    If I buy tickets on Dec 26 for the daytime, do I need to buy another ticket for the night or I can stay in the park all day long until it closes?

    Hey there, Laurel!

    Welcome to planDisney and we're so happy to see you here! Oh boy, it sounds like you have plans to visit the Happiest Place on Earth during the Merriest Time at the Resort, the Holiday Season! It's one of the most beautiful times to visit and my sister makes it a point to bring her kids every year just to enjoy the decorations.

    When you purchase a Disneyland Resort Theme Park Ticket, it entitles you to visit one or both Parks (depending on if you bought a One Park Per Day or Park Hopper Ticket) during normal operating hours for that day. As of the writing of this response, Disney has not announced any reason for the Parks to close early that day (such as a special ticketed After Hours Event) so you will be able to stay in the Parks from open to close (including nighttime) and have a fun-filled, magical and festive day!

    And the great news is that Holiday offerings at the Disneyland Resort will extend all the way into January, so you'll still be able to enjoy attraction overlays such as Haunted Mansion Holiday and "it's a small world" Holiday. If you didn't get enough festive foods, you'll find plenty more at the Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure. 

    I hope that was helpful for you, Laurel. Don't forget to make your dining reservations beginning 60 days in advance of your visit. If you need any more planning advice from us, please feel free to write again anytime! You're always welcome at planDisney! Until next time!

    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
