    How do I purchase a park hopper

    Hi there, Joe!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney. I am glad that you sent your question to us! Park Hopper Tickets are the best way to maximize your time at Disneyland Resort! Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are steps away from each other, and it is so easy to hop between them throughout the day, starting at 11:00 a.m. (subject to availability).

    I recommend starting with the Offers & Discounts page to see if any ticket promotions apply to you. Guests can then purchase tickets on the Theme Park Ticket page (which can also be found at the top of the Disneyland website, under "Buy Theme Park Tickets"). First, select the ticket and then choose the number of days you want to visit Disneyland. After that, select the number of adult and child tickets needed. Kids between 3 and 9 years old can use a child ticket, and kids under 3 years old do not need a ticket. The next step is where you can pick either a One Park Per Day Ticket or a Park Hopper Ticket. You will then be directed to a Theme Park Reservation Calendar where you will select which park you want to begin your day in. To enter a theme park, all Guests need both a valid ticket and a park reservation for that day. I usually alternate my starting parks each day of my visit to experience both parks first thing in the morning.

    Make sure to download the Disneyland mobile app before your visit. It has many helpful features to help plan your trip, including park maps and dining menus. I also use the app constantly throughout the day while at Disneyland to view wait times, find Disney Characters, make Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations, and mobile order food. I love the mobile order option! I can pre-order meals and reduce the time spent standing in line to order and pick up food. Some of my favorite mobile order locations currently include Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe, Bengal Barbecue, and Flo's V8 Cafe

    Joe, thank you again for contacting planDisney! We hope to see you real soon!

    Magic Happens!
