Best place to buy Disneyland tickets

Just wondering.

Am I better off purchasing my tickets online from Disneyland? Or perhaps any other site that offers the tickets for the same price?

Does anyone know if there's any special incentive to buy the tickets in one place as opposed to the other? Or does it all just come down to price?

The only reason I ask is because I was originally going to purchase my tickets through disneyland.com and then I found the same deal on getawaytoday but it seemed to go into more detail (2 EE days whereas the Disney site didn't mention anything about it at all).

Actually, the Disneyland site does say only one EE:

• Park Hopper® Bonus tickets include one Magic Morning admission for early entry into a designated theme park. A Magic Morning early entry admission allows access to a designated Disneyland® Resort theme park before the park opens to the general public. While not available daily, the feature will be available multiple times per week.

and the tickets that I want would total $368.

However, the getawaytoday page does say that you get two EE's but it costs $378 (that includes $10 handling and what not)

So really, which would everyone else choose??

I will get my tickets through Disney for two reasons. One...they don't charge shipping or handling, and two...the tickets from Getaway are a voucher that you have to take to the ticket window to redeem. We stood in line to redeem our vouchers for 25 minutes once. I'd rather spend 25 minutes in the park.

As far as the early entry goes...for us, one early entry day is enough. It allows you entry into Fantasyland is all. We used our early entry day this last time to get on Nemo. For that, it was great. Other than that, we don't spend a lot of time in Fantasyland, so an extra early entry day would be no big deal. If you have little ones, and spend a lot of time in Fantasyland, then perhaps an extra early entry would be nice.

Hi. I have bought my tickets from the Disneyland site and they charge USD $20 for airmail postage to a street address, not P.O. Box, and it took about 1 week from oredering to arrival. I thought it was worth it as if it got lost in the mail I might have a better chance at recovery if something went amiss.

The EE days are, I thought, for 1 day but if you are staying at a Disneyland hotel you may get more.

On the Disney site, you also have the option of choosing eticket for your delivery at no charge. You print off your tickets at home.
