Disneyland updates online ticketing and park reservation system

by Samantha Davis-Friedman

There’s great news coming out of the Happiest Place on Earth: Disneyland Resort has launched a new way for guests to purchase theme park tickets and make park reservations at the same time.

Currently, theme park capacity at the Disneyland Resort is limited to promote physical distancing and comply with California requirements, so all Disneyland guests ages 3 and older need to have both a ticket and theme park reservation for the same park on the same date.

Instead of the previous two-step system that required guests to purchase park tickets first and then book reservations, the new system allows guests to purchase and book at the same time.

Here’s how it works:

Guests who need to purchase new Disneyland theme park tickets

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

Note: Guests who choose Park Hopper tickets must select their starting park for each day of their visit (subject to availability). They can then begin “hopping” between the parks after 1 p.m. (based on availability).

Guests who already have valid Disneyland theme park tickets

  1. Log into your Disney account on Disneyland.com or the Disneyland app to link valid theme park tickets before 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.
  5. Guests with Park Hopper tickets will select which theme park they wish to start their day (pending availability) and will be able to begin “hopping” between the parks after 1 p.m. (based on availability).
  6. Review and confirm your visit.
  7. 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.

In addition to making sure all guests have both valid tickets and theme park reservations before arrival at the Disneyland Resort, here are a few additional reminders: 

Disneyland app
  • Until further clarification from the state, only California residents may visit the parks and in groups no larger than three households. Proof of residency may be required.
  • Appropriate face coverings must be worn at all times by all guests age two and older (including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine), except while actively eating or drinking and while physically distanced. Eating and drinking are only permitted in designated dining areas while in the theme parks and are not allowed while queuing or in attractions.
  • Download the latest version of the Disneyland app to mobile order food at select locations in the parks with contactless payment, join a virtual queue, check attraction wait times, and more. Be sure notification and location services are activated to get the most out of the app’s features.
