    We’re hitting Disneyland for 3 days next summer. We’ll hit one park the first day, the other the second, and I’m unsure about the third day...is it possible to purchase the Park Hopper at one of the gates (or online/using the app) on Day 3 only?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your question. I'm so excited you are planning the details of your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    I'd love to tell you a little bit more about park tickets at the Disneyland Resort. Thinking about upgrading your One Park Per Day tickets to Park Hopper tickets is a very smart decision. Since Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are mere footsteps apart, park hopping is an absolute breeze. I always choose Park Hopper tickets as I prefer the freedom to jump between parks all day. With the Disneyland app you can easily check attraction wait times in both parks as well as see which Characters are meeting. If I see a short wait time for an attraction or Character I want to meet, I love the ability to easily visit either park.

    You are more than welcome to upgrade your ticket to a Park Hopper at the Main Entrance ticket booths any time while your ticket is still valid. Keep in mind that whether you choose to upgrade your ticket on day one or day three, it is the same price. You will just pay the difference between the 3-Day Park Hopper ticket and the 3-Day One Park Per Day ticket. This means if you are truly considering making this upgrade, it is in your best interest to do so as soon as you arrive so you can make the most out of your 3-Day Park Hopper ticket. 

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah day!
