    If we purchased park hopper with our package is being able park hop guaranteed? If there is a ticketed event going on at a park one of the nights we are there are we still able to hop to that park until a certain amount of time before the event?

    Hello there, Megan!

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! It looks like you'll be visiting during a wonderfully spooky time of year, I am happy to give you some more details about Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. 

    My family really loves purchasing Park Hopper Tickets when we visit the Disneyland Resort! With Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park literally steps apart it's so easy to visit both magical destinations on the same day. If you purchase Park Hopper Tickets and make your theme park reservations for the days of your visit then you'll be free to visit each park until closing! Just purchase your Park Hopper Tickets and make your theme park reservations, selecting the park that you will visit first during that day. Once park hopping is allowed (right now that's after 11:00 AM each day) you'll be able to move over to your second park, no additional park reservation is currently required. You're welcome to hop back and forth as much as you'd like until the parks close!

    Park hopping is especially helpful if you'll be at the resort during special events, such as Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party. Right now it looks like the official party start time is 6:00 PM, however, party guests can enter Disney California Adventure Park as early as 3:00 PM on the day of their party. So if you want to visit Disney California Adventure Park then I would recommend starting your day there or heading over as soon as park hopping is allowed. Once you hit 3:00 PM the park will definitely start to feel more crowded!

    If you decide that you'd like to party along with Oogie Boogie then you'll need to purchase special event tickets, which go on sale to the public on June 19, 2023. Don't wait too long, because these tickets can sell out frighteningly fast! But don't worry, even if you don't attend the party there will be tons of fun seasonal events going on in both parks.

    Megan, I hope this answers your question! You've still got some time before your visit, so if I can help you with anything else just send me a note and I'll be happy to plan along with you!

    Keep moving forward!
