    Have reservations to go into California land first then to Disneyland at 1. How do I change it to go into Disneyland first. Without losing my reservation date.

    Hi there, David! Welcome to planDisney!

    The countdown is on! It is almost time for your arrival at the Disneyland Resort, where pixie dust fills the air and all your worries melt away as you grab your favorite Mickey shaped treat! If you haven't already heard, you're in for a little extra magic this time around, as a few of the most beloved Nighttime Spectaculars are making their triumphant return to the Disneyland Resort on April 22, 2022. How lucky, right? Just days before you arrive! So be sure to check out World of Color, Disneyland Forever Fireworks and the Main Street Electrical Parade during your visit!

    David, you've stumbled upon a bit of a tricky question here. In order to switch your starting park, you'll actually have to cancel your original park reservation and make a new one for the park you'd like to begin in that day. That does make this change a bit risky. I'd highly recommend taking a peek at the Theme Park Reservation Availability before you cancel your original park reservation. If you'd like to start your day at Disneyland Park, just locate the date you plan to visit to make sure there are reservations still available.

    At Disneyland Resort, you can park hop at 1 p.m. or later. So, if you decide to hang on to your original reservation and visit Disney California Adventure Park first, it won't be long until you can hop over to Disneyland Park and experience some classic rides, like Haunted Mansion and "it's a small world."

    Have a magical day, David!
