    We are travelling over from New Zealand in July. We would like to buy tickets before we go to spread to travel cost out but we are unsure what date we will be visiting the park. Are we able to purchase a gift card to purchase the tickets at a later date?

    Hi there, Gina!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question! It sounds like you are planning an epic trip to the United States. What a fun adventure!

    I recommend purchasing your park tickets and making park reservations for the dates you think you will visit Disneyland Resort. Park reservations can be modified at any time on the Disneyland website, subject to availability. Summer is a popular time of year to visit Disneyland and sometimes park reservations become unavailable, so I would not wait until the last minute to modify a park reservation if a new date is needed. Keep in mind that multi-day tickets purchased through the Disneyland website must be used within 13 days of first use. I suggest working with your travel agent to purchase your tickets and modify any reservation dates ahead of time. After arriving in the United States, you should be able to do this yourself on the Disneyland website under "My Disneyland" and "Ticket and Reservation Details" (as long as there is availability). 

    July is a great time of year to visit Disneyland! My kids love riding Grizzly River Run over and over again in the summer. I always wear a poncho to protect my backpack because we often get soaked on this attraction, but my kids love being drenched! Also, spend some time enjoying Pixar Fest! Taking place from April 26 through August 4, 2024, this friendship-themed festival is full of special experiences for the whole family!

    Gina, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the United States and Disneyland! We hope to see you real soon!

    Magic Happens!
