Getting Disneyland Student Discount Tickets
Are you a student who’s looking to spend some time at the Disneyland Resort? You deserve a magical break for all of your hard studying! You also deserve a discount, since we know those student loans may be piling up. Our discount Disneyland student tickets are sure to have you saying hurray for Park Savers by the time you’ve purchased your tickets!
What discounts are available for 2020?
We have a lot of discounts for students in 2020, including Park Hopper discounts and 1 Park Per Day discounts. As of 2019, Park Hoppers and 1 Park Per Day can now be purchased as tickets that include MaxPass! Of course if you don’t want or need MaxPass, we still have discounted tickets without MaxPass.
|2019 Ticket Pricing||Student Pricing||Gate Pricing|
|2-Day Park Hopper||$276||$280|
|3-Day Park Hopper||$344||$355|
|4-Day Park Hopper||$367||$380|
|5-Day Park Hopper||$372||$395|
|2-Day 1 Park Per Day||$221||$225|
|3-Day 1 Park Per Day||$291||$300|
|4-Day 1 Park Per Day||$316||$325|
|5-Day 1 Park Per Day||$321||$340|
As you can see there are significant savings for students who want to visit Disneyland without having to pay gate pricing. We also have several combination passes that include access to Disneyland and Universal Studios or Knott’s Berry Farm if you’re interested in visiting some different parks.
Another inexpensive option if you’re a local student is the Southern California Resident Passport. The only downside is the block-out dates which for 2019 will be most of summer due to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening at the end of May. Of course there are other Passports available to purchase but they are a bit more expensive.
New to 2019 is a Flex Passport which is a bit cheaper and allows you to choose some days to attend the parks on days that you normally wouldn’t be able to with the So. Cal Resident Passport. Here are the details of this new pass:
- Admission to one or both parks during select days of the year
- Up to 10% off select dining
- Up to 10% off select merchandise in store or online at shopDisney
- Reservation-required dates and blockout dates apply (including holidays and other peak days) and vary by theme park. An advance reservation is required for admission to a park on a reservation-required date. Reservations are subject to availability.
Who can take advantage of the student discounts?
Any student out there can use these discounts, whether you’re in grade school, high school or college. If you’re a student, you deserve to save!
Some of our bigger schools that love to use these discounts include:
USC – University of Southern California – We offer USC Disneyland Student Discounts year round for those attending this southern california college. Trojan’s can use our special link to save BIG on their discount Disneyland Resort tickets.
UCLA – University of California Los Angeles – Students who live in the heart of Los Angeles can take advantage of a short stay-cation and head over to the Disneyland Resort for a few days.
LACC – Los Angeles City College – It’s one of the best city colleges in LA and is just a short drive from Disneyland. Students here can take advantage of special student pricing by using our favorite partner Undercover Tourist.
UC Irvine – University of California Irvine – Located just south of Disneyland it’s about a 20 minute drive from campus to Disneyland. One of the unique ways students here can take advantage of Disneyland tickets is heading to the parks right after their classes. You have 12 days to use all the days on your ticket so it’s not a problem to go one full day and then another full day later in the week.
Taking advantage of time as a local student
If you’re attending any of the colleges or schools in the greater Los Angeles area, you have an advantage over visitors who come from far away, and that’s time. Most visitors to Disneyland have a few days at most and can’t take advantage of the fact that you have 12 days to use all the days on your ticket. But as a local student not only can you save money on your tickets with the Disneyland Student Discount, you can put several days in-between your visits.
Many students will go one full day and then go to classes the next then come back. This is a very useful tactic especially when school is in session.
Visiting Walt Disneyland after a week of stressful classes is a great way to relax!
Use the Disneyland App to get more done
The Disneyland App is one of the best tools to get more done at the parks during your visit as a student. It’s a simple download for both Apple and Android phones and creating an account is easy and fast. Once you have it you can add your discounted student ticket to the app and actually use your phone for entry!
It’s a nice back-up system in case you forgot your ticket at home.
You can also purchase MaxPass through the app if you haven’t already.
Of course if you’re going to use MaxPass you HAVE to have the Disneyland app. It’s how you set-up your Fastpass reservations on the go.
We’ve noticed as we use MaxPass with the app that we can get about 4-5 more attractions done everyday! This is huge when you consider that Disneyland is fairly busy almost all the time.
Also new to the app and MaxPass specifically is getting Entertainment tickets without having to visit kiosks. This means that for attractions like World of Color, Frozen, and Fantasmic! you can get your Fastpasses for these via the Disneyland app now!
Looking to treat yourself to some delicious dining? Use the app to make reservations in advance for your favorite restaurants!
PRO TIP: We love dining at Steakhouse 55 but sometimes it’s completely booked! Not to worry. You can order the full menu from the bar, steaks and all!
