    Hi! I’m trying to plan a trip to Disneyland, we are doing to days. We want to do both parks one day and one on the other. How do I book that without paying for park hopper on both days?

    Hi Leslie! Welcome to planDisney! You will love visiting the parks in April - springtime is beautiful in Southern California! 

    It sounds like you are getting your tickets and plans in order so that you can start mapping out your magical days ahead! When it comes to park tickets, you are able to purchase 1 x One Park Per Day Ticket + 1 x One Park Hopper Ticket, but they would need to be completed as two separate transactions. When I was researching the answer to your question, I came across a similar response from my fellow panelist Julie who had a GREAT idea. She suggested comparing the cost of your original plan with the cost of buying Park Hoppers for both days. Without knowing the specifics of your trip, I tested it out using April 2 and April 3 as your park days, and guess what?! It was actually less expensive to go with two Park Hoppers! You will have so much flexibility to bounce between parks and attractions starting at 1 p.m. each day. An actual dream come true!

    You will see when booking your tickets that you have the option to upgrade to the new Genie +. And let me tell you, you will want to consider this new magical option! While the Disney Genie Service is complimentary and can be used within the Disneyland Mobile App to create custom itineraries for your park days ahead, Genie + adds some extra special pixie-dust to your trip. You will get access to Lightning Lanes for select attractions like Haunted Mansion and even Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT! which will save time and help you plan out your day more seamlessly. My favorite perk is access to unlimited digital downloads of ALL the Disney PhotoPass photos that you capture that day! The only thing better than making memories is remembering them!

    Oh! And be on the lookout for news from the Disneyland Resort. It has already been announced that some fan-favorite nighttime spectaculars like Fantasmic! and World of Color will be returning this spring hopefully in time for your trip! 

    Leslie, I just know you are in for some of the happiest times at the Happiest Place on Earth! If you need anything while you are making your plans in the months ahead, stop by and see us again! We are always here for you at planDisney.

    Keep wishing on those stars,
