    Do you have a reliable source for park opening and closing times- they seem to vary site to site and i am not sure which times apply to general admission.

    Hey, howdy, hey, Rashmi! Welcome back to planDisney. I am delighted you stopped by with another question! I can tell by the thoughtful questions you’re asking that you’re a planner at heart! What a coincidence, I am too.

    I always use the Park Hours calendar on the Disneyland Resort website or check the Disneyland mobile app for opening and closing times. This is the most reliable source of information. Having the app handy also makes it easy to check other schedules, such as entertainment

    Rashmi, have you researched your ticket options while at the parks? In your previous question you mentioned a 2-day visit. I would recommend a Park Hopper ticket as the parks are so close by, it’s easy to move from one to the other during the day. Plus, the price to add the park hopper option (currently $60/ticket) is the same, flat price no matter how many days on your ticket, hence it’s a great deal when you’re there for more than one day. 

    As you’re thinking about planning, dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance. My family and I like to have one dining reservation for each day we are there. This gives us flexibility for spontaneous snacking and impromptu mobile ordering during the day, but we also have a dedicated time to sit down and relax for a meal. This is usually when we reflect on the attractions we’ve experienced and laugh about the fun moments we've tucked into our Disney memory bank.

    Can I tell you about my favorite snack at the parks? The Mickey-shaped Beignets at Mint Julep Bar are fluffy clouds of perfection if you ask me! I usually mobile order them while on an attraction nearby, so they are ready to pick up as soon as I’m ready for them. I'm also a classic churro and popcorn kind of gal. 

    Rashmi, have a practically perfect holiday to the Happiest Place on Earth! See ya real soon,
