    Hello. Next month in December will Ben my first time at Disneyland and was thinking about purchasing the park hopper. There will be only 2 adults so I was wondering if it’s possible to do both parks in one day?

    Hi there, Ann! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited that you will soon be visiting the Disneyland Resort for the first time!

    One of the great things about the Disneyland Resort is that Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are mere steps away from each other making it really easy to hop back and forth. So, I absolutely recommend purchasing Park Hopper tickets. You may not see and do everything, but you can certainly have a ton of fun in both parks in one day. I suggest researching your top attractions and entertainment options in both parks to make your must-do list. Then, start your day as early as possible so you can hit all your top picks. 

    You will also want to take advantage of Disney FASTPASS Service. Simply visit a FASTPASS distribution kiosk near an attraction you want to ride, insert your theme park ticket, and a FASTPASS reminder ticket will be distributed. Head back to the attraction during your designation return time, scan your park ticket or Disneyland app, and skip most of the queue. You might also consider upgrading to the Disney MaxPass option to make the most efficient use of your time. With Disney MaxPass, you can select FASTPASSES for your entire party on the Disneyland app from anywhere in the parks. This will save you a lot of steps and a lot time! 

    I hope this helps. Have a magical visit to the Disneyland Resort!
