    How can I start getting tickets or paying for them before I actually go to Disneyland?

    Hey Frances!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    February is a great time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth. Make sure you either purchase a Park Hopper Ticket or plan a day to visit Disney California Adventure Park. The Lunar New Year Celebration at Disney California Adventure Park typically runs sometime from the middle of January to the middle of February so it looks like it'll be just in time for your visit. This multicultural celebration has some of my favorite food items that are only available during this time. You'll also find special merchandise and even your favorite characters dressed for the occasion.

    Theme park tickets to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park can be purchased up to 120 days in advance. It's still a little bit early to purchase tickets for your February trip as you can only purchase tickets from now through some days in December. If you're looking to start paying for your tickets right now I would recommend starting to purchase Disney Gift Cards. My family does this all the time and it really helps to save up for a trip. If you start purchasing Disney Gift Cards weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly you should have some of the money saved up or maybe even all of it to purchase your tickets once you hit that 120 day mark. For a February trip you should be able to purchase your tickets starting in  October. Once you're ready to purchase your tickets you’ll need to combine them into one which you can do on the Disney Gift Card website.

    Well Frances, I hope you found this information useful and if you need anything else please come back and let us know. 

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
