(Just a few old tickets in my “collection.”)
Next up, you need to consider the best ticket for you. (If you live in California, then you’ve probably already stopped reading this article, but just in case – know that there are special ticket deals out there for you… lucky.) I highly recommend a Park-Hopper ticket (meaning you can get into both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in the same day), it costs about $30 extra, but it’s totally worth it. Like Disneyland, Disney California Adventure has many fun things for little kids to enjoy; my three year old is especially pumped to go to Cars Land which will be open just in time for our visit this summer. Here are the current ticket prices as listed from Disneyland.com, valid through December 31, 2013:
This summer my family is taking advantage of an amazing discount for members of the U.S. military (retired now, my dad served in the Navy for 20+ years). We can get a 3 Day Park-Hopper ticket for only $99 – over $100 saved per person! It only lasts until September of this year, so if you can swing a trip before then you’ll be saving a bundle. You can also check for special ticket prices through educational associations, AAA, travel companies, travel websites “package deals”, and Costco. Costco sells the Southern California City Pass that gives you three days at the Disneyland Resort and one day each at Sea World and Universal Studios for $279. It’s a great deal–our family’s done it and totally recommend it. Please note that all Disneyland Resort admission tickets are non-transferrable. Never purchase tickets purchase partial tickets from individuals or online. Learn more about the serious risks of purchasing shared tickets. It’s illegal.
Ok – so you’ve got your ticket, now how do you get from Point A to Point DLR? That’s for next time! Until then, let me know what your first step is when planning a trip from out-of-state, and what ticket tricks do you have up your sleeve?
