How does the Eticket work

I have an eticket printed out for a 4 day hopper. It states that I can take it to a turnstile and they will give me an actual ticket. Can I trade the paper ticket in at the Grand California? If I am at the turnstile and I give them my pass how does the 4 day hopper work if I want to leave and re-enter? If I used it to enter I want to make sure they do not give me 3 “more days” since I will want to park hop on my first day. Where do they give me my ticket at the turnstile or do I have to go to customer service somewhere? I am confused

When you take it to the gate to get into either park, they will take your paper and give you a 4 day park hopper ticket. Your first day starts the second you are handed the 4 day park hopper ticket. You can definitely park hop that day and the following 3 days. Just be sure to get a hand stamp when leaving one park and going to the other

You're complicating matters. Take your eticket to the turnstile, they scan it, then scan a new paper ticket and hand it over to you. This is now your ticket. It will have how many days you have printed on it, so 4 day eticket = 4 day paper ticket.

When you want to leave for whatever reason, get a hand stamp. This shows you were here earlier and the computer will see that your ticket was scanned earlier when whey scan it again.

Not sure if you can trade out your eticket at the hotels... Maybe the Grand if you use the hotel only entrance into California Adventure.

Thank you. I am much more familiar with WDW. They do not have paper tickets at the turnstiles there. I guess what I am having a hard time wrapping my mind around is the turnstile person having tickets on them. Not having to go to a booth and stand on another line. Happy about this but just hard to wrap my mind around it.

If you are staying at an onsite hotel, you can exchange your E-ticket for a park ticket at the front desk when you check in. Your 4 days will start once you have it scanned at the gate.

It just pops out of their machine after your printout is scanned. It's pretty cool.

I mean, sure, WDW has machines that you slide your tickets in and they pop out elsewhere, while at DLR they take the tickets and scan them manually, but DLR has tickets that pop out when a piece of paper is scanned.


Have you read HydroGuy's "essay" about Disneyland for WDW vets?
