    Does a 2-day park hopper ticket with genie plus need to be used on 2 consecutive days? Originally planned to go go Disneyland on Wednesday, DCA Thursday, but now we might need to go to DCA on Friday instead. Is that gap between the 2 days allowed?

    Hi there, Joanne,

    Going to the Disneyland Resort is a great experience however you make it happen. Even if you can’t enjoy your visits on consecutive days, you will find it a marvelous and worthwhile experience.

    Yes, standard Disneyland Resort multi-day theme park tickets may be used on non-consecutive days. You can check the terms and conditions of your tickets in the purchase confirmation email to discover the expiration policy. In most cases, you will find that a multi-day ticket will expire 13 days after the first day of use or on the expiration date indicated, whichever comes first. So as long as you use all of the days of your ticket within that two-week window and theme park reservations are available, you may spread out your visits as you see fit.

    To modify your current theme park reservations, you can start on the My Plans page of the Disneyland Resort website. Follow the Manage Reservation link to the My Theme Park Reservations page where you can use the Modify Reservation link to proceed with changing your reservation to another available date. You will select the tickets you wish to include in the modification. Then you will choose a new date for the reservation. You’ll notice that dates that no longer have availability will be indicated. Dates that are already reserved with your tickets will also show as unavailable. Select your dates then finalize the updated reservation. You can return to the My Theme Park Reservations page to verify the new dates of your visit. Or you can open the Future Plans screen from the ☰ feature menu of the Disneyland mobile app to look ahead to your upcoming park reservations.

    Tony’s Tip: You can get a lot done in only two days at the Disneyland Resort. Yet you will still find there is still so much more to experience. Nevertheless, you may very well feel like repeating some of your favorite attractions and entertainment experiences. Since you have Park Hopper tickets, you have the flexibility to go back and forth between the two theme parks to visit and revisit your favorites during your visit. But don’t let the proximity of the two parks fool you. (They are only about a football field length apart from each other!) With how convenient it is to walk throughout and between the parks, your daily step count can easily add up very quickly! So be sure to find time to rest as well. I like a nap back at our Disneyland Resort Hotel or a relaxing ride on the Disneyland Railroad.

    I hope you have a marvelous time, Joanne. Feel free to visit us at planDisney again if you have any more questions.
