    If I purchase a day pass to Disneyland, can I upgrade to a hopper pass? How soon do I have to upgrade?

    Hi there Addison, and welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for bringing us your great question!

    I always recommend adding on the Park Hopper option to a Disneyland Resort theme park ticket because of the short walk between both parks.  We always purchase Park Hopper tickets because of how easy it is to bounce back and forth between each park, you get double the magic in one day!  

    You can absolutely add on the Park Hopper option when you purchase your theme park ticket, it will be an option for you after you select the number of days and number of tickets you'd like to purchase.  If you have already purchased your theme park tickets and want to add on the Park Hopper option, you can do so in person at the Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Ticket Booth.  Please know that the upgrade is subject to availability, and you could also reach out to Ticket Services prior to your trip for more information as well.  

    Adding the Park Hopper option will give you the flexibility to hop back and forth between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park after 11:00 AM.  I love to purchase Disney Genie+ Service as well since it will give you access to Lightning Lane selections and shorter wait times in both parks!  My favorite attractions to utilize it for are Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Disneyland Park, and Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! in Disney California Adventure Park.  

    I hope you have a wonderful trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth" Addison, and if you have any other questions before or after your trip, please come back and ask!

    Have a magical day!
