    How does the park hopper work? I just purchased a park hopper ticket and was confused how it works I made a reservation for dca as the first park but to get into Disneyland after 1pm do I need a reservation ?

    Hello, Alexis! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Alexis, it looks like your visit to the Disneyland Resort is just less than away. I bet you're excited to return to the land of Magic! I'm happy to hear that you've already secured your tickets and theme park reservations since both are required for you to enter the parks. 

    With your Park Hopper tickets, starting at 1 PM, you’ll be able to “hop” to the other park. Since your park reservation begins at Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll enter that park first and experience all the fun. Then any time after 1 P, you’ll be able to “hop” across The Esplanade and enjoy Disneyland Park. At this time, Guests do not require an additional park reservation for the second park with their Park Hopper tickets, however, reservation requirements are subject to change.
