    We will be traveling cross-country for our first trip to Disneyland in April. We booked hotel & four day park hopper online. When will we get our tickets? As fans of WDW we are excited for DL too but need all the help we can get! Thanks! Tina

    Hi Clint!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited you will be embarking on a journey to the Happiest Place on Earth! While my family also loves visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, I think you will find the history, charm, and uniqueness of the Disneyland Resort to be very special indeed. We also really appreciate the the proximity of the theme parks, hotels, and Downtown Disney District. You can easily get anywhere on Disneyland Resort property by walking!

    You are definitely off to a great start since you have already booked your hotel and purchased theme park tickets! When you purchase tickets online, they will be emailed to you in the form of an eTicket up to 24 hours after you receive your purchase confirmation. You can either choose to print these tickets or show them on your mobile device right at the main gate. Then you will be given a paper ticket to use for the remainder of your trip.

    My biggest tip for your first visit is to consider Disney MaxPass. I highly recommend purchasing this feature on the Disneyland App when you arrive if you haven't already added it to your tickets. Since you are probably familiar with the digital FASTPASS system at the Walt Disney World Resort, this will be very easy to use. I have to say I am partial to Disney MaxPass since this amazing service also includes unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads for the days you purchase it. With all the time we save using MaxPass, we have more time to capture our memories with Disney PhotoPass. It's a win-win!

    Please feel free to return with any questions before you head out on the open road!
