    How do I add a Park hopper if I already purchased for a future date? Thanks

    Hi Michele! We are so happy to have you here at planDisney. Consider us your Disneyland Resort vacation planning sidekicks ... the Hei Hei to your Moana, if you will! Ok, we might be able to offer a bit more than just comic relief, but you get the idea!

    Ok, let's hop aboard and voyage our way through these waters to get you to the Happiest Place on Earth! I can see that you are planning to head to the parks in just a few days AND that you are looking to extend that magic with the ability to hop between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. You are going to love having the freedom to bounce between the two as much as you like after 1 p.m. that day, especially if you have added Genie+ to your ticket. This opens up 19 Lightning Lanes that you can schedule across both parks as you move through your day. Seeing as it only takes less than a minute to walk from gate to gate, you'll be able to make those return times faster than you can say Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! 

    The good news is that you are able to upgrade your One Park Per Day ticket to a Park Hopper ticket! Technically, upgrades need to be done in person at the Main Entrance Ticket Booth. The one caveat here is that you will be subject to same-day availability for theme park reservations. There are separate pools of reservations for each ticket type, so before you release your One Park Per Day reservation, double-check that there is availability for those Park Hopper tickets. You can take a peek at the theme park reservation calendar as you get closer to your date to see how things are going. As of today, there is still availability! This calendar updates live as Guests make changes, but note it is subject to change. I'm going to dig deep into the powers of the Heart of Te Fiti and hope that the calendar stays open for you!

    You might also want to consider giving the Guest Services team a call ahead of your arrival. I like this option as a way of speaking to a Cast Member directly about your particular situation, especially with your park day just around the corner. You never know what kind of pixie dust they may have on hand that day!
    I can see that the wind in our sails is starting to calm and we are coasting into shore, Michele! With your trip so close, I spy the line where the sky meets the sea ... I mean, castle ... just over the horizon! If you look real close, you can make out the Disneyland Forever fireworks finale lighting up the sky just above Sleeping Beauty Castle! I sure hope you plan on taking in some of the Nighttime Spectaculars during your trip. My personal favorite is the Main Street Electrical Parade. This extra-special edition is only floating down Main Street, U.S.A. for a limited time in celebration of its 50th Anniversary! I love the nostalgic memories of watching it with my parents. Getting to share that experience now with my own kids and seeing their eyes light up with wonder is just something I will never forget! And that new finale float is not to be missed! Possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen - and it's a fun game to see how many characters you can spot!

    I can't wait to see how far you will go to discover the magic, Michele!
