    If you purchase a Disneyland ticket and you want to add a hopper , can I visit California adventure first and then Disneyland ?

    Hi Esther, welcome to planDisney!

    Great choice on considering the Park Hopper Tickets! We love the park hopper tickets in my family as well. They give you so much flexibility and truly allow you to maximize your day! When you purchase the park hopper tickets, you can choose either Disney California Adventure Park or  Disneyland Park as your starting park, the decision is up to you. However please keep an eye on the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar to ensure there is availability on the date you are planning to visit. On your arrival date, you will be able to "hop" over to the other park starting at 1 p.m. and can go between the parks afterward as much as you wish. But please know that this is subject to the park's capacity limitations.

    Also, when you purchase your theme park tickets, you'll have the option to purchase the Disney Genie+ service as an add-on. Genie+ will give you access to the Lightning Lane entrances for most attractions, hopefully resulting in less time spent waiting in line. BUT, just so you know, there are certain attractions where Lightning Lane entrance access must be purchased individually through the Disneyland Mobile app. These can only be purchased once you've entered one of the theme parks and are limited to two attractions per day. The attractions currently available through this option are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and Radiator Springs Racers.

    And before I let you go, I wanted to make sure you're aware of the amazing Southern California Resident Weekday Ticket Offer for Southern California residents within ZIP codes 90000-93599. This is a special three-day weekday ticket that can be used on nonconsecutive days. It's a great offer if you qualify and have flexible schedules, but it does expire on May 26, 2022, so all three days must be used by then.

    I hope you have a magical time!

    See ya real soon!
