    Hi, thanks for previous answer. Still have a few questions about DL. DH, DD(14), DS(11) and I are thinking 2 days to visit DL last week of feb. Is it enough and would you recommend that we purchase the park hopper or would one day/park ticket be OK?Thanks

    Hi Josee!  Nice to hear from you again and always happy to answer any Disneyland vacation questions you may have!

    You can definitely experience most of what Disneyland parks have to offer in 2 days, but my personal recommendation for you is as follows:

    If you are able, purchase a 3 Day Park Hopper Ticket.  Begin with a full day at Disneyland (DL) your first day, followed by an evening at Disney California Adventure (DCA) for World of Color.  On your second day, visit DCA for the entire day, then leave in the evening to check out the live music, shopping, and restaurants at Downtown Disney (DTD).  On your 3rd day, if you feel you need a little more time at DCA, I would head back there for a few hours before finishing the day at DL Park.

    DCA can be thoroughly experienced in one day, and with the right plan, you should be able to experience everything in DL Park in two days, and will probably even have time to visit a few of your favorites twice!

    If you decide to go with the 2 day Hopper tickets, I would recommend:

    Day 1:

    Arrive at DCA for rope drop and stay there until early afternoon.  Exit the park through Grand Californian and spend an hour or two at Downtown Disney before heading over to DL Park where you should plan to stay until fireworks and Fantasmic.

    Day 2:

    Arrive at DL Park for rope drop and stay until mid afternoon before hopping the monorail to Downtown Disney.  Consider relaxing for a bit and taking in the sights of Disneyland Hotel, home to my favorite spot, Trader Sam's Tiki Bar.  Head back to DCA late afternoon in time for Mad T Party and World of Color!

    These are my suggestions in limited characters!  Please feel free to ask me another follow up!  -Amanda
