    Can I add theme park tickets to a hotel reservation after I book the hotel, or do they need to be purchased at the same time. I want to make sure we get early entry to the parks and make sure they are linked, but the amount of days aren't lining up.

    Welcome to planDisney, Neil!

    Can you believe your trip to the Disneyland Resort is almost here? You will be visiting during the return of Pixar Fest, a celebration of Disney-Pixar films, friendship, and beyond! I'm most looking forward to "Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration!" a daytime parade at Disney California Adventure Park. Check the Disneyland App for showtimes.

    I understand that you have booked your hotel but have not yet purchased your Theme Park Tickets. Hakuna Matata, no worries. You can purchase your tickets separately from your hotel. I often do just this when I am planning my Disneyland Resort vacations. The good news is that you do not need your tickets and hotel to be booked together to take advantage of the Early Entry benefit available to all Guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels.

    Please keep in mind that each day, either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park will open 30 minutes early. To enter the park that is open early, you will need valid park admission and a Park Reservation for the same park. The schedule for early entry is as follows:

    • Disneyland Park: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
    • Disney California Adventure Park: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
    When you purchase your tickets online or through the Disneyland App, you will be prompted to select which date and park you plan to visit for each day of your ticket. These are your park reservations. If you know you would like to take advantage of early entry, be sure that your park reservations align with the schedule above.

    Neil, I hope this answers your question. We can't wait to have you at the parks real soon!

    Your Pal,
