    What is the best way to buy Disney tickets? My family and I received Disney gift cards and were wondering if we can used those to buy them? Where should we buy them?

    Hi, Angelica! What a magical gift you received! I actually put Disney Gift Cards at the head of my Christmas wish list every year. My family thankfully understands that they are a gift that will definitely get put to good use! You can use Disney Gift Card at SO many locations, such as online at shopDisney or all across Walt Disney World Resort. I am happy to inform you that yes, you can even use them to purchase your Disney Theme Park Tickets. I used some of my Disney Gift Cards last summer to put towards my Annual Pass renewal. That really makes those cards the gift that keeps on giving!

    It sounds like you received multiple Disney Gift Cards. If you want to complete your Disney Theme Park Ticket purchase online, then you will need to combine all of your cards into one. This can be done right on the Disney Gift Card website. At this time, online ticket orders limit guests to one Disney Gift Card per purchase. In my experience, you will only be able to combine less than $1000 on a single Disney Gift Card. If you do need to use more than one card, then you will need to call for assistance in completing your ticket purchase.

    Angelica, once you do have your Disney Theme Park Tickets purchased and linked to your account, be sure to make your FastPass+ selections! These can be made up to 30 days in advance of any day you plan to visit one of the theme parks. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, then you will be able to make these selections up to 60 days in advance! I do encourage you to make your FastPass+ selections sooner, rather than later, for best availability.

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
