Where to Purchase Disneyland® Tickets

There are many places to buy Disneyland® tickets, but not all are created equal. First, to get the best prices available, you’ll want to reserve your tickets as far in advance as possible. We recommend purchasing your tickets from an authorized ticket seller like us or from the park directly. Discounts are rarely offered, so beware of any deals that seem too good to be true — they probably are!

Getting Around Disneyland®

Fortunately, Disneyland® and Disney California Adventure® Parks are just a short 5-minute walk from our hotel. You get the convenience of staying in range of all the fun! Once you get to one of the parks, it’s easy to navigate through them both. The parks are highly walkable, but if you find yourself getting tired of walking, or want to roll around in style, then you can check out mobility rentals near Disneyland® located right on-site at Camelot Inn & Suites.

The historic Disneyland Monorail is one option, an elevated rail that makes a 2.5-mile loop through the park. There’s also the narrow-gauge, steam-powered Disneyland® Railroad, which encircles the park and makes stops at popular places including Toontown and Tomorrowland. California Adventure® also has electric trolleys.
