    I am going to Disneyland and Disney California adventure. Other people in my group have separate ticket reservations that are not park-hopper. I would like to surprise them by changing their tickets to park-hopper tickets. How can I do this?

    Hi there, Mary!

    Welcome to planDisney! Your visit to Disneyland Resort is only a few days away. Have you started packing yet? I am a notorious overpacker so I allocate plenty of time to organize everything I may need on my trip. Before each vacation, I tell myself that multiple outfit changes each day are not necessary...but then I end up throwing extra clothes into my suitcase at the last minute. It's a work in progress!

    You are very sweet to ask about surprising other people in your party with Park Hopper Tickets! To upgrade park tickets ahead of time, the Guest who purchased the tickets can do so by logging into their "My Disney" account on the Disneyland website. Select "Tickets and Passes" to view the tickets. If there is a "Change or Modify" link next to the tickets, then the Guest should be able to add the Park Hoppers and complete the purchase. If that option is not available, I recommend either calling the Disneyland "Ticket" number to get assistance from a Cast Member or visiting the Guest Relations booth located outside the theme parks when you arrive at Disneyland. If you did not purchase the original tickets, it may be easier to buy them a Disney Gift Card in the amount of the Park Hopper ticket.

    If you have not done so yet, I recommend downloading the Disneyland mobile app before your trip. It has helpful planning features such as park maps, dining menus, and entertainment schedules. While I am in the parks, I use the app for all kinds of activities, including making Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations, viewing wait times, and mobile ordering food from my favorite Quick Service Restaurants. Cafe Daisy, Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe, and Bengal Barbecue are always at the top of my dining list!

    Mary, I hope your visit to Disneyland Resort is filled with special moments that turn into lifelong memories. Please contact us again if you have more questions!
