    My daughter and I want to visit Disneyland April 3-6 but have not bought tickets yet. Can we get tickets at the gate? Any and all information and instructions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Jobina!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so happy that you found us hEAR. I'm happy to be your planEAR today!

    This is a tricky one. As part of the reopening health and safety precautions put in place last yEAR, Guests have been encouraged to book their Theme Park Admission Tickets online or through their Disneyland Mobile App. It's possible that there could be a few tickets left for sale at the Ticket Booths, but it's risky. Another precaution put in place was the need for Park Pass Reservations, which tell Mickey which theme park you plan to play in on each day of your visit. Park Pass Reservations open for booking 120 days in advance, and as those start to fill up Disney will pause online ticket sales which is what you're currently seeing. If the tickets are indeed sold out for your desired Disney dates, there are lot of other wonderful things to do in sunny Southern California

    It's possible that you could purchase Disneyland Theme Park Admission Tickets from a third-party vendor, like a blogger who is also an authorized Disney ticket reseller. I know that when we lived in California I'd often see Disneyland Ticket Gift Cards for sale at Target or the local grocery store. You can buy these tickets to try to use this upcoming week, however, you'll still need Park Pass Reservations for those dates. Park Pass Reservations are fluid in that as other guests cancel or change their plans you'll have the chance to snag their dropped reservations. This does happen from time to time, especially the day before, so be sure to check the Park Pass Reservation Calendar, and check it often. If you purchase these tickets and still cannot get Park Pass Reservations for this next week, your tickets should be valid for the rest of the yEAR so you could plan a make-up trip.

    The best bet you'd have in securing Park Pass Reservations for the 3rd through 6th would be by staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel as the hotel guests have access to a separate allotment of Park Pass Reservations. At the time of this writing, Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel still has availability for the nights during your desired Disney days, and hEARs the Disneyland Hotel Guest Park Pass Reservation Availability calendar.

    I'm so sorry this wasn't the best news you were sEARching for, Jobina. I'll think some happy thoughts and hope that you're able to get a pinch of Pixie Dust and luck into some theme park admission tickets at the Ticket Booths! And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
