Hey Everyone, it’s Kimberly with Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. Get Away Today is best known for our Disneyland packages, but we also help families get the lowest Disneyland ticket prices. If you’re staying with family or have a time share, you won’t need a package. But, you can still use Get Away Today to get cheap Disneyland tickets… Well, as cheap as Disneyland tickets get.
Chances are, unless you personally work for Disney or have a really close friend or family member who does, you’re going to have to buy Disneyland tickets. Although a trip to Disneyland is in no way cheap, there are some good deals out there. But, you have to know where to find them and how to recognize them.
1-Park per Day Disneyland Tickets
As far as cheap Disneyland tickets go, 1-Park per Day tickets are Disney’s value option. These tickets cost quite a bit less than the Park Hopper tickets and allow you to visit either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Park each day. You don’t have the same flexibility as the Park Hopper, but if that doesn’t matter to you, your family could save as much as $50 per person. That’s an average saving of $200 – $250 per family!
One thing that I love about the 1-Park per Day ticket is that it truly is a great value. In fact, it’s only about $20 more to do a 2-day 1-Park per Day ticket than it is to do a 1-day Park Hopper ticket! I would much rather spend two days of fun exploring each park than trying to cram everything into one day! Not to mention, you can get a 5-day 1-Park per Day Disneyland ticket for about the same price as a 3-Day Park Hopper ticket.
Disneyland Park Hopper Tickets
The Park Hopper is by far the most popular Disneyland ticket option and with good reason. It lets you go back and forth between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park as many times as you’d like for each day. That is really helpful if you’re doing the nighttime shows. Most families choose to go with a 3-day Park Hopper. They’ll generally do one full day at each park and then split the third day between the two.
Just because you’re getting Disneyland’s most popular and premium ticket, doesn’t mean you have to pay gate prices. You can always get a discount by booking with Get Away Today, but there are two specials that make them an even better deal. First, if you travel during an off-peak season month, you can normally get Adults at Kids’ Prices. This year, we offered Adults at Kids’ Prices for travel in January, February, May, August and September. Not only are those some of the best months to avoid crowds, you can get a little price break in cost.
Secondly, we offer an Extra Day Free ticket. This ticket gets you a 5-day Park Hopper Disneyland ticket for the same price as the 4-day Park Hopper ticket. This is actually my favorite way to experience Disneyland because it is the most flexible. I love being able to go into the parks for a little vacation preview the night before our first full day at Disneyland. I love not feeling like I have to be in Disneyland all day every day to get my money’s worth. And finally, I love that the longer you go, the less you pay per day. It’s not necessarily the cheapest Disneyland ticket, but it’s the best value!
Combo Disneyland Tickets
If you’re planning on visiting any of Southern California’s other theme parks, you can save a lot of money by getting combo tickets. There are two major types of combo tickets. The first is Southern California CityPASS, and the other is our Disneyland/Universal Studios Hollywood Combo Ticket.
The Southern California CityPASS is an amazing deal if you’re doing either LEGOLAND or SeaWorld. It’s an even better deal if you’re doing both! The Southern California CityPASS includes a 3-day Disneyland Park Hopper, and a 1-day ticket to both LEGOLAND and SeaWorld San Diego. The CityPASS only costs a little bit more than a 3-day Park Hopper. When everything is said and done, it’s like you’re getting half off of LEGOLAND and a day at SeaWorld absolutely free. You’re saving about $160 over gate prices, which is HUGE! It’s also such a great option for families with young kids who will love both of the extra parks.
The Disneyland/Universal Studios Hollywood combo tickets are a great option. While both our Disneyland and Universal Studios tickets are already discounted, you get a little extra discount by combining them. In addition to that, you also have some flexibility with these tickets to save even more. You can get the Disneyland tickets in either 2 or 3-day options and as either the Park Hopper or the 1-Park per Day. All of the combo tickets come with 1-day at Universal Studios Hollywood. Or as I like to call it, HARRY POTTER!!! The cheapest option for the combo ticket is the 2-day 1-Park per Day Disneyland Ticket. That way you can spend one full day in each of the three parks; Disneyland, Disney California Adventure Park and Universal Studios Hollywood.
Now, all of the above tickets can be purchased directly with Get Away Today and we guarantee the very lowest price. The only exception to this rule are the military tickets, which really are the rare cheap Disneyland tickets. To qualify for these tickets, you must be active or retired military with a current military ID. You must purchase these tickets directly through Disney. You also must have your current military ID present when you use your military tickets. Disneyland changes their military tickets from time to time, but it ends up being a really good value. We love that Disneyland honors our military.
If you hear of any other cheap Disneyland tickets, buyer beware. You want to be sure that you purchase your Disneyland tickets through a reputable source. Fraudulent ticket sales have gotten better over the last few years, but you may want to read this article in the meantime just to be sure.
