we were thinking the simple 3-day pass, but with this ticket are we allowed to enter one park, exit, then re-enter that same park?

    Hi Meghan!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, where I'd love to assist you with your Disneyland Resort question. I know how excited you must be, as your trip is only a few short days away! Since you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort theme parks for three days, you'll have plenty of time to make some unforgettable memories.

    I have some great news for you. Whether you choose a 3-Day Ticket with admission to one park per day or a 3-Day Park Hopper Ticket, you have the freedom to leave the parks and return back as many times as you'd like throughout your day. For example, this means with a one park per day ticket, you are welcome to visit Disney California Adventure Park in the morning, head to your hotel for a swim, then return back to Disney California Adventure Park later in the day. When you enter the parks in the morning, you will have your picture taken by a Cast Member at the main entrance of your chosen park. This picture will be used to verify your ticket when you re-enter the park later in the day. It's as simple as that!

    My family absolutely takes advantage of this ticket feature and loves having the freedom to come and go as we please. Sometimes we need to leave the parks for my son to nap in the hotel room, and other times we may just want to explore the unique shopping and dining options in the Downtown Disney District. My personal favorite shopping destination here is the WonderGround Gallery where you can see and purchase eclectic Disney-inspired art.

    I hope this helped to answer your question, and I'm wishing you the very best on your upcoming trip!
