The Disneyland Resort has now launched a service which allows Guests with web-enabled devices to purchase and receive tickets through them. At this time, however, the resort is allowing only 1 day tickets to be purchased this way (both single and park hopper options available).
In order to purchase a ticket this way, point your mobile browser to DisneylandMobileTickets.com and fill out the secure order form. Once the order has been processed, you will receive your ticket in the form of a bar code on screen as well as by email. Cast members at the turnstiles will then be able to scan in your ticket bar code and allow admission.
According to the site, each transaction may be for up to a total of fifteen tickets and they must be used prior to December 31, 2013.
Please note that to our knowledge the Disneyland Resort has not yet officially announced this service, so until they do, using it is at your own risk.
UPDATE #1: 6/8/12 – This option has now officially been confirmed by the Disney Parks blog.
Disney Parks has announced that its ticket prices will be increased effective June 12, 2011. At Walt Disney World, a one day base ticket will increase $3 for adults (10+) to $85 while a child’s ticket (3-9) will increase $4 to $79. Both the park hopping and water park fun & more options increase $1 to a flat-rate of $55 per ticket. The no-expiration option will also increase accordingly for applicable Magic Your Way tickets.
Annual passes also increase to $519 for adults and $478 for children and premium annual pass rates rise to $649 for adults and $598 for children.
While individual admission for the water parks appears to be affected along the same lines (up $3 for adults, $1 for children), the annual pass rates reportedly remain stable.
It’s worth noting that even after the price increases, reputable third-party ticket brokers such as Undercover Tourist often sell remaining stock on the lower-priced tickets for some time after the price change takes effect.
The new ticket rates for Walt Disney World are as follows:

Earlier today, WFTV, Channel 9 in Orlando, reported on a raid against an Orange County business under the moniker of Ticket Mania who allegedly operated a front to collect credit card information and, in turn, used that information to purchase and re-sell Orlando area theme park tickets illegally online.
Regretfully for many, WFTV apparently left out several key facts reported by others that resulted in a misrepresentation of the situation and can have serious reprecussions for a company that has provided outstanding service by many reports for many years.
Consider this earlier report on the raid by the Orlando Sentinel which clearly explains the situation in which the alleged party operated a debt consolidation company as a front to steal credit information and then use that stolen information to purchase and re-sell tickets online via craigslist, identifying themselves as ‘Ticket Mania USA.’ The article makes the very clear distinction between this falsified name and the obviously not-so-concidentally similar name of the authorized ticket broker, Ticket Mania. Clearly the alleged criminals were simply trying to leech off of the success of a legitimate company.
Although I am an annual passholder and have always purchased all tickets through Walt Disney World directly, I can see no legitimate reason why Ticket Mania should not continue to have the support of the Disney community based on what has been reported so far.
As expected, ticket prices will increase on Sunday, August 2 at both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. Details are as follows:
Sample prices at Disneyland Resort: Single Day/Single Park tickets will increase by $3 to $72 per Adult and $62 per Child; Premium Annual passes are up $40 to $429; Deluxe Annual Pass is up $20 to $298; Southern California Annual pass is up $20 to $194; and Southern California Select Annual pass is up $10 to $144 (source)
At Walt Disney World, a sample of new prices include: 1 Day Base Ticket will increase $4 to $79 per Adult and $5 to $68 per Child; Magic Your Way (MYW) tickets with 4 days or more will see the smallest percentage in increase; Both the Park Hopping and the Water Parks Fun & More options will increase to a flat rate of $52 (up $2) (source)
Walt Disney World is also instituting a renewal policy for Annual Passholders that could yield up three months extra at no additional charge. When owners of eligible passes renew within 30 days before or after the expiration date, the new pass will be good for a total of fifteen months after the expiration date of the renewed pass. Eligible passes include Annual Pass, Premium Annual Pass, Florida Resident Annual Pass, Florida Resident Premium Annual Pass and Florida Resident Seasonal Pass. The offer explicitly does not apply to After 4 at Epcot Annual Passes, Water Parks Annual Pass and DisneyQuest Annual Pass. Offer subject to change at any time.
