    We have tickets for 10/24/22. Is the park closing early that day ? This was not disclosed to us at the time of purchase. We need some help please.

    Hiya, Doris!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for sending your Disneyland Resort planning question to us hEAR!

    Oh dear! I'm so sorry for this Disney dilemma! I'm looking at the Disneyland Resort 5-day Planning Calendar and I see that everything looks to be running normally on Monday the 24th with Disney California Adventure Park closing at 10:00 P.M. and Disneyland Park closing at Midnight. These are their normal operating hours during the 'busy' season. And while I'm not exactly sure why, Disney California Adventure usually closes two hours earlier than Disneyland. (I think they're staggered so that Guests don't all rush to the parking areas at the same time.) It sounds like you're a fellow night owl! You'll be happy to know that some locations in the Downtown Disney District stay open late, too, keeping the magic going as late as 1:00 A.M.!

    Bonus Tip: I do also see that Disney California Adventure Park is hosting the separately ticketed, Halloween-themed Oogie Boogie Bash on both Sunday the 23rd and Tuesday the 25th. This park will be closing to non-party ticket holders at 6:00 P.M. on both of those nights, but your Disney date of Monday the 24th shouldn't be affected by that schedule at all.

    Bonus Pro Tip: The park closing time is the time that the attractions as well as most dining and shopping locations stop receiving guests for that day. However, there's usually one or two shops, as well as a dining location or two that are open for about 15 to 30 minutes after that. These will mainly be the options up and down Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland Park as well as Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park, including the Starbucks locations in each park, which are Market House and the Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe.

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Doris! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
