Disneyland Tickets –  Information and Pricing

Disneyland Resort single park admission for either Disneyland park or Disney California Adventure park vary by season.

  • Peak Season $119 per adult | $113 per child (ages 3-9)
  • Regular Season $105 per adult | $99 per child (ages 3-9)
  • Value Season $95 per adult | 89 per child (ages 3-9)

California does not charge tax on theme park tickets. Children ages 3 to 9 pay child prices, and children under the age of 3 get into Disneyland Resort parks free. Guests ages 10 and above must purchase adult tickets.

Park Hopper tickets allow entrance into both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on the same day. One- to 5-day single park tickets and one- to 5-day Park Hopper tickets can be purchased at the gate or in advance online. All 3-, 4- and 5-day Tickets include one Magic Morning early admission to Disneyland Park. Disneyland tickets also must be used by the date specified on the ticket. Disneyland Resort offers Annual Passes for year-round park admission (with and without blackout days) that come with additional perks for passholders.
See Our Disneyland Tickets Chart For Prices and Discounts

Multi-day Passes

The most important thing to know about Disneyland multi-day passes is that the tickets expire on the expiration date printed on the ticket OR when all of the days are used up OR 13 days after the first use – whichever occurs first. This rule holds true even if there are still unused ticket days.  Disneyland tickets cannot be replaced if lost. For this reason, it is very important to safeguard your tickets once you purchase them and take care how you store them in the parks.

Additionally, the illegal ticket rental business has been booming at Disneyland in recent years. Disneyland Multi-day tickets are not transferable, however, and in an effort to prevent ticket fraud, Disneyland resort is now requiring that all guests using multi-day tickets have their photo taken. When the multi-day pass is used a second time, cast members manning the park turnstiles will see a photo of the guest pop up on a screen. The photo must match the person using the ticket in order to gain entry into the park.

“Magic Morning” Tickets

Disneyland guests who purchase multi-day tickets of 3 days or longer will receive one Magic Morning early admission with select attractions at Disneyland Park. The Magic Morning program offers access to Disneyland on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays one hour prior to scheduled park opening. Guests can only use this benefit once, and will not have early access to Disney California Adventure under the Magic Morning program.

Purchasing Tickets

Disneyland tickets can be purchased in advance online at disneyland.com. There is a $5 charge for standard shipping and a $5 fee for picking them up at the Will Call window. Tickets shipped Express Mail cost $15 and International Shipping is $25. Disney’s eTicket option for printing advance purchase online tickets is free. The eTicket option must be selected during online checkout. Tickets will be emailed as a pdf file to the email address specified. Printed e-tickets will be have a unique bar code that can be scanned at park turnstiles. Printed eTickets will then be exchanged for regular Disneyland admission tickets or Park Hoppers of the appropriate number of days.

Disneyland tickets can also be purchased by calling (714) 781-4400. These tickets, however, offer no eticket option and incur a $15 shipping fee for orders over $200 and a $5 shipping fee for orders under $200.

At the gate, Disney is testing a new technology that allows guests to purchase only 1-Day 1-Park, and 1-Day Park Hopper tickets using their smart phones rather than waiting in ticket lines. To purchase single day admission tickets, got to disneyland.com and select “Buy Tickets” from the home page. After you have made your purchase with your credit card, you will receive a confirmation with a barcode that will be scanned as you enter the park for which you’ve purchased your ticket. From there, you will be given a paper park ticket, which is still needed for park hopping or re-entry if you should leave the park and return later. A maximum of 15 tickets may be purchased at one time using this method. Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and JCB are accepted as payment forms. Disney has said that 2-Day tickets will be added to the service at a later date. Disneyland also offers a same-day, print-at-home option online.

Disneyland admission tickets are also offered by a number of ticket brokers and vendors online that buy tickets from Disney in bulk and pass on the savings. For more information on purchasing discounted Disneyland tickets, see our Discounted Ticket section below.

TheMouseForLess Tip: Unused day(s) on any Walt Disney World “unexpired” multi-day ticket can be used for admission to Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure parks. Present your WDW Ticket at the gate (not a ticket booth) and it will be exchanged for a single day Disney park admission ticket. If you have multiple days left on your WDW ticket, you must repeat the process each day. Only one day will be subtracted from your WDW ticket at a time and the Disneyland ticket must be used on the same day. If your Walt Disney World ticket has the “park hopping” option, you may also park hop at Disneyland. It’s also worth noting that you must have already used or activated the ticket at Walt Disney World for at least one day in order to use unused days at Disneyland Resort.

Note: Currently, this will only work if you have the old pre-MyMagic+ paper (Tyvek) tickets. The new RFID Walt Disney World tickets and MagicBands can not be used for admission to the parks at the Disneyland Resort. The ticketing system at DL can only read a bar code (or serial number) that ties into the WDW Automated Ticketing System. The new RFID tickets and MagicBands have a serial number that does not tie directly to this system so there is no way for Disneyland to read and verify days or remove days from these ticket devices. Thus, if you have leftover days on the old WDW multi-day paper tickets that you may use at WDW and/or DL in the future, do not convert these tickets to the new RFID tickets. You should still be able to enter Walt Disney World without converting these tickets. Conversely, we have also heard that if you have RFID multi-day Walt Disney World tickets that do not expire with leftover days that you plan on using at Disneyland, you may request that the ticket be replaced with a Tyvek ticket before leaving the Walt Disney World Resort, although this information has not been verified.

TheMouseForLess Tip: Disneyland tickets can not be used as admission to Walt Disney World parks! The value of a valid unused or partially-used Disneyland ticket can, however, be applied to the purchase of a new Walt Disney World MYW ticket or Annual Pass. Any Guest Relations Office at Walt Disney World should be able to lookup the value of your unexpired Disneyland ticket, cancel the Disneyland ticket, and apply that value to your new WDW ticket.

Ticket Upgrades

The value of an unused or partially used ticket or pass can be applied to upgrading to a higher value ticket or pass as long as the upgrade occurs prior to the ticket expiration. For instance, a partially used 3-Day Park Hopper that has not expired and is within 13 days of first use can be upgraded a 5-Day Park Hopper or to an Annual Pass. Visit any Guest Services window to upgrade your ticket or pass. For tickets purchased at a discount, the price you “actually” paid will be applied to your upgrade; this information is encoded in the ticket. Older Disneyland passes with no printed expiration date are still valid as admission media at Disneyland Resort, but because of their low value, are probably better used for park admission than applying towards an upgrade.

Annual Passes

Disneyland offers three types of Annual Passes. Prices vary by the number of dates blocked out and residential requirements. All Annual Passes offer some perks such a hotel discounts, when available, dining discounts at select locations, special offers at select Downtown Disney District locations, discounts on merchandise and tours, access to special events and more. Perks will vary depending on AP type. Visit Disneyland’s Annual Passholder page for details on each type. Disneyland Premium AP passholders receive 10% discount on merchandise, dining and tour discounts and free parking at any pay-on-entry lot. The difference between a Deluxe and Premium annual pass is now $230. Most passholders can easily recoup this difference via the higher food and merchandise discounts offered to Premium passholders. Parking add-ons can be purchased for other Annual Passes (Deluxe and Southern California Select Passports) at an additional cost of $169 per year.
See Our Disneyland Ticket Chart For Prices and Discounts

TheMouseForLess Tip: If your family will be visiting Disneyland for more than a few days, it may be worth purchasing one Premium Annual Pass for a member of your group for the hotel discount and other discounts or for free parking if you’ll be staying off-site. You’ll have to do the math to see if it will be worthwhile for your group.

Disney allows Annual Passholders who live in SoCal the ability renew or buy a new pass and pay for it by the month. The initial cost is equivalent to the cost of a 1-Day, 1-Park ticket, and the remaining cost is spread out over 12 months. There is no finance charge to use this option. A discount is available on Premium and Deluxe renewals.

TheMouseForLess Tip: All new Premium, Deluxe, and So Cal Select Passports purchased after October 22, 2012 no longer include an expiration date, passport type or parking indicator. The changes allow Passholders to reuse the same card upon renewal or upgrade. Once a renewal has been processed by mail or online, Passholders with the new style card can begin enjoying the Parks immediately without having to visit a ticket booth to acquire a new card.

An annual Premier Passport is available for admission to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts. The new Premier Passport allows access to both east coast and west coast resort parks with no blackout dates. Passholders are able to visit multiple parks on the same day, as well as, get unlimited admission to Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (valid only on event days; some events require an additional admission charge) and Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course (with restrictions). The pass also includes theme park parking, invitations to special events, and Passholder discounts and offers. The cost of the Premier Passport is $1099, plus applicable sales tax. For an additional fee, annual passholders can upgrade their annual or seasonal pass for one resort to a Disney Premier Passport. Disney Premier Passports are available for purchase only at select Disney Parks locations: Disneyland Resort theme park ticket booths; Guest Relations windows at Walt Disney World theme parks; and Downtown Disney area at Walt Disney World Resort.

Other Ticket Media

If you’ll be visiting other Disneyland area attractions, you can also purchase a Southern California CityPass. This pass includes includes admission to Universal Studios Hollywood, SeaWorld Adventure Park, a 3-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper Bonus Ticket and your choice of the World-Famous San Diego Zoo or the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park. This pass is valid for 14 days from first use and includes one Magic Morning early admission with select attractions at Disneyland Park.
See Our Disneyland Ticket Chart For Prices and Discounts

TheMouseForLess Tip: Parking at the Disneyland Resort is not free and can be quite pricey at $17 per day per car and $22 per day for RVs, campers and trailers at the the Mickey & Friends multi-level parking structure. Several discounts on parking are available at other locations. You can get 3 hours of free parking at the Downtown Disney lot. A fee of $6 per hour is charged for longer parking. However, if you eat at a DTD restaurant or catch a movie at the AMC movie-plex, you can have your parking ticket stamped which gets you a total of 5 hours of free parking.

Discounted Tickets for Disneyland and Area Attractions

Disneyland admission tickets are offered by a number of ticket brokers and vendors online. Ticket brokers buy their passes in bulk from Disney and then pass the savings on. In many cases ticket broker prices are better than advance ticket prices bought directly through Disneyland.com. When comparing prices online, just be sure to compare prices equivocally across the board. Theme park tickets sold in California are not subject to tax, but some online vendors do charge tax. Most Disneyland vendors carry tickets for all of the most popular area attractions.

In general, advance purchase savings when you buy tickets directly from Disneyland online are a thing of the past. Disneyland does, however, continue to offered special “promotional tickets” at a discount online during specific times of the year. The special “promotional tickets” are also available through select ticket vendors. See the chart below for additional info on Disney Ticket pricing.

Other Ways to Get Disneyland Ticket Discounts

First, never buy tickets sold on eBay, Craigslist or any unauthorized source. Disneyland tickets come with a printed expiration date and used tickets expire 13 days after first use. There is no way to tell how many days may be left on a multi-day ticket other than at the park turnstiles, or for that matter, if the tickets are even real. Furthermore, Disneyland Resort tickets are non-transferable, so don’t expect Disney to help if you get burnt buying a great deal. If you have any doubt about the wisdom of this statement, you can read about ticket scams that took place in the Disneyland area and on Craigslist. As a result of this and similar incidents and ticket rental scams, Disney is now requiring that guests have their photo taken when using all multi-day tickets. Online, use ticket vendors recommended on long-standing Disney information sites and communities when purchasing any attraction tickets and avoid all others. Most Disney communities have a long history with the reliable vendors and you will see those vendors mentioned often on forums, boards, and email lists.

Last Minute Ticket Discounts

Disneyland ticket discounts may occasionally be available at some Disneyland “Good Neighbor” hotels and area supermarkets, but, typically are not as good as the advance purchase prices available through ARES Travel.
