    Can I buy tickets at the gate if reservations are no longer available online?

    Hi there, Cindy!

    Welcome to planDisney! I couldn't help but think of the lovely and kind Cinderella when I saw your name. I hope your life is just as magical as hers!

    Guests currently need both a valid theme park ticket and a theme park reservation to visit the parks. While tickets may be purchased at the ticket booths outside of the parks, if there are no theme park reservations available then guests cannot enter the parks that day. I'm sorry! The best thing to do is check theme park reservation availability online and purchase your tickets in advance. Then you know you aren't risking having the clock strike midnight on your chance to visit!

    The good news is that with a little bit of planning you can enjoy some amazing festivals and events this year at the Disneyland Resort! For example, Lunar New Year celebrations are about to begin and that means lots of food, characters, and entertainment coming to Disney California Adventure Park! It's one of my favorite times of year to visit, enjoy a unique snack, and leave a wish on the Wishing Wall. 

    Cindy, I hope you're able to plan a visit to the parks very soon!

    Keep moving forward!
