    Planning on a 2 day park hopper ticket; however, I arrive that first day around noon. If for some reason my flight is delayed at all (due to weather), what are my options if I have to cancel my disneyland ticket on that first day?

    Hi there Chad!  Thank you for bringing your great question to planDisney!

    How exciting that your trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth" is coming up so soon!  I love that you added on the park hopper option to your tickets.  It is so convenient to park hop between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, and you're able to experience your favorite attractions and entertainment in both parks in one day!  

    If you are able to extend your trip to an extra day to accommodate for any travel delays, I highly recommend you do that.  For theme park reservations, you do need to cancel the reservation for the following day by 11:59 PM Pacific Time the night before.  If you do not, the only consequence is that you are not able to book a new theme park reservation until 12:00 AM starting the day after the unused park reservation.  You can check the theme park reservation availability calendar as well to ensure that there are theme park reservations available for any future dates.  

    If you are able to move the dates in advance, I do recommend it, that way you're not worried about a flight being delayed, and then you can enjoy a full day at the parks!  For your arrival day, we always love to spend time in the Downtown Disney District whether it's shopping for souvenirs at the World of Disney store, or enjoying some great food at Naples Ristorante e Bar.  It's a great way to still get some Disney magic in your day and get excited for your upcoming park days!  

    I hope this information is helpful for your upcoming trip, Chad!  I'm wishing you and your family a very magical trip, if we can help with anything else, please do not hesitate to come back to planDisney!

    Have a magical day,
