What should be included:
  • All park rides[5] and shows are included in the price of admission.
  • For families traveling with infants or very young children, a Baby Center[6] is available at each park. These quiet nooks include nursing and bottle-feeding areas along with changing stations.
Additional costs:
  • All shows are free at each park unless food is included. World of Color[7] is a light, water and sound show that appears nightly at California Adventure. Reserved seating[8] , including a pre-packaged picnic meal, is available for about $16 each or $60 per family.
  • Arcade games at each park are priced separately and typically cost $1 -$2, depending on the game.
  • Dining options[9] are plentiful in each park. On-the-go meals at Disneyland food carts cost about $6-$12 per person or around $30-$40 per familym while counter service is $10-$23 per person or $45-$66 for four. For a sit-down meal, traditional American fare is offered at several locations for about $7-$15 per person or $45-$75 per family. A twilight-lit fine dining experience is found at the Blue Bayou[10] with prices starting around $30-$40 per person or about $140 for a family of four.
  • With the exception of Club 33[11] - a membership-only club in New Orleans Square in Disneyland which claims to have an 18-year waiting list -- alcohol is not sold in Disneyland. However, alcoholic beverages[12] are offered in California Adventure starting around $6-$7 a cup for beer, about $10 or more per glass of wine or around $10 for a margarita.
  • For families traveling with cats or dogs, a kennel[13] is available just outside the entrance gate for $20 per day, per pet. Owners are asked to visit their pet every four to five hours and take them for a walk in the enclosed pet area. No overnight accommodations are available.
Discounts:
  • Buying tickets in three to six multiple-day increments varies from $209 for adults and $183 for children or about $600 per family, up to about $230 for children and $250 for adults or $965 per family. Prices include a $10-$20 discount if three-day plus tickets are purchased online. Multiple-day packages of three or more days also include one Magic Morning which allows an hour early admission to selected attractions at Disneyland on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday.
  • The Southern California City Pass[14] now includes a reduced rate of $276 for adults and $229 for children or about $1,010 per family for a three-day Park Hopper ticket that also includes admission to Universal Studios Hollywood, Sea World Adventure Park and entrance to either the San Diego Zoo or the San Diego Wild Animal Park.
