    What do Tier 3 tickets mean?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you're dreaming about a Disneyland Resort vacation, and you've come to the right place. We'd love to play a small part in helping all your Disney dreams come true!

    The tier structure is the system Disney put in place on 1-Day tickets to allow for price variances based on the time you're visiting. Tickets range from Tier 1 to Tier 5, and the higher the tier, the higher the cost, but also the more flexibility to use the ticket. For example, if you want to visit on a Tuesday in May, you'll be able to save some money and buy a lower-tiered ticket than if you're looking at a Saturday in June. I see that you're interested in visiting on June 23rd, and you're exactly right. A Tier 3 Ticket will be valid for that day! While you could also use a Tier 4 or Tier 5 ticket, there's no need to spend the extra money on your ticket as long as you're sure you'll be using it on a day where a Tier 3 ticket is also valid. If you had a lower-tiered ticket, however, it would not be valid for a prime summer date.

    Do note, though, that theme park reservations are now required in addition to valid tickets to be able to enter the parks. When you go through the ticket purchase process, it will now have you make your reservation first, then purchase your tickets, and it will automagically show you both the price differences based on the different days you're considering and the current reservation availability. To keep things as simple as possible, I'd recommend using the ticketing page to make your plans. It will take care of everything for you!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Jennifer! I'm sending pixie dust that your plans come together perfectly and you have a truly magical visit!
