    Hi there! Is there a chance that DCA will allow magic key holder guests to enter before 1pm? Our friends are starting their day at DCA and we start at DL, so we want to meet up with them as soon as possible.

    Hello, Helen,

    We love meeting up with friends at the Disneyland Resort too. It’s fun to share the magic with others. At this time, the number of Guests able to visit each theme park is being managed by the theme park reservation system. To help with the management of attendance, Guests with Park Hopper theme park tickets or Disneyland Resort Magic Keys may choose to hop over to the other theme park after 1:00 PM, subject to park capacity.

    I understand that modifying theme park reservations has been a little challenging lately. But if you are interested in making a change of park selection, I recommend watching the Magic Key Access Calendar very closely. For our upcoming visit to enjoy the Lunar New Celebration, we were fortunate enough to notice theme park reservation inventory become available to allow us to switch to the other park where a family member had made a reservation.

    During another recent visit, we had lunch reservations at Carnation Cafe while friends started their day at Disney California Adventure Park. It was unfortunate we couldn’t meet up earlier, but we found it was easy to plan our eventual meet-up around a specific Lightning Lane reservation time for an attraction of interest for everyone. On another occasion when friends were unable to join us in the theme park we were visiting, we made the most of the situation by meeting up for lunch at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in the Downtown Disney District.

    I hope you find a solution that works out well for you and your friends. And I hope you have many more opportunities in the future to enjoy The Happiest Place on Earth with your friends and family.
