Disneyland California Resort includes both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. The information below applies to Disneyland tickets for both parks.

What You Need to Know About Disneyland Tickets

  • Children under 3 get in free, and anyone 10 years old or older pays adult admission for Disneyland tickets.

  • Lower-priced, 1-Park Per Day Disneyland tickets are good for only one park. In other words, you can't visit Disneyland in the morning and Disney California Adventure in the afternoon of the same day, or vice versa. However, if you buy a multi-day ticket, you can visit a different park each day.

  • Hopper Tickets allow you to visit both parks on the same day. Park Hopper Disneyland tickets expire 13 days after the first use, no matter how many days you buy. If you go to the Disneyland website to buy a Park Hopper, it's sold as an add-on. If you don't click it and pay the extra fee, you'll only be able to get into one park in a day.

  • Get Disneyland tickets and stay out of line at the park. Order online from Kijubi.com. They guarantee everyone a rate as low as you'll get by buying direct from Disney and give your readers 2% off with coupon code SVMALL2, and offer e-tickets you can take straight to the gate - and you can get tickets for other Southern California attractions from them at the same time.

  • If you buy from Disney, you can have paper tickets held at Will Call or mailed to your home. You'll pay a small fee for Will Call pickup or a shipping fee that varies depending on your location and lead time. These tickets come with a risk - they cannot be replaced if they're lost, even if you have a copy. Checked bags can go astray, so pack them in your carry-on luggage.

  • A better option is to order online and opt for eTickets which you can print out at home - or it can be scanned from your mobile device. This saves shipping costs, but even more important, an eTicket can be replaced if you forget or lose it, as long as the person who bought it is present and has the credit card they used to buy them. If that happens, just head for Guest Services at the Main Entrance Will Call window with the credit card and a photo ID and they can issue a new ticket.

  • Order by telephone at 714-781-4400.

  • Once you start your Disneyland visit, lost tickets cannot be replaced, even if you have a copy of them. Keep them safely tucked into a secure pocket while you're in the park (we like to use a lanyard for this).

  • Unlike other theme parks, Disneyland offers few discounts on tickets. The best way to save money on Disneyland tickets is to spend less time there, but our guide to Getting Disneyland Tickets at a Discount summarizes all the ways you can get your Disneyland tickets without paying full price.

Disneyland Tickets - Prices

List prices for Disneyland tickets listed below are accurate as of June 21, 2014, and valid through December 31, 2014, according to the Disneyland web site. However, that doesn't mean the prices won't go up sooner than that.

Exclusive discount for About.com California Travel readers only:  Buy your tickets through Kijubi.com and use coupon code SVMALL2 to get 2% off your purchase. It may not sound like much, but it can save $4 to $5 per ticket and is better than any other online e-ticket-seller we know of.
