    Is it true you must pay a fee for getting into each ride after purchasing a general entry ticket?

    Hey there, hi there, Francis! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney.

    I am thrilled to see that the magic of Disneyland Resort has called, and you've answered the call by planning a magical adventure at The Happiest Place on Earth. And it's just around the riverbend! How exciting! But with Theme Park Tickets, Reservations and misinformation that can swirl around as fast as the teacups on Mad Tea Party, sometimes, planning can feel as confusing as it is magical. That's what we at planDisney are here for, Francis, and I'm more than happy to help!

    I think you will be happy to hear that as long as you have valid theme park admission, once you've entered the park, you will not have to pay any extra to enjoy the attractions. Your theme park ticket not only gets you entry to the park; it also allows you to enjoy all of the oh-so-fun attractions, entertainment, character experiences, parades, fireworks, and more for your entire Disney day. Your ticket is your key to the magic, and I can't wait to see what you unlock!

    If you'd like, you can also purchase the Disney Genie+ service to use your Disneyland Resort app to spend less time waiting in line and more time enjoying the magic. Skipping the lines is the name of my Disney game, and since you also get unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from the day, this is a splurge that I definitely recommend! But Hakuna Matata, Francis. It means "no worries." This extra purchase is not required, and you can still enjoy all the attractions and have all the fun without it!

    I hope this helps clear things up, Francis, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you have. You've got a friend in me.

    See ya real soon,
