Discount Tickets Disneyland California are out there, you just have to know where to look. I was chatting with my friend the other day. She and her husband wanted to take their two children (aged 8 and 12) to Disneyland in February 2014. She started doing a little research to see how it would affect her budget. First, she went to the Disneyland website to check ticket prices. They want a four-day Hopper with Magic Morning passes. The regular prices for that are $230 for their eight-year-old and $250 for the rest of them. That’s a grand total of $980 just for the Disneyland tickets. I could see her stress level rising.
Then she started talking about hotels and plane tickets. Their hotel of choice costs $2,595.00 for four nights. A plane ticket for each family member added up to $828. Their four-day getaway to Disneyland could end up costing them more than $4,400, she told me. I then reminded her that they would probably want to buy a few souvenirs and eat a couple of times a day. I didn’t mean to stress her out more, but when I saw her cover her hands with her face, I knew I had said the wrong thing. I could almost see her dream flying away. Or maybe it was carried off in the talons of a hungry hawk…

Expect to pay between 80 and 95 percent of the ticket price. But consider my friend: four days of tickets for her family of four would have cost $980. A 20 percent discount would save her and her family almost $200. Even a 5 percent discount would save her $50.
