    Visiting Disneyland for the first time Aug 25-28. While purchasing tickets a notification came up saying Cal Adv would be closed early Aug 25 & 27. I can't find any info on the event/why or if Disneyland will also be closing early while there. Help

    Welcome to planDisney, Jeanette! I'm so happy you're here, and thank you for sharing this question with us. 

    How exciting to know that you'll be enjoying the magic of your first visit to Disneyland Resort in just over a month! The countdown is on! It sounds like you are already aware that Guests may view the park operating hours on the Hours & Events Calendar on the official Disneyland website or mobile app. Traditionally, this calendar is updated about 6 weeks in advance, so keep checking back as your visit approaches!

    However, what I can tell you is that August 25th and August 27th were both announced as event dates for Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party. This is a separately-ticketed after-hours event at Disney California Adventure Park, and this theme park will close early on event nights. Typically, Disneyland Park stays open later on those dates so it is usually a good idea to either make your park reservation for that park on event dates or purchase a Park Hopper ticket which grants access to both theme parks on the same day, subject to availability. 

    I hope this is some helpful information to help you continue to make preparations in advance of your visit. I'm also going to share a link to a recent episode of the planDisney podcast that is specifically about a first-time visit to Disneyland Resort! I hope it's helpful to you and your travel party. If we can assist with any other questions in the meantime, please feel welcome to come back to planDisney!

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
