You have to buy your Amtrack ticket either at the kiosk or inside at the ticket window when you get to Oceanside station. You cannot buy the ticket on the train.

The Amtrak Station in Oceanside offers Checked Baggage service on most trains, and will drop them off at either Anaheim or Fullerton (both stations are about the same distance to the Disneyland Resort).
