    Can I buy entry tickets for a specific date I know I will be there? I am taking my mom there for Valentine's Day and I'm worried about the tickets selling out.

    Hey Alicia!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Taking your mom to the Disneyland Resort will be such a sweet gift for her.

    You’re going to win the best daughter award for such a sweet gesture. I’m glad to see you’re planning ahead for your ticket purchase. You can buy your Park Ticket ahead of time on the Disneyland Mobile App or the Disneyland Resort website. You’ll pick the day you're going so that you purchase the correct tier of tickets. February 14th is a Peak Day so you will need a 1-day Peak Ticket if only going for one day. Now that you’ve secured a ticket, you won’t have to worry about tickets selling out. If you’re worried about the park hitting capacity, then make sure you scan in early for the day. If you’re really worried about it then I would make a dining reservation inside the park for the evening time. Typically I’ve seen that when the parks hit capacity, those that have already been scanned into the park or have a dining reservation, are let back into the park. This of course is a worse case scenario. To be honest, the parks only occasionally hit capacity the last two weeks of the year during the holidays or when there is a major event happening at the parks. While I do think it will be a busy day, I would be very surprised if the parks hit capacity on Valentine’s day.

    To help you make the most out of your day at the parks, consider adding Disney MaxPass to your ticket. You’ll be able to skip the main line and make Disney FASTPASS selections right from your Mobile device. You can also make a new Disney FASTPASS selection every 90 minutes. If you don’t use Disney MaxPass you’ll make selections every 120 minutes and need to make the selections from kiosks at the ride entrances. As you can see, Disney MaxPass is a time saver and super convenient! Also included with MaxPass is unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads from your pictures at the parks and rides. 

    Well Alicia, I hope you and your mom have the best time at the Happiest Place on Earth! I hope that when my kids grow up they’ll still want to go to the parks with me for a day full of fun.

    Remember, always believe in the magic!
