    Do you need a reservation or just the ticket to enter the parks?

    Welcome to planDisney, Richard! I’m so glad you’ve stopped in to visit us with your question about the Disneyland Resort!

    When it comes to spending a magical day at either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, all guests must have purchased a valid theme park ticket and have a theme park reservation for the day they would like to visit. 

    After purchasing your ticket, just click on this link to make your theme park reservation before your visit. You can also view the availability calendar to make sure the dates you want to visit are available before you purchase them. 

    Did you know that you can visit both theme parks on the same day? If you purchase a park hopper ticket, you can enjoy one park first thing in the morning, then hop on over to the next park at 1p.m.! My family and I really like the flexibility of being able to do our favorite things at each of the parks on the same day. All you have to do is make sure you visit the park you have made your reservation for first, then you can head to the next park. 

    Richard, I hope this information is helpful to you as start to make plans for your vacation. Please feel free to come back to see us if you have any more questions. It’s always our pleasure to help! 

    Have a magical visit!
