    How are in advance can I buy tickets for a future date?

    Hey there, hi there, Natalie!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with your question! I know many people who like to purchase tickets far in advance to take advantage of current ticket prices, so I can totally understand if you would like to secure some tickets just to keep handy. That's not a bad strategy if you know that you're definitely going to be visiting within the next year or so.

    To answer your question, you may purchase Theme Park Tickets as far in advance as you'd like as long as the expiration date will fall within the desired dates of your visit. One-day tickets purchased today would expire on December 30, 2024 and multi-day tickets would expire on January 12, 2025 (or 13 days after first use, whichever comes first). When purchasing tickets through the Disneyland website, part of the process will make you pick specific dates for your visit. Reservations are only available 120 days in advance, so you will be limited to those dates, but you may easily go back into the system and cancel those reservations later. It's always nice to free up those slots for guests who are visiting that day. Once you do know when you'd like to visit, just visit the Tickets and Reservations page to make new reservations. And even if the ticket expires, Disney will allow you to apply the cost of a wholly unused, expired ticket towards the purchase of a new ticket of equal or greater value.

    Good luck with your planning, Natalie, and I hope you can make it to the Happiest Place on Earth soon! It's always a great time to visit the Disneyland Resort because there's always something going on and so much to see! Please visit us again anytime if you need more tips or advice from planDisney! You're always welcome here.

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
