It does, if you are going to need a 3-day park hopper.

You will receive the full value of the new 1-day ticket in the exchange.

If the ticket was purchased at an earlier date, and ticket prices have since gone up,
be sure to USE the ticket to enter a theme park BEFORE you do the upgrade.
Then, just head to a Guest Relations at the park and upgrade the ticket that same day.
This process will allow your older ticket to become worth the current new gate price of the
ticket that day.

Just make sure these are not complimentary tickets, or something won at a charity event. Read the fine print on the back. It will have language on it that you cannot upgrade the ticket.

Otherwise if you have a regular ticket, you can upgrade to anything that costs more so you can do 3 day non-hopping.

If the ticket has a date range for validity, or is says CP, COMP, or Complimentary anywhere on the ticket it cannot be upgraded or modified in any way.
