The original Disneyland Park is right across the street from the newer park called Disney’s California Adventure Park.

They are are considered separate parks with separate entrances.



Park Hopper Tickets

If you can, I highly suggest you buy the park hopper tickets.

When you buy this one “Park Hopper” ticket it allows you to go back and forth between the Disneyland Park and California Adventure park on the same day.

(If you don’t know the difference between Disneyland and California Adventure click here.)


I loved this option because if there was big lines at a desired ride in Disneyland, I could go across the street to California Adventure and go on rides there if they weren’t as busy.



Below are the prices listed on the official Disneyland website as of February 2020 (US Dollars)

To see all the details and restrictions placed on the tickets (such as when you have to use them by) please click here.

In case you’re reading this far into the future, click here to go to Disneyland’s official ticket info page. to see current pricing.

(Keep in mind that I doubt prices will go down, but they may go up.)


Who needs a ticket? (What ages?)

Children under 3 years old don’t need a ticket.

Children aged 3-9 years old get an “Ages 3-9” Ticket

Anyone older than 10 years old, gets a “Ages 10+” Ticket.

What other prices to consider ?

How much to get into Disneyland… well keep in mind that the price to get into Disneyland, so the actual admission tickets, are just one thing you need to keep in mind when you’re planning your trip to Disneyland.


Price of Food

Once you are in the gate you still need to buy food.

You should allot at least $10-$15 per meal per person.

If you want to save a little money at Disneyland, you can bring in your own food. Please see my article here about how to save money at Disneyland.


And take advantage if your hotel offers a free breakfast.

Price of drinks

The cost of sodas in Disneyland are about $4 to $5 per drink.

You can see in the photo above from the “Edelweiss Snacks” hut (near the Matterhorn) in Disneyland, that the cost of soft drinks is $4 for a regular size and $4.49 for a large size.


There is no alcohol allowed in the original Disneyland park, but you can find alcoholic beverages in Disney California Adventure Park.

I didn’t drink while I was there, so I’m sorry I don’t know how much they cost or what they offer…. but this article may help you.



To save yourself some money, and so that you don’t have to drink pop all day, I suggest you bring your own water bottle in with you.

There are lots of water fountains in the parks to fill up your bottle.

Below is my favorite water fountain which is located in ToonTown in Disneyland.

Why do you want to go to Disneyland?

I enjoyed the park more than I thought I would. Before I went I had a hard time imaging such a big place.

Walt Disney opened the original Disneyland Park in 1955. It was the only park he saw opened before he died in 1966. He was a man with big dreams that acted on them.

I have only been to the park once so far. I went in September of 2019. So the park was 64 years old when I went and it is amazingly well kept and clean.

There are so many details in the park.

Yes there are rides, but they aren’t many “thrill rides.” It is a world-class theme park.

So regardless of why you wan to go, I’m sure you’ll have fun.

Just don’t stress over the money once you’re there.

You don’t wan to spend the money to go to the parks only to spoil it for yourself because you’re in a terrible mood thinking about how much you spent.

Try to relax and take it all in.

Examine the artistry and craftsmanship that went into everything at the park.
