    On September 19th California Adventures is closing early. Do I have an option to go to Disneyland for the evening if I only bought a one-park pass?

    Hi there, Christy!

    Welcome to planDisney, it's nice to meet you! You're visiting at a really spooky time of year, I'll try my best to find more treats than tricks for your trip.

    You are correct that Disney California Adventure Park will be hosting Oggie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party and will close at 6:00 PM for guests who are not attending the party. Guests who purchase Park Hopper Tickets can go to Disneyland Park after the clock strikes six, however, guests using a one-park ticket will not be able to visit Disneyland Park if their park reservation was for Disney California Adventure Park that day.

    I'm so sorry, I know that wasn't the news you were hoping for! Are you visiting the parks for multiple days? If so, I would suggest changing your park reservations to spend September 19 in Disneyland Park and visit Disney California Adventure Park on September 18 or 20. 

    If you aren't able to change your park days, there is still plenty of fun to be had after you leave the park! You might...

    • Go shopping in the Downtown Disney District! You'll find everything from delicious treats to unique shopping. WonderGround Gallery is a personal favorite of mine!
    • Have a delicious dinner at one of the Downtown Disney District restaurants. A reservation at Naples Ristorante e Bar is a great way to end your day.
    • If you want a little more "character" in your day then I highly recommend reservations for dinner at Goofy's Kitchen! Chef Goofy has something everyone will love, and he definitely has some adventurous items you won't usually find at a buffet!
    One of my secret weapons is having a few earlier nights mixed in with our trip plans. I find that sometimes what I really need is takeout in my hotel room and an early night! 

    Christy, I hope that this news wasn't too disappointing and that you find a fun way to enjoy your time at the parks. Let me know if you have other questions!

    Keep moving forward!
