    Why is California Adventure closing at 5pm on March 23rd and 24th? I didn’t know this before planning my trip, very upset now.

    Hi, Katie! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Thank you so much for your visit and for letting us help you plan your trip! 

    I'm a huge planner, and I know how frustrating it can be to change plans when you've already created the perfect trip in your mind. I hope this answer helps you understand why you'll have to tweak your plans a bit, though. 

    Disney California Adventure Park will host Service Celebrations on March 23 and 24. These parties recognize company anniversaries and celebrate the people who make magic for us every day: Cast Members. These parties are special events to show the love that Cast Members deserve, and they happen after the park closes to Guests. 

    Now that you know why this park will close sooner than you anticipated, I'll share two tips to help you make the most of your time at the Disneyland Resort. My first idea is to purchase Park Hopper tickets so that you can go to Disneyland Park when the events start. Disneyland Park is very charming at night! 

    Another option is to book two evening meals at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa or Downtown Disney District, for example. How does that sound?

    I hope you have an extraordinary time at the Disneyland Resort, Katie. Let us know if you have more questions, and we'll be here to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
