  • [Question] One Park Per day or Park Hopper

    My family and I are going to visit the Disneyland resort later this month and plan on going to the parks for 2 days. I was wondering whether it is better to visit California Adventure, and DL both of the days, or is it better to focus on DL one day and California Adventure the next?

    Personally
    I'd do the park hopper (in case one park is busier than another)
    It's a $15 difference
    If you stay for 3 days, Disney's website has a special offer of $199 (additional $26, plus a magic morning breakfast)

      For us it depends on what the majority wants to do, if you wanna cut a lot of the walking we do one park a day, sometimes going back and forth takes a little out of you. So unless you are trying to catch specific shows or trying to avoid certain crowds I think a park a day is good as long as the trip ends at Disneyland

        I always say park hopper. I hate being limited and the fact they are across a plaza from each other makes it very convenient. Nohting like hitting Space Mountain, Star Tours and ToT on the same day
        These are some of my favorite TRs I have posted

          I also say park hopper. They're so close together, it's easy to just go back and forth. Is this your first time? While DCA does have a lot to do, so does DL, and being locked into DCA if there are things you missed at DL is kind of a bummer.

            I say 1park per day is your best bet. Park hopping is preferred by most locals I know because they already have experienced everything and can just leave/come back whenever they want. If you haven't been to DLR in a long while, or ever, dedicating one day to a park will get you immersed in that park alone and be well worth it. Take your time and you'll get through the entire park just in one day. If a park is crowded, just bear the crowds. Purchase the park hopper ONLY if you are sure you will park hop. $15 is not much, but $15 is $15. You don't want to end up paying those extra $15 and not park hop at all. There is so much to do in each park. Do you really wanna park hop in the middle of the day?

            Regardless of what your decision is, have fun!

              When we went to WDW last year (I know...whole nother world) we thought
              we didn't need park hoppers.
              We didn't do it. We regretted it.
              I get to Disneyland about once a year.
              Having the flexibility to go from one park to the next is nice.

                PH's are the only way to go for us. DCA is tough to make into a whole day park and after your there for a few hours, it's wonderful to go back into DLR, especially at night.

                  We like to go to dca in first in the morning until like 4 go to Disneyland until dinner then do Disneyland the next day also if seeing world of color I might recommend staying at dca until 2 going to the other park and come back for night time

                      Another vote for the park hopper ticket, since the difference isn't that great in the price. If you are there for only one day, I think you can get away with a ticket to one park--friends of mine have done that, and we've certainly found enough to do at DLR--but having the flexibility to pop back and forth between DCA and DLR really pays off.

                        I'm taking it they no longer do the breakfast thing w/ Magic Mornings.
                        It's been a long time since we've done one.
                        I stand corrected.
                        Just Magic Morning.

                          I'd do the park hopper. I easily get tired of DCA within a few hours given all the construction. I'd do one full day at DL and the next start at DCA hit all the attractions that you want then head back over to DL and then head back over to DCA for World of color if you haven't seen it.

                            if you want to see DCA at all, then get a Park Hopper. You can't spend a whole day in DCA.
