Let’s start with planning. The new mobile site allows you to book hotel rooms, make dining reservations, and purchase park tickets right on your mobile device. You can even add options like transportation and other area attractions. Driving to the Disneyland Resort? You can also purchase pre-paid parking vouchers to make your arrival even easier.

Once your travel dates are selected, you can research park hours, entertainment schedules and even find height requirements and information on your favorite Disneyland Resort attractions.

And here’s the best part. Once your tickets are purchased and you’re ready to begin your Disneyland or Disney California Adventure park visit, you simply scan your Disney eTicket directly from your mobile device right at the park turnstile. No need to print anything or visit the ticket booth!

So get started planning your next Disneyland Resort visit on your mobile device today!


  • I buy some etickets, How can use the fastPass+
    I try to scan the code bar with the disney app but doesn’t work

  • I recommend that you save an image of your e-tickets on your phone. On an iPhone you can do this by briefly pressing the power button and home button simultaneously. This will save the screen image to your photo album. Otherwise if you don’t have internet access you will not be able to view/show your tickets at entrance.

  • It’s cool that technology has come so far you don’t even have to have paper tickets. The whole scanning your phone thing is something I haven’t seen any company other than Disney do.

  • BTW Erin: Does that mean that free Wifi is finally coming to the parks like in WDW?

    Would make sense now more than ever…

  • How do you get to wait times? Disney World has an App that lets you do so, why not Disneyland?

  • the magic bands are definitely a work-in-progress.
    It’s nice for tourists, but for passholders, it’s not beneficial.
    Many passholder benefits are not available with the Magic Bands, so you still have to bring your pass/card. Therefore the magic band is kinda useless, for passholders

  • @Joshuas Why wouldn’t you want the Magic Bands?

  • I don’t think we want the Magic Bands out here.

  • This is nice, but it would be SO much handier to have the Magic Bands and an app like My Disney Experience at DLR! Why is the East Coast SO far advanced from the West Coast? WDW is so much more user friendly with the magic bands!

  • Nice. Its laid out very well and responsive on my iPhone. Having said that, I wish Disneyland had a dedicated app like WDW with all of this AND things like dining reservations, wait times, etc. This is a good start, but please keep working on it! Disneyland is special and deserves all the tech that that Disney has rolled out to WDW.

  • Wait times would be great! Thanks for all that’s in this site.

  • Two questions:

    1. Will this be available with tickets purchased online in conjunction with a convention?
    2. How will FastPass work with this? Does the e-Ticket simply replace the current ticket printout and still have a barcoded ticket issued at first use?

    • Brian – Disney eTicket applies to tickets purchased through the mobile site. Once your Disney eTicket is scanned, you will receive a paper ticket which you can use to obtain Disney FASTPASS.

      UPDATE: I’ve learned that tickets purchased through the desktop version of are also eligible for Disney eTicket! Just open the link from your confirmation email on your mobile device to access them.

  • Will they be adding Current Attraction Wait Times to the mobile website since they are not using the app now?

  • Now this is wonderful news!

    Thank you Erin 🙂

  • Why not just bring Magic Bands out here and make everything easier?

  • Do the eTickets support Passbook on iOS?

    • Stephen – The tickets are only accessible through the mobile web site.

  • Will the electronic ticket work with annual passes? How about fast passes?

    • Sorry, Michael – Disney eTicket is not available for Disneyland Resort Annual Passports. To your second question, once your Disney eTicket is scanned, you will receive a paper ticket which you can use to obtain Disney FASTPASS.
