    I'm finding cheaper Disneyland prices when I quote tickets and hotel separately. What are the disadvantages to not purchasing a Dland vacation package?

    Hi, Laura!

    I’m so glad to hear you’re thinking of planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort! There’s so much new magic to discover, especially with the addition of Fantasy Faire, a whimsical storybook village adjacent to Sleeping Beauty Castle, and the all-new show “Mickey and the Magical Map” at Disneyland Park. 

    Vacation packages from the official Walt Disney Travel Company include park tickets and a hotel stay at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels or one of the more than 40 Good Neighbor Hotels located near the resort, in addition to other special perks and surprises. There are three Disneyland Resort vacation packages available with varying prices, so it’s important to compare apples to apples, so to speak. For example, purchasing 2-Day Single Park tickets and a hotel room at a Good Neighbor Hotel separately will likely have a lower overall cost than the 2013 Resort Hotel package, which includes Park Hopper tickets and accommodations at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. 

    One benefit of purchasing a vacation package is that all of your travel documents will arrive together in advance, including your theme park tickets, so you’ll be ready to start the fun as soon as you arrive at the resort. Other fun extras that come with the 2013 vacation packages are a 5"x7" attraction photo and digital photo download at Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or California Screamin', in addition to an exclusive Walt Disney Travel Company collectible pin, lanyard and luggage tag for everyone in your party. For more information or for personalized assistance with selecting the package that’s best for your family, call the Walt Disney Travel Company at (714) 520-5050.

    I hope this helps, Laura, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted vacation to “The Happiest Place on Earth!”

    Wishing you magic,
