Summer is just kicking into gear, and our friends at Get Away Today are still offering amazing savings at the Disneyland Resort. And with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and more, there are so many reasons to go!

Extra Day Free Savings

For those traveling to Disneyland this year, Get Away Today has an offer to ensure you have plenty of time to experience everything on your list. Keep reading to learn about the Extra Day Free savings, good for travel now through December 31, 2019.

Extra Day Free Savings - Details

Whether you choose Park Hopper or 1-Park per Day Disneyland tickets from Get Away Today, you can purchase 5 days for the price of just 4 days! Additionally, you can include the purchase of MaxPass for each ticket when you purchase with Get Away Today. That’s right! Get Away Today now offers MaxPass as an advance purchase so it’s linked to your Disneyland tickets before you even leave for your trip. Since it is an optional service, you are still able to wait until arriving at Disneyland to add MaxPass to select tickets/days of your vacation.

With 5 days to explore Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, you can take your time in the Resort and perhaps even spend an afternoon taking a nap at the hotel pool before returning to the parks in the evening. Having 5 days at Disneyland for the price of 4 days also means you have more churro spending money!

Extra Day Free Savings - How to Enjoy It

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
If you travel to Disneyland after June 23, 2019, then you can visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge using the virtual queue system. With the Disneyland app, or a physical kiosk within the Resort, you can request a “boarding pass” to access the new land of Batuu. Once your time draws near, you will receive a notification, giving you two hours to enter Galaxy’s Edge. Upon entry, you can enjoy the new land for as long as you’d like! Each time you leave, however, you will have to request a new boarding pass in order to gain entry again.

Pixar Pier
Other ways to enjoy your extra day free at Disneyland is to check out all the new experiences in Pixar Pier. Jessie’s Critter Carousel recently opened, taking cowfolk of all ages for a spin. With the release of Toy Story 4, it’s perfect timing to jump on a colorful little critter and take a ride, as long as you leave your lasso at home. Joining Woody and Buzz in Pixar Pier this summer is Bo Peep so you can commemorate your visit with photos and autographs. Also new in Pixar Pier is Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, which will allow riders to experience a wide range of emotions amidst a colorful attraction.

Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party
Our last tip for enjoying the savings of the Extra Day Free special is to travel to the Disneyland Resort during Halloween Time. This year Disney California Adventure Park will host an all-new Halloween party called Oogie Boogie Bash. Beginning September 17 and concluding October 31, 2019, Oogie Boogie Bash will incorporate favorites from the now-retired Mickey’s Halloween Party with new haunted, family-friendly delights. With 5 days for the price of 4 days, you can enjoy this separate ticketed event that is spooktacular for all ages. Tickets can be purchased directly from Disney.
