Advice- I know that on super busy days Dland (like New Year's Eve) may stop selling tickets at the booths for crowd control. What about if you have ticket vouchers? Any thoughts/experience with this? Thanks!
Just make sure you get to the parks before they stop letting people in the parks. - PrincessDaisy   240.2 #1328 12-23-13 8:13AM Like  Reply
Thank you! I figured that this is all that we needed to do. :) - ChurroChomper  147.8 #2561 12-23-13 8:18AM
Make sure your voucher doesn't have a blackout date on there. Many of them have restrictions. I've seen people get turned away after spending all that time getting to the parks. - DLKenCA   1399.5 #87 12-23-13 9:22AM Like  Reply
they may issue a refund or you can upgrade to an ap (may be possible) or reissued for a later date. no admission is guaranteed even premium ap can be denied park admission if a park is to capacity,but usaully dca is always avaiable it has never reached capacity only dl side.arrive early as possible and get a handstamp -if the park closes for capacity the ones with handstamp are formed on a sepearate line as they will get in first only if they reopen the park - pikarich   2425.5 #41 12-23-13 9:56AM Like  Reply
I also believe if you are already in the park and decided to leave to go to either DCA or DTD then come back they may not even let you back in when at capacity. I've heard that if you have a handstamp, they maybe will let you back in, but I'm not sure. Been a while since I was a local! - disneymommy0910   234.4 #1390 12-23-13 9:59AM Like  Reply

Has anyone seen Disneyland park hopper tickets at Costco yet this year? In the past they have been out by now but haven't heard anything. We live in WA state.
I've been waitng for the oregon costco's to do something like they did last year but so far it's a no go. Last year they included a $50 gift card with a purchase which was pretty cool. - madsdad   1800.8 #65 11-18-13 9:35AM Like(1)  Reply

My mom who is a front end manager in Monterey CA said she was just informed that they would not be selling them.  Not sure if that's just for CA or all Costco in the western region. 😒.

Feeling a little nervous about our LAX to HOJO transfer due to reviews I have now found..didn't find before although I looked :(. I booked a private van through Prime Time Shuttles for our family. Thoughts???
Hi @ChurroChomper!  Each one of those vans are independent, so service varies greatly.  A taxi can cost you around $85-100 each way, so depending on the size of your party, that might be a better option. - djbreakdown   573.2 #293 10-23-13 7:03PM Like  Reply
