    Is there a benefit to purchasing the parking pass with my ticket in advance? It was offered to me at check out.

    Hi there, Nicole. Thanks for cruising by planDisney!

    I totally get it. You want to know why Disneyland would offer the option to pre-purchase parking before your visit. Will it sell out like certain concert venues? The good news is that it is pretty unlikely. (In my nearly 3 decades of driving myself to the Disneyland Resort, it has never happened to me.) However, recently, I came across a Guest question where they hoped to pay for everything they could before their visit for budgeting purposes. There is also the convenience of not fumbling for your wallet while in the Parking Areas. So that's really the long and short of it, and it is totally up to you whether you pay for parking ahead or pay when you arrive.

    Nicole, if you're visiting the Resort in the next few months, I hope you enjoy the Pixar Fest offerings. My family and I have been twice recently, and there is still so much more to do. The "Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration!" parade was adorable, the perfect mix of the new and nostalgic. I loved the Toy Story characters, while my kids loved seeing the Luca and Turning Red floats. And don't forget all of the awesome foods! You can take a peek at the awesome treats for the event over on the Disney Parks Blog Foodie Guide.

    Nicole, I hope this information helps with a most magical visit. Please visit us again soon!

    See you in the parks,
