Disneyland Resort Streamlines Ticketing and Reservation System

The Disneyland Resort has streamlined the system for purchasing tickets and making park reservations. Disneyland continues to limit capacity in its parks and is continuing to utilize park reservations for guests wanting to visit. This means that guests need both a valid ticket and a park reservation ahead of time in order to visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. Up until today, this process was split in two. A ticket would first need to be purchased and then a theme park reservation could be then made.

Today Disneyland Resort announced that guests can now purchase a theme park ticket and make the reservation for the ticket together. Here is the way that it can be done:

Purchasing a Ticket and Make a Reservation Together
  1. Start at Disneyland.com/ParkReservations and click “Select Ticket.”
  2. Select the number of days you wish to visit the parks.
  3. Choose the number of tickets you need for all guests in your party, ages 3 and up.
  4. Select your ticket type – one park per day, or Park Hopper tickets.
  5. Pick a date and park for your theme park reservation, subject to availability.

• If you choose Park Hopper tickets, select your starting park for each day of your visit, subject to availability. You can then begin crossing over between the parks after 1 p.m. that day (based on availability)!

  1. For added convenience, you may now select the add-on option of purchasing parking vouchers, in advance.
  2. Review your current selections, and purchase!

For those who have already purchased a ticket, there is now a separate reservation tool that can be utilized. Here is how this tool works:

Making Reservations With Valid Ticket
  1. Log into your Disney account on Disneyland.com or the Disneyland app to link valid theme park tickets prior to accessing the park reservation system.
  2. Head to Disneyland.com/ParkReservations and click “Make Park Reservation.”
  3. Create your party.
  4. Select the day and theme park you’d like to visit. Guests with Park Hopper tickets will select which theme park they wish to start their day, pending availability, and then will be able to begin crossing over between the parks after 1 p.m. that day (based on availability).
  5. Review, and confirm your visit! And as a reminder, guests with multi-day tickets will be required to make a separate park reservation for each day they plan to visit the theme parks.

Remember, both a valid theme park ticket and reservation is required in order to visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. There are also some other things to take note of currently:

  • Currently, only California residents are permitted to visit the Disneyland Resort theme parks. Proof of residency may be required.
  • Groups from California can be no larger than three households.
  • Face coverings are still required for anyone two years old or older unless in a dining area while actively eating and drinking while physically distanced from other parties.
    • This applies to those who are vaccinated as well.
  • It is highly suggested that guests utilize the Disneyland app for mobile orders, park tickets, boarding groups, and more. Make sure and download it before heading to the parks!
