    Karinne from AZ Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Are we able to just show up and purchase tickets?

    Hey there, hi there, Karinne! Welcome to planDisney. We appreciate you bringing us your ticket question.

    Currently, the Main Entrance Ticket Booths are operating and are selling tickets. While the short answer to your question is yes, it is more complicated than that. I do not suggest waiting and trying to purchase tickets in person. This is because along with tickets, you are also required to have theme park ticket reservations to enter the parks. I would hate for you to show up and purchase tickets only to realize that theme park reservations are fully booked for the day.

    I always suggest purchasing your tickets from the Disneyland website as soon as possible. When you go through the purchasing process, you choose the dates for your tickets. Once you have confirmed your purchase, this also reserves your theme park reservations in one transaction. If something comes up, you can cancel your theme park reservations and your tickets will still be valid until their expiration and ready to use when you rebook theme park reservations for a new date. If you absolutely need to wait until the day of to purchase your tickets, I recommend keeping your eye on the Theme Park Availability Calendar to make sure that the park and dates have availability for reservations. 

    Once you have your tickets and reservations booked, be sure to check out the Entertainment Schedule to see which nighttime spectaculars will be showing that night and their times. I'm so excited to have these performances back!

    Karinne, I hope this answer helps you out and you are able to get tickets and reservations to enjoy a visit at Disneyland Resort. See you real soon!
