    If I buy a single day ticket for California adventure, am I able to upgrade to a park hopper during the day after I’ve entered California adventure? We aren’t certain if we want to go to both (have a toddler) and would like the option to upgrade to hopper

    Hi Benjamin! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you found us to ask this great question.

    How exciting that you will be at The Happiest Place on Earth in just a couple of days! I think you will love Disney California Adventure Park! If you aren't sure if you would like to park hop, you can wait to decide based on how your little Mouseketeer is doing with your visit at the theme park. You can upgrade your ticket to a park hopper on the day of your visit by visiting a ticket window and paying the additional cost. Park hopping to Disneyland Park will depend on availability that day and the cast member will let you know if that isn't an option on the day of your visit. While availability can change, I just checked the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar, and as of this moment, it looks like there are theme park reservations available if you would like to upgrade your ticket to hop to Disneyland Park. If you decide you would like to do this, you can park hop as early as 11:00 a.m. 

    I hope you have so much fun making special family memories during your visit! Visiting with a little one can be so magical and I would recommend capturing some of those moments using Disney PhotoPass. I love looking back at photos of my kids from our vacations at Disney Parks. They might not remember everything, but I do and the photos are a great way to look back and reminisce now that they are older.

    Please visit us again at planDisney when you're ready to plan another vacation at the Disneyland Resort. We would love to help answer all of your planning questions!

    Wishing you magic,
