The excitement and wonder of seeing all their favorite Disney characters, riding the specially designed rides, and enjoying the parades, shows, etc. is something many children wish for, but the price of tickets to enter the park can be a bit staggering. The following is a look at ways you can get Disneyland tickets for less:

  1. eBay. There are several people who will sell you Disneyland tickets on eBay. These are usually tickets that they got as a gift, the remaining days on a multiple day Park Hopper pass, or through someone who gets them at a discount already.  In some cases there are some stipulations on these tickets. For example, the person selling the ticket may require you to meet them outside of the park to pick up the tickets, and meet them after you are finished at the park to return them. Sometimes this makes the tickets seem a little sketchy but the fact is, they are usually legitimate.  The cost per ticket on these auctions usually ends up being about $50 a day, which is a savings, but may not be the cheapest option out there. However, if you only want to go for one day, this is probably the cheapest option.
  2. Multiple day passes. One great way to get cheaper Disneyland tickets is to go in with someone that is planning a trip near the same time you are. You can get multiple day park hopper passes that allow you into both Disneyland and California Adventure for a set number of days.  If you do this and split the cost the per day entry is going to be significantly less. For example, you can get a 6 day park hopper pass for just under $200 for an adult. This makes the per day entrance cost about $33. If you were to buy a one day pass you would spend $69 for one park or $94 for both. These passes have to be used within 14 days of the first use, and so you have to make sure your dates coordinate in such a way to make it possible. If you do not know anyone who is going, or who will split a pass with you, you can always post an ad on Craigslist or a similar online classifieds site, and will generally get a taker willing to split the cost with you. A  3 day ticket is going to cost an adult about $179, so if you were to add 3 more days it would only be an additional $30-$40, making it well worth it if you can find someone to split it with you.
  3. Southern California City Pass. This is a promotional pass that includes entrance into many of the various attractions in Southern California, such as Sea World, etc. It gets you entrance into 5 places, and one of those is a 3 day park hopper pass. The cost for this is about $250 for an adult, which means you get several days worth of fun for one low price. If you are going to be staying in the area about a week, this is a great way to save money, see Disneyland, and do other things as well.
