Never been there, but thinking of taking my 2 yr old there the first week of Jan.
Is it 3 days a little bit too much? How's the line up?

I'm thinking of taking my daughter to Disney Land to see some of the princesses since we'll be in the area.

Does anyone have any suggestions on getting a deal on tickets for one day or any advice on the visit? Thanks.
Unfortunately there aren't really any savings on 1 or 2 day tickets. 3 days is where the savings really kick in, especially with the extra 25% off currently being offered. There's easily enough to do at Disneyland to spend 3 days there but if you don't have the time then you might just have to bite the bullet and pay the 1 day price if you really want to go.

It'd just be a day trip from where we are staying, so we'd only be there one day. Plus she's only 4 so wouldn't really do any rides, just go see the princesses. Thanks for letting me know!

wait for Starwars land :)

if not, i would not wait last minute to buy tickets...you can fast pass select and restaurant reservation earlier (if one day trip...dont bother; it will be a little stressful getting the fastpass at the park)

Book the tickets? I have the hotel booked already at the Disney Swan resort and I should get the 60 day fast passes. So I am planning on getting the tickets just before the 60 day mark which should be in February. So this deal should still be around February since it says expiry date is March?
Last I checked, Swan/Dolphin are not considered Disney properties. They're owned by spg...

Woah is this loveorlandotickets.ca legit? I thought Disney sites say to never buy from 3rd party sites? I guess Expedia and other travel sites.

Edit: NVM, after doing FOREX, a 2 day pass is ~$586CAD direct through Disney vs $620 through loveorlandotickets.ca. Oh wellz.
Totally legit. Been using them for 4 years of travelling to Disney / Universal. It's usually a little bit cheaper than Undercovertourist, and it's already in CDN so no Forex fees

This is true but they still get many of the Disney resort benefits including booking FastPass+ at 60 days out.

Damn, I didn't know that. These used to be 10k/12k points a night with fifth night free. Totally would've done that instead of booking the first night at the lake buena vista best western to get the disney benefits and the rest at a marriott. Oh well....

The week of the 1-6 should be very busy due to Christmas break. The week following will be very quiet, prices drop into "value" season.

At 2, you're probably going to see more benefits than they are. The best park would be magic kingdom followed (likely) by animal kingdom, Hollywood then Epcot. You could spend a couple days there but the crappy part at 2 years is that they now need a ticket ($$).

What they might enjoy is riding around on the monorails, character meals (at resorts). Things that don't necessarily need a park ticket for. Lots of things to do outside the parks themselves.

You could also check out sea world or Legoland when you're in the area and wanting to venture off Disney property.

Darn it!! Purchased 5 day pass a month ago through ticketsatwork for $365 per person USD. This was significantly cheaper than Disney or UC Tourist site at the time. This deal makes it almost $30 cheaper per person.

Oh well. I'm there within the next 30 days so this would have been too risky to wait as I wouldn't have been able to book the rides on FP+

Happened to me too... I saw a 4 day + 2 days free ticket and jumped at the opportunity. Lost ~60$ USD, but could have been worse.

Great tips but I wanted to mention that children under 3 are free.

Thanks.
Need to compare with Costco SoCal pass if you're visiting San Diego too
https://www.costco.ca/2018-Southern-Cal ... 92507.html
I actually bought the socal pass from Costco in July in conjunction with the 5x aeroplan promo. Seemed like a really good value to me. At $400, it's actually $100 less than buying directly from citypass. We also plan on adding an extra day at legoland for $25.

5 parks for $400 CAD sounds great to me. My kids are late risers so we may not get to use the magic morning. We'll see.

Thing to note is that the socal citypass is a physical card and not just an e-ticket. It took a week or 2 to show up at my door.

What's the best hotel options for Universal to get Express pass? Also do others agree that mid-week Oct express pass is likely not needed.
If you're already booked into a hotel I wouldn't spend the money to stay on-site just for the Express passes, especially with a mid-October visit. You should be fine as long as you avoid the Hallowe'en Horror Nights.
Let them know that it is I, Aziz Hamid!
