When planning a trip to Disneyland, everyone has one question on their mind, “How much are Disneyland tickets?”

I’ve pulled together the top place to buy Disneyland tickets so you never pay full price for tickets to Disneyland.  

At The Happiest Blog on Earth, we partner exclusively with Get Away Today, the company who actually started it all with discount Disneyland tickets (fun fact: Get Away Today was the first company authorized by Disney to sell Disneyland tickets back in the 90s).

Disneyland Ticket Prices Quick Answers

How much is a ticket to Disneyland? One day adult Disneyland tickets range from $97 to $185. $97 price tag reflects one park on value day day admission. $185 reflects a hopper ticket to both parks for one peak day admission. But don’t pay this price, keep reading for LOWER priced Disneyland ticket options.

Is it free to go to Disneyland on your birthday? No, valid theme park admission is required for all guests ages 3 and older to enter Disneyland Park and/or California Adventure Park.

How much are Disneyland tickets at the gate?  One day adult Disneyland tickets range from $97 to $185. The more days you visit, the lower the cost is per day.

How do I get discount Disneyland tickets? Pay less than Disneyland gate ticket prices when you buy your tickets from Get Away Today. Use our link to purchase discount Disneyland tickets here. 

Disneyland Ticket Prices 2018

Let’s first start with a few things you need to know when comparing Disneyland ticket prices.

Disneyland Resort began using a demand-based ticket structure in 2016 which only comes into play if you need a one day ticket. One day tickets are by far the most expensive option and you could be paying up to $185 for a one day park hopper ticket. It only makes sense to go for two days instead and pay only $208 with our ticket partner, Get Away Today. Keep reading for all the details.

But if you still insist you can see and do it all in one day at Disneyland . . .

Dates and prices for one day tickets are sorted into three categories:

  • Value: Days when the park is not as crowded, but Disney wants to encourage visitors and increase the number of people who visit on these day. Typically only offered on weekdays, no holidays or school breaks.
  • Regular: Typically Friday, Saturday and Sunday, along with weeks that surround major public holidays, special events and/or school breaks.
  • Peak: Consistently the highest attending days, you will pay top price for visiting on one day during weekends, holidays, school breaks and special events. Again, pricing is $185 for a one day, peak hopper ticket. Yikes!

If you’re booking a hotel in addition to one day tickets, call Get Away Today at 1-855-GET-AWAY and they can add one day tickets (offered only over the phone) to your hotel stay. Be sure to tell them The Happiest Blog on Earth sent you so you can get the lowest prices available on Disneyland vacation packages.

Again, the demand-based ticket structure only matters if you’re visiting for one day.

Will you be going to both Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park on the same day? You will need a park hopper ticket to go between parks on the same day. For one day tickets, park hopping will cost you an extra $50-60. Again, call Get Away Today at 1-855-GET-AWAY to add one day tickets on to your hotel stay (offered only over the phone). Be sure to tell them The Happiest Blog on Earth sent you so you can get the lowest prices available.

The more days you add to your ticket, the less you’ll pay per day for both hopper ticket and one-park-per-day tickets.

About those huge Disneyland discounts— they don’t exist. Reputable ticket resellers do not discount more than a few dollars per ticket, per day because there just isn’t a huge margin to make money. Need more convincing? Read up on Disneyland ticket scams and don’t allow yourself to become a victim.

Disneyland Resort tickets are available via the Disneyland Mobile App, Disneyland Ticket Booths and from Disneyland.com BUT . . .

I only buy from Disneyland directly as a last resort. Because buying direct from Disney means you will be paying the absolute highest price since they do not offer discounts. Contact our Disneyland ticket discount seller to save more instead.

One way around the huge cost of a one day ticket? Book you ticket with a hotel from our partners at Get Away Today. Their one day ticket is only available over the phone with a hotel booking. Call Get Away Today at 1-855-GET-AWAY for their one day add-on optionBe sure to mention code HAPPIEST10 for $10 off your hotel stay. Just tell the reservation agent over the phone you heard about this deal from The Happiest Blog on Earth.

Do I need more than one day at Disneyland? Absolutely. While you can hit some highlights, you’ll be able to enjoy more of what makes Disneyland so magical by visiting over several days. Local to Southern California? You can actually book a multi-day ticket and use it over 14 days. That way you’re still getting the savings of a discount ticket and you don’t have to take any time off work or school (but why not take a ditch day!?)

It’s worth stating again, I only buy from Disneyland as a last resort. Because buying direct from Disney means you will be paying the absolute highest price since they do not offer discounts. 

Since you’re buying multi-day tickets, I’m going to quickly point out Disneyland’s ticket prices here. But because you know buying direct from Disney is your most expensive option we’ll only use these prices as a comparison tool.

    I called Get Away Today at 1-855-GET-AWAY two separate times and spoke to two separate agents and i was told by both that they do not sell single day tickets. the minimum number of days they can sell is two days. this is in direct opposition to what has been written above. can you please help me? we only have one day to spend at Disneyland.

    • Jackie, thank you for asking! The very first question on their FAQs page states that they do sell one day tickets, so I am troubled that you’re hearing differently. Let me contact my rep and see what the problem is.

      • Jackie, I have emailed you a more detailed reply. While they do offer 1 day tickets, it’s generally for customers adding a ticket onto a hotel stay. I’ve updated the article to reflect that as well. Thanks for helping me be more clear in the way I presented the information.
