    We arrive at Hotel Anaheim on August 16th and will purchase 5 tickets for my family on August 17th into the Disney Land Park for a day. Is it best to follow the link and purchase? Then download the Disney App after? Thanks Donna

    Hi, Donna! 

    Thank you very much for visiting planDisney this week. I can't imagine how excited you must be to get to Anaheim and experience the Disneyland Resort! 

    Given that the Disney Parks require park reservations on both coasts, I suggest creating a Disney account and purchasing your tickets online as soon as possible. These reservations can sell out, so the best strategy is to purchase your tickets online while making reservations in the process. The prices will be identical, so there's a massive advantage in buying your tickets in advance!

    After buying your tickets, you can download the Disneyland Mobile App and use it once you get to the Disneyland Resort. You'll use it to scan your tickets at the turnstiles, use Genie+ to reserve fast access to select attractions, and order food in advance. It really is the best compass you can use at the theme parks, and I hope you can make the most of it!

    I hope you have a wonderful experience in California, Donna! Please let us know if you have any more questions, okay?

    May the magic be with you,
