Ticket Question, MM, & Drop Off

DL Newbie who needs help. I just found out last Thursday that I am going to DL two weeks from today. That day I will be there by myself as DH has to work. Here are my questions:

I can buy a 3 day park hopper online from Disney. It says I can print at home and save $5. Is it ok if I print in black & white versus color? It also says to go straight to the gate. How can I use it for fast passes if it is a piece of paper? Also, do I need to print off 3 copies, or do I use the same page for each day?

It also says I get a Magic Morning with a 3 day ticket. I assume I just take my ticket to the gate and will have no problem getting in early? It will be a Thursday and I am starting out at Disneyland.

Lastly, if DH drops me off about 7am at one of the hotels can I walk around the lobbies and DTD prior to park opening? I am hoping to get the lay of the land so to speak as we have never been. Also, what time do you think I should go through bag check and get in line at the turnstyles? This will be Thursday, January 31. Not sure how busy it will be.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide as I have no clue what I am doing in DL.

The printout will be exchanged for a proper ticket at the turnstile.

You will also need to sign the ticket (or it will have your name printed on it) and an ID shown, and it seems they are taking pictures of people now at or before the gates.

There is a dropoff area along Harbor near the main entrance, if you would like to do that instead.

The MM on the ticket can be used as you plan.

Have FUN!

Printing in black and white is fine.
Also, you can wander around DTD and the hotels... Not sure how much will be open in the AM.
