    Hello. I just wanted to know are you able to leave Disney and come back the same day if you have a day ticket only. I need to leave mid afternoon to check into our hotel.

    Hi there, Evelin, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I always enjoy helping my fellow Californians plan their next visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    I’m happy to report that yes, you are more than welcome to leave the theme parks at any point during the day in order to check-in to your hotel. Upon entering Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll have your photo taken at the Main Entrance turnstiles. This way, your picture will be associated with your ticket if you choose to exit and re-enter at any time. So, hang on to your ticket so you can re-enter after checking into your hotel! I also recommend adding your ticket to your Disney account on the Disneyland app. It doesn’t hurt to have it there just in case you misplace it throughout the day. The app is a wonderful handy helper inside the parks. I enjoy using it to check attraction wait times, find favorite Characters, make dining reservations, mobile order food, and use Disney MaxPass and Disney PhotoPass

    Since you’re spending just one day at the Disneyland Resort, I recommend adding MaxPass to your ticket. It’s a great way to make the most of your day! Spend less time waiting in line, and more time making magic! You can add MaxPass to your ticket using the app as soon as you enter either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. Then, start making your Disney FASTPASS selections from the convenience of your phone!

    If you're staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels and you prefer not to leave the parks to check-in, you can drop your luggage off and begin the check-in process prior to heading to the parks for the day. Then, you can have your luggage brought to your room whenever you're done having fun in the theme parks. 

    Wishing you Disney magic and pixie-dusted memories!

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
