    Can I buy tickets at the front door on Christmas Day

    Hi there, Nancy!

    Oh! You’re making me feel nostalgic. My very first visit to the Disneyland Resort was on Christmas Day many years ago. Those are precious memories for me. I hope I can offer some tips that may help you make similar memories of your own.

    While it is possible to purchase tickets in person at the Disneyland Resort, I highly recommend buying tickets ahead of time online or using the Disneyland mobile app. That is because even a ticket purchased in person must also have a theme park reservation booked to enter the theme parks. Of course, for especially popular days, you may see that park reservations have run out. In such cases, if you don’t have flexibility in your dates, you may wish to keep a sharp eye on the theme park reservation availability calendar. Should other Guests need to change plans, you may be able to pick up their canceled park reservations.

    Tony’s Tip: If you are a Guest of one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, there is another option that may interest you. On-site Guests have access to an additional pool of theme park reservations. Although a stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel doesn’t guarantee entrance to the theme parks, this additional park reservation availability helps quite a bit. On-site Guests also get access to many other benefits such as early entry at the theme parks.

    Nancy, I’m wishing on a star that you find the theme park reservation availability you are looking for to help make your Holiday dreams come true.
