    Hello, I would like to purchase tickets to Disneyland and California Adventure as a birthday gift. However, when I attempt to purchase the tickets, I'm required to select a date. Is it possible to purchase tickets as a gift without a date?

    Hey Adriane!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I couldn’t think of a better birthday gift, than theme park tickets to the Happiest Place on Earth. A birthday is always that much better with a trip to Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. Because of how the theme park ticket system works you would be unable to purchase tickets without a date attached to them. Do not fret as I have a couple of suggestions for you to choose from.

    My first suggestion is to purchase a Tier 6 Ticket and choose any date with your purchase. The person you were gifting it to could then cancel the theme park reservation and make a new reservation for a date that they know they could go to the parks. This isn’t my first choice because if the person uses the ticket for a day that is lower than Tier 6 then you would have paid more money than you would have needed to. If you're ok with that then it would work.

    My recommended option is to purchase a Disney Gift Card in the amount of a Tier 6 ticket. By doing this, the person you are gifting it to could then choose any day and any Tier they wanted. If it’s less than a Tier 6 day, then they would still have money left in the form of a gift card that they could use in the parks for a churro, DOLE Whip, and much more. You could put a little note with the gift card, explaining that you’d like them to use it for a ticket to the parks.

    Well Adriane, I hope one of these ideas works for you. Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
