    I will be arriving in Orlando on a Saturday and would like to go to the ticket office that day to purchase tickets. I actually will not be visiting the parks until Monday. Is this possible, and if so what is the best time of day to go without a long wait?

    Hello, dear Mary! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Your trip is so close! It's fantastic that it's just around the corner! Just like Tiana, you're almost there! 

    I think that the best time to purchase tickets directly at the tickets windows at the Walt Disney World Resort is the end of the afternoon. But since you will be able to book three complimentary FastPass+ selections for each Theme Park day as soon as you buy them, I suggest buying your tickets as quickly as possible. 

    Since the prices are the same, I always think it's more practical to purchase tickets online, link them to a My Disney Experience account, schedule my FastPass+ selections, and then enjoy my time at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    You will be able to make your FastPass+ selections through the My Disney Experience app, and it's also a fantastic tool to make dining reservations, for example. 

    I hope that these tips help you make the most of your vacation time, dear Mary! 

    May the magic be with you,
