How To Buy Discount Disneyland Tickets



Disneyland© Resort in California is a truly magical place and a bucket list destination for many. It is possible to buy discount Disneyland tickets to save money for the excellent character dining, famous desserts, and souvenirs. It’s important to follow some general guidelines to avoid scams.

Initial Decisions to Make

Several decisions are necessary to make before buying Disneyland tickets.

How many days will you need a ticket? Disneyland Resort is home to two theme parks: Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. While it’s possible to see both theme parks in one day, it’s rushed. A minimum of two days will allow for a better experience.

Should you buy Park Hopper© tickets? The park entrances are right next to each other, so it doesn’t take long to walk from one to the other. Whether you opt for Park Hopper tickets depends on what suits your traveling companions best. Typically, for more extended visits Park Hopper provide much-needed flexibility and allow people to re-ride favorite rides on a whim. If you do buy a one-park ticket and decide to upgrade it, you can do this at the park. Park Hopper tickets do not need to be used on consecutive days, but they do need to be used within 13 days of first use (be sure to read all terms and conditions).

Where to buy discount Disneyland tickets? I’ve detailed reliable methods for buying discounted tickets for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park below.

Important Disneyland Tickets Purchasing Tips

BUY ONLY FROM A DISNEYLAND AUTHORIZED TICKET SELLER

One of the most important things when buying Disneyland tickets is this. Buy only from a Disneyland Authorized Ticket Seller. Tickets to “The Happiest Place on Earth” are an investment and like many high-value goods, they can be subject to counterfeiting. Do not ever buy a partially used pass or “rent” a pass.

READ ALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Read all terms and conditions before purchasing Disneyland tickets. Be sure that they do not expire before your visit. Check refund and transfer policies. And most importantly, check how you’ll receive the tickets. For example, will you need to pick them up at the ticket booth, can you print and go or will they be snail mailed?

IF IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE…

It probably is. Steep discounts on authentic Disneyland Resort tickets do not exist, especially on one-day passes.

DISNEYLAND PARKING

There are various parking options offered for guests visiting the Disneyland Resort(s), all detailed on the Disneyland website. At the time of this writing, the fee for self-parking a standard car for the day is $25, and preferred parking (closer to the elevators and escalators) for a standard car is $40. Upgrade pre-purchased parking for an extra $15.

1-DAY PASSES ARE ALMOST NEVER DISCOUNTED

1-day Disneyland tickets are rarely discounted so usually the best bet for a one-day ticket is to buy directly from Disneyland Resort. (Teachers, students, military and a few other groups can be eligible for discount 1-day passes through various associations.)

KIDS UNDER THE AGE OF 3 ARE FREE

You do not need to purchase a ticket for children under 3. Children ages 3-9 need a child ticket while ages 10 and older require an adult ticket.

MAGIC MORNING

Magic Morning is a significant benefit usually added to 3-Day, 4-Day or 5-Day Tickets. Magic Morning allows ticket holders entry to Disneyland Park one hour before it opens to the general public. Current Magic Morning days are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday but please check the calendar for details.

While supplies last, they are selling 2019 Disneyland tickets at 2018 prices. I don’t expect this opportunity to last more than a few days so please take advantage of it ASAP.

All 3, 4 or 5-day tickets purchased through them include one-day access to the Magic Morning.  aRes Travel is also known for excellent customer service as they have agents that you can call if need be. aRes Travel ticketholders go straight to the gate without a need to go to the ticket booth first.

Note that aRes Travel charges a $2 convenience fee per ticket, but you will still likely come out ahead.
