Fly During Non-Peak Weekdays
Other than taking advantage of the off-peak season, flying on certain days of the week can be another way to capitalize on flight deals. Compared to other days of the week, it’s often cheaper to fly mid-week, specifically on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and sometimes Saturdays as well.
Avoid Last-Minute Trips
The stress of trying to coordinate a last-minute family trip to Disneyland alone is enough to overwhelm just about anyone. When you throw in how much extra you’ll pay for booking your flights last minute, forget about it…
Aside from keeping you from pulling your hair out, planning your trip ahead of time is almost guaranteed to result in you paying less for your flights.
Take Advantage of Layovers
This might only be for more adventurous families, but it is possible to hit up Disneyland and experience its main attractions during a layover.
If you’re able to plan your flight to somewhere else to include a full-day (or multi-day) layover in one of the three airports close to Disneyland (the farthest being less than an hour away), you could theoretically drop your bags off at the airport, zip over to Disneyland, take in the sights and attractions, zip back to the airport, and continue on the rest of your journey.
As a cherry on top, long layovers also tend to result in cheaper flight tickets.
