    What is the cheapest way of buying a 1 day only park hopper ticket for Disneyland/ California Adventure? As far as I can see the only way is direct through the park. Am I right?

    Greetings, Nicola!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'd love to help you plan your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    You can always check the Special Offers page online to see current discounts for Disneyland Resort park tickets and hotel stays. Currently there are no discounts on a single-day admission ticket, but there are some ways you can still save on your visit. Since prices for 1-Day Park Hopper tickets vary by date, you can choose a day on the calendar during a "Value" period. Right now there are Value day tickets available during September 2019. You can purchase tickets online, on the Disneyland app, or when you arrive at a Main Entrance ticket booth.

    If looking to budget and save while not missing out on any of the magic, I'd love to share some of my tips. First, I like to take advantage of complimentary water cups throughout both parks at Quick Service restaurants instead of buying sodas. Also, you can get some inexpensive souvenirs like Pressed Coins or a free celebration button from City Hall in Disneyland Park. I also like to purchase Disney Gift Cards prior to arriving to budget my spending. Since these can be used at almost every merchandise and dining location in the parks, it is easy to keep track of my spending on vacation.

    I hope this helps, and I wish you a magical day!
