    Hi so this is my first time planning a trip to Disney and I want to go to the special event for Halloween but I want to visit for 2 days and do the one night at the event how how I go forward with purchasing the first day tickets?

    Hi Dalicia! Thanks for dropping by planDisney.

    What a fun plan! Halloween is one of the best times to visit the parks. I love the festive décor, merchandise, entertainment, and yummy treats. My favorite must-do is the Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction overlay. Follow the Disney Parks Blog for all the updates on what you can experience for a spooky good time during your visit.

    I hope you've already secured your Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party tickets, because unfortunately, the party is very popular and all dates have already sold out for the year. Whether you got event tickets or not, there's plenty of festive fun to enjoy in October, and I can walk you through purchasing an admission ticket.

    On a desktop computer, sign into your Disneyland account. Hover over "Parks & Tickets" and select "Theme Park Tickets." Select "Standard Theme Park Ticket" and your number of days. If you only want access to the parks on your first day, you'll be selecting "1" from the options. However, if you want to access Disney California Adventure Park on the second day prior to the Oogie Boogie Bash, you'll need a 2-day ticket, so you should select "2." Next, you'll be asked to select how many adults and how many children you are purchasing tickets for and whether you'd like One Park Per Day or Park Hopper. Park Hopper allows you to visit both parks in one day and you'll be selecting which park you're starting the day in, whereas with One Park Per Day, you'll choose your preferred park. Click "Continue" and Reserve Your Ticket Date from the calendar. Dates are subject to availability and popular times do sometimes sell out, so being flexible can help. Next, select your park: Disney California Adventure Park or Disneyland Park. Click "Continue," which will bring up two additional options, the Disney Genie+ Service and a Parking Voucher. Genie+ is a great way to cut down on time spent in queues to maximize your fun. I think it's especially useful if you're only visiting for one day. Finally, click "Continue" again to complete your transaction.

    I hope this helps. Happy haunts!
