    My BF and I have a trip to DL and DCA sept 17-18. We didn’t realize the park closed at 6pm for OOB. Can we upgrade our ticket so we can hop to Disney when the park closes? Thank you!

    Hi Kayla! Thanks so much for bringing your question to us at planDisney. We love helping fellow Guests find that extra spark of magic on their way to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I'm so glad you looked at the Oogie Boogie - A Disney Halloween Party schedule ahead of time so it was not a surprise for you when the park closed early for daytime Guests. I'll be honest, many moons ago, I brought my daughter to Disneyland Park for a weekday afternoon/evening of fun not realizing that it coincided with Mickey's Halloween Party - a Halloween party of days gone by. We were kindly ushered out of the park at 6 p.m. just an hour or two into our time there. I certainly never made that mistake again! 

    When it comes to upgrading your tickets from One Park Per Day to Park Hoppers, this can be done in person at the Main Entrance Gates when you arrive. Note that your theme park reservations are linked to the ticket you are holding, so upgrading to a different ticket type (Park Hoppers) will require you to make new reservations on the spot. Before making any changes, check with the Cast Member helping you to be sure there is availability. Taking a peek at the theme park reservation calendar, it looks like both the 17th and 18th are open, which is a good sign! Reservations are subject to availability, so just keep this in mind.

    Another option to consider might be to switch your park days ahead of time to avoid having to wait to upgrade and be subject to same-day reservations. The Oogie Boogie Bash is taking place on September 15th, 18th, and 20th around your dates. Perhaps you would consider making the 17th your Disney California Adventure Park day and the 18th your Disneyland Park day? There is availability as of today, but this can change at a moment's notice. All you would need to do is head into your Disneyland Mobile App, cancel your current reservation, and rebook the new reservations. You can do this by tapping the three-bar menu in the bottom right-hand corner and selecting "Future Plans". From here, scroll to and select the date you are going to change. You will need to do them one at a time. On the next screen, scroll to the date again and tap "Cancel Reservation" and follow the prompts until you hit the "Done" button and receive a confirmation email. It will bring you back to the beginning of the process where you can "Book Theme Park Reservations" and start anew with your new date! It should only take a few minutes from start to finish! If you have any questions in the meantime, you are always welcome to reach out to the Cast Members in Guest Services!

    In the week leading up to your time with the ghouls and ghosts of Halloween Time, I'd love to recommend taking a listen to Episode 3 of the planDisney Podcast - Halfway to the Holidays! My fellow panelists filmed this episode INSIDE the Haunted Mansion, so you know it's full of the best insider tips and tricks! It's a great way to get excited and inspired for your trip!

    Kayla, I hope this was helpful in your planning! If you have any more questions, come back to see us here at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
