    Hi there, I’m looking to visit Disneyland on either October 4th or the 5th for one day with my husband and daughter(4). What tickets should we get? I’m a little confused about the tiers and exclusion dates. Thank you, Ashlyn

    Hi Ashlyn,

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm thrilled to hear that you and your family are going to get to experience the magic of The Happiest Place on Earth this fall! With all of the Halloween touches around the Resort, you're going to have a spooktacular time, and I'd be happy to help straighten everything out for you so you can get your plans made and start counting down the days until your Disneyland Resort adventure begins!

    First, I'd encourage you to check the availability calendar. The week of your visit does have limited availability on a couple of days, and with theme park reservations required for entry, you'll want to make sure that you'll be able to visit your preferred park(s) on your preferred day! Next, I'm happy to share that as long as you know for sure which day you'll be visiting, the system will take care of everything for you. If you end up visiting on October 4th, you'll need a Tier 4 ticket, but if you want to wait until October 5th, you'll only need a Tier 2 ticket. The only time that it could be an issue is if you purchase the Tier 2 ticket, planning to visit on the 5th, and then change your plans later on. You would possibly need to upgrade your ticket to a higher tier before you'd be able to make a theme park reservation and enter a park, depending on the new day you choose.

    My advice? If your dates are pretty set, purchase whichever ticket date works for you, and let the system worry about the tier for you. If your dates are not set, you may want to purchase tickets for a Tier 4 or 5 date so that you have more flexibility as to when you can use them. When you purchase directly from Disney, you'll make your theme park reservations during the checkout process, so you'll be all set with those! If your plans do end up changing, you'll simply want to cancel your current theme park reservations and make new ones on the new date of your choosing.

    I hope this helps, Ashlyn! Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, and please come back and see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope you and your family have a truly magical vacation together!
