Exported PDF from InDesign rendering part of opposite page in spread

Hi. I have such an odd problem that is driving me crazy. 

 

I'm exporting a PDF for print for my mom's children's book. Everything looks fine in the spreads but when I export it as pages (print requirement) it is taking a vertical slice of the art from the gutter and swapping it on the other side! Really hard to explain. I've used this template for years with no issues. 

 

I've uploaded the full PDF. On the full spread pages there doesn't seem to be the issue. However on the pages that look 'spliced' together, the swapping happens. Open to any thoughts. Thank you!

You are seeing the inside bleed from the opposing facing page in your spreads. When the printer you send this to imposes the pages, they will handle it. Otherwise you can set the inside bleed to zero when exporting your spreads as single pages.

 

Talk to your printer though to see how they'd prefer your files to be setup. They will confirm for you.
