    Can I purchase park hopper tickets at the gate the same day I am going to the park?

    Hi Joanna! Thanks for dropping by planDisney.

    In addition to a valid admission ticket, Guests currently also need a theme park reservation to enter the parks. I checked for you, and it looks like your preferred date is currently sold out, which means there are no theme park reservations available. I'm sorry if that is disappointing! This can happen at popular times of the year. Sometimes a date fills up and sometimes a park does. Purchasing your admission ticket as early as possible helps decrease the possibility that your preferred date will be unavailable.

    However, a theme park reservation may become available if someone cancels their reservation. There's no guarantee, but if you keep checking the Theme Park Reservation Calendar, you might find new availability appears even at the last minute as Guests' plans change. I'd check throughout the day to increase my chances of grabbing the tickets and reservations I needed. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    If you already have a valid admission ticket and theme park reservation and would like to upgrade to a Park Hopper, access your My Disneyland account on the Disneyland mobile app. You'll find "Tickets and Passes" by tapping the three-bar menu at the bottom of the app. To view your tickets tap "Tickets and Passes." If there is a modify or change link, click on this to add the Park Hopper and complete the additional purchase with your method of payment. However, if you don't see this option, you can call the Tickets dedicated phone line, where a helpful Cast Member can assist you with any eligible upgrade. If you wait until you've arrived to add Park Hopper, you can visit the main ticket booths outside of the parks. They're also able to help with upgrades and Park Hopper.

    It is important to note that your current theme park reservations are canceled when you complete an upgrade. If theme park reservations are sold out on the day of your visit, you're taking a chance of not being able to secure a new reservation. That includes making the purchase in person at the main ticket booths. However, you can add Genie+ to your ticket as soon as you scan into the parks, and this won't affect your theme park reservation. That's an option my family really loves and regularly adds on the day of our visit. We're able to spend less time in queues and more time enjoying the magic. It's especially helpful on popular days.

    I hope this helps!
