    can you buy tickets at the gate?

    Hi there, Nina! Thanks for stopping by planDisney! I see that you are just one night away from the magic at the Happiest Place on Earth! I will send this note with a little extra pixie dust and hope that it makes it to you in time. 

    The good news is that tickets are still available for purchase at Main Gate Ticket Booths in the Esplanade between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. One thing to note is that all Guests are now required to have a theme park reservation in addition to a theme park ticket to enter the parks. When you buy tickets in advance on the website or within the Disneyland Mobile App, you are able to make a reservation at the time of purchase to guarantee entry into your preferred park. If you are purchasing them at the ticket booth for same-day entry, there is a chance that there may not be reservations available for that day. Reservations are limited and subject to availability. I just took a look at the theme park reservation calendar for tomorrow and it looks like reservations for a Park Hopper Ticket are still available! You would choose the park where you would like to start your day with hopping available after 1 p.m. For a One Park Per Day Ticket, Disney California Adventure Park still has reservations. Guests are always modifying their plans, so there's a chance that someone will cancel and Disneyland Park might become available for tomorrow, but there is no guarantee. Guests need to cancel reservations by midnight, so might be worth checking the calendar later tonight! 

    If you do make it to Disneyland Resort tomorrow, I wanted to make sure you have the entertainment schedule handy in case there are any shows or characters you can't miss! Also, have you heard of the Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability option in the app? This new feature makes way for same-day dining reservations! When you scan into the parks, simply open the app, click on the "+" in the bottom navigation bar, and choose "Order Food". Once you fill in your party size and the time of day you're looking to eat, you will be able to see if there are any restaurants with last minute openings. The best part is that you can add your name to a list from almost anywhere in the park! I've even heard a few friends having luck getting a table at Blue Bayou Restaurant, my personal favorite!

    Nina, I truly hope you find yourself in the magic tomorrow. If you have any more questions, we are always here for you at planDisney!

    Keep wishing on those stars,

Hello from Philly! Disney Parks have been my heart and soul since my 3-year old feet first hit Main Street, U.S.A. Nothing compares to the burst of pure joy, nostalgia and magic that I feel EVERY time I enter the gates!

Whether it's park days with friends, multi-generational trips, toddling around with kids or flying solo, I'm ready to help you personalize the magic at the Happiest Place On Earth!
