    I am wondering if anyone knows how the park reservations work for Disneyland. Do you have to pick a time to arrive or can you arrive at the park anytime on the day of your reservation

    Hey Lynn!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is one of my favorite things to do! I'm not sure when the last time was that you visited but there's so much new to see and do. The most recent addition has been the reimagining of Mickey's Toontown. Aside from all the new and fun interactive activities for little Mouseketeers you'll also get to experience Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway. The Disney100 Celebration at Disneyland Resort is in full swing so you'll see decorations throughout the parks and special merchandise, special treats, and special entertainment as well.

    When purchasing tickets to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park you'll make your theme park reservation at the same time. There are no time slots to choose from when making a theme park reservation and you will be able to arrive at the time of your choosing during normal operating hours for the day that you choose to visit. If purchasing a Park Hopper ticket, you'll need to choose which theme park you'd like to start your day at and then you would be free to hop from park to park starting at 11:00 a.m. 

    Well Lynn, I hope this information helps you plan the rest of your trip. Let us know if you need anything else.

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
