EDIT- Ok, i just realized i did indeed post this in the wrong place. I'm extremely sorry for that. My lack of attention caused me not to see the sub forum RIGHT ABOVE... Nice fail for my first post. I'm sorry. >_<
First of all, hello. I'm new here. I'm an avid Disney fan, having been one my entire life. I've been meaning to join here for a long long time, but only now have i really had a reason. I hope i'm posting this in the correct place. And that this sort of question is actually allowed.
My family (mother and myself) are planning a trip to Disneyland California. We're only really used to booking trips to Disney World. I've never been to the original Disneyland and my mother has only been once when she was like 12 or so (and can't remember it very much, nor was she in a position to be planning vacations at the time lol). So we're kind off noobs in terms of how to approach Disneyland.
I may have more questions later, but my first question is what are people's tips on buying tickets? I would generally believe that you probably shouldn't wait till you get to the gate, i'm currently viewing the tickets online and considering the prices. But i'm basically wondering if there are any sites you can go to to get special deals (no scams or anything of course). We'll almost certainly be staying off property and will likely go for two or three days (not sure yet). Is it best to buy the tickets on the official website, or go somewhere else to get good deals? 2 or 3 days park hoppers sound good so far. I'm looking at the promo offers here-
Tickets & Packages | Tickets & Reservations | Disneyland Resort
I'd appreciate the best advice you can give me, anything. But mostly any advice on how to approach tickets and get the best deals. I'll try to give any info i can as well if i didn't provide enough. We're thinking of going soon, like within this month or so. Again, still not sure about it. But any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
EDIT- I might as well ask this too. What are some suggestions for where to stay off property for as cheap as possible?
