    If you buy park hopper and have to leave during the day after visiting the second park, can you return later on in the day?

    Hello, Tatiana, and welcome to planDisney! Your upcoming visit is only a few weeks away, so I hope you've packed your Mickey ears and comfy shoes. And I'm so excited you're considering purchasing Park Hopper tickets because you will love the ease of going between the parks at Disneyland Resort. I often visit Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and while I enjoy Park Hopping there, traveling between theme parks does take some time away from my Disney day since the property is so large. But when I hop at Disneyland Resort, it's only a short walk across the esplanade to get from Disneyland Park to Disney California Adventure Park, Downtown Disney District, and the Disneyland Resort Hotels. So you've made a wise choice! Now, let's make like Thumper the rabbit and do some hopping!

    When you have Park Hopper tickets, be sure to make a Theme Park Reservation for the park where you want to start your day. Enjoy your favorite attractions early, and then anytime after 11:00, you can head over to the other theme park. After enjoying that park, you might decide to go to Downtown Disney for an ice cream treat at my favorite spot, Salt and Straw, and then you can absolutely head back to either theme park you choose. So just like Bambi's friend Thumper, there is no limit to how many times you hop in a day! 

    Remember that if a theme park reaches capacity for the day, you wouldn't be able to re-enter it. And although that rarely happens, you would be allowed re-entry once enough guests leave that park. Also, just so you know, Park Hopping policies and times can change, so check the mobile app for the most current information.  

    I know you'll enjoy the HOPortunity to experience all that Disneyland Resort offers, Tatiana. And like Bambi, you'll be twitterpated when you see how fun Park Hopping is! So please feel free to stop by planDisney anytime. 

    Magic awaits,
