    for disneyland if i buy my tickets online do i get them instantly or do i have to wait to get them and how far in advance should i buy them

    Greetings, Jennifer!

    I highly recommend purchasing your Disneyland Resort tickets online. This way, upon arrival, you can head straight to the turnstiles and let the Disney magic begin! Typically, when you purchase your tickets online, you’ll receive an email confirmation within minutes. But, the Disneyland Resort advises Guests that it can take up to 24 hours for the email and tickets to arrive in your inbox. So, I’d recommend purchasing your tickets at least two days in advance just to be safe. 

    Based on your arrival date of April 9, 2019, I would suggest checking out the amazing Limited-Time Special Ticket Offer – it’s a great deal if you plan on spending at least three days at the theme parks. This ticket has a blockout period of April 14-22, 2019, which should work with your timing. One Magic Morning is included with each ticket, plus, you can choose to add Disney MaxPass for an additional $10 per day. I recommend adding Disney MaxPass to your tickets in order to make Disney FASTPASS selections directly from your mobile device, and to get unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos. Be sure to download the Disneyland app to get started planning your Disney days. You can make dining reservations 60 days ahead. Once you're in the parks, use the app to check wait times, find Characters, and even order food and drinks! 

    Please stop by with any additional questions you may have… I’m all EARS!

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
