Where do I park when traveling to the Disneyland® Resort?
There are several parking areas available to our Guests. If you will be spending a day at our Theme Parks, day parking is available in the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. Hourly parking is available in our Downtown Disney® District Parking Lot located between the Structure and the Disneyland Hotel if you plan on stopping by for a little shopping, dining or entertainment at the Downtown Disney District or Disneyland Resort Hotels. If you are a Guest of one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, each Hotel provides its own parking area.
How is the Disneyland Resort different from Disneyland Park?
The Disneyland Resort is comprised of Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure® Park, Downtown Disney District, and all three Hotels of the Disneyland Resort.
When is the best time to visit the Disneyland Resort?
Selecting the "best" time to visit the Disneyland Resort depends upon each individual's interests. If you are looking to visit when the attendance will be fairly low, consider planning your stay during the middle of the week (Tuesdays-Thursdays) during: September - November, or January - April. However, during these times of year, the Theme Parks typically have reduced operating hours and entertainment events, and attractions closed for refurbishment. Although the hours and entertainment schedules vary during these times of year, the attendance is low and Guests are able to experience more attractions as opposed to holiday/summer periods.If you are interested in visiting while the Park has extended hours, entertainment events and all attractions operating, you can plan your stay for selected weekends (Saturdays/Sundays), extended holiday weekends, Christmas and Spring Break, or the summer months June-August. Please be aware however that attendance is usually increased during these time frames.We recommend that once you have selected your prospective date of visit, please contact the Disneyland Resort Information Office to inquire about any special events, promotions, attraction closures, etc. that may affect the Park's operation or attendance. The telephone number is (714) 781-7290.
Can I visit both Parks in one day - For instance: Disneyland Park during the day and Disney California Adventure Park in the evening?
Yes, the Disneyland Resort Park Hopper® ticket is valid for same-day entry into both Disneyland & Disney California Adventure Theme Parks.
What do I pack when I come to visit the Disneyland Resort?
When packing for the Disneyland Resort always remember to come prepared for the unexpected.
