**Disneyland Ticket Help**

Ok, so I've been promising the kids a trip to Disneyland this spring, haven't taken them for more than a decade. Promised it to them for Christmas.

We're leaving in a couple of weeks and I'm STILL looking for a deal somewhere on two-days worth of passes. For all of us to go, it will be about $1000 to just get into the park. That's not including travel, food, etc. That's just to get IN.

Anybody know a way to get discount tickets for 2 adults with 6 children (eldest is staying home)?

I've tried everything I know -- AAA, Costco, etc. Nobody's got much in the way of deal.

I appreciate any suggestions you all might have.

Jeff

Unfortuneatly, Disney is pretty tight fisted with discounts...AAA Etc. are the only ones that I know about...Ocassionally you can get some freebies by sitting through some organizations time share sales pitch but overall it's tough to find a "deal". In the past, folks would purchase the ten day tickets and then use what they wanted and resell the balance on ebay or something. Due to the fingerprint readers, that opportunity is all but gone as well. Sorry I don't have better news...Nobody is better at separating you from your dollars than Disney...My wife and I are addicts of the joint and spend way more that our share feathering the mouses nest...

For me, Disney is worth every penney because of the feeling I get when I walk through the gates...But it's just my wife and I...with six kids, I might be a little less enthused...I've watched the look in kids eyes in the parks...It's breathtaking to watch them experience the magic...But that magic is pricey without a doubt...If it's any consolation...I never feel closer to my parents, even today, than when we are walking Main Street USA eating ice cream...It's sort of out families version of Nirvana!!! My Dad was a corporate lawyer with Prudential for 43 years...28 of those, he wore Mickey Mouse tie clasp...

around disney world area there was a bunch of places selling leftover tickets. If folks dont use the whole pass these places sell the remaining days. Dont ask me how it works, you might want to research a bit

I grew up in California (northern) and we had far more opportunity to go to the Rat Palace than I have ever had with my kids. My Dad tells me that when you count for inflation it was as big a sacrifice then as it is now but I'm not so sure. My sister has annual passes and she takes her daughter all the time.

I do have fond memories of the experiences there. I just hope my children cherish the event because I cannot justify doing this kind of thing often, as many people seem to do.

I recall reading a biography of Walt Disney and learning of his desire for a clean, wholesome and affordable escape for families.

Well, I guess two out of three ain't bad.

I haven't been to Disneyland myself yet...But I was told if you know someone in the Military they can purchase tickets and get them discounted. Not sure exactly how much of a discount they get thou...I also found these sites that claim discounted prices not sure if you have checked them out yet thou..I was also thinking Costco but I see you have looked into that already.

Not sure which days you plan to take your family but it looks as if Disneyland runs a "special" through April 24th I believe. Not sure if you deal with Ebay but they also sell tickets on there. That ehow link I sent also mentioned something about checking with your employer too.
Here is another website maybe to try if you have'nt already

It's to bad these theme parks are all about making big money...the National Park here is the same way. Good Luck!

I am sure you all ready tired this but my cousin saids that if you go to Disneyland.com you might be able to find deals. Not to sure if that is any help, what about going through a travel agency for package deals ?

Thats a toughy. I live in CA and its hard to find any kind of a discount. You might be able to check out craigslist.com, and under the Los Angeles area find someone that is selling some tickets they cant use. Other than that its usually the sticker price. I went there a few months back and its still magaical each time, so I hope you are able to still go and enjoy yourself.

Doesn't California residents get a discounted price? I thought I had read that somewhere. Maybe if Jeff has friends or family in California they could get the tickets for him for a lesser price. Just a thought....
