    We will be travelling to Disneyland in November and staying off property (1 adult, 2 seniors). We usually go to WDW and stay on property. As Canadian we won't have our cell phones to access tickets etc - so will we get paper tickets?

    Hi there, Amanda!

    Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so excited that you're planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort, there's nothing that quite compares to the original Disney magic!

    Purchasing Disneyland Park Tickets online is super easy, I love that the process includes making your park reservations at the same time. Your tickets will be linked to your Disney account, so you can view them in the Disneyland Mobile App. I recommend taking screenshots of your tickets in the app before you leave home, so you'll be able to access them even if you don't have cellular service during your trip. I did chat with a Cast Member and they said you're also welcome to request a paper ticket at the ticket booths outside the parks, but there's no guarantee they'll be able to provide one.   

    While it sounds like you won't have international phone service, you should still be able to use the Disneyland Mobile App on complementary Wi-Fi networks in the parks. I recommend putting your mobile device in airplane mode so it isn't searching for networks, then using the app during your visit.  

    The app is necessary for many services around the parks, including Disney Genie+ and Mobile Ordering at select locations. It's also the easiest way to preview your Disney PhotoPass photos, check wait times for attractions, and see the daily entertainment schedule.

    Amanda, it looks like you still have a little while before your trip. I hope you're enjoying counting down the days! Soon it will be time to make dining reservations (yum!) and get packing. If you have more planning questions I would be happy to help you. Just send me a note and I'll be back in a flash with the pixie dust!

    Keep moving forward!
