    Can I book my hotel reservation through the website but purchase my park tickets at a separate time elsewhere?

    Hiya! Welcome to planDisney, Amanda. I’m so glad you’re here!

    Oh boy! How exciting to be planning a visit to Walt Disney World during such a special time. Did you know that you’ll be arriving just in time to enjoy the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration, which ends on March 31st, 2023? Talk about fabulous timing, right? It truly is such a historic time to be in the parks, with extra special sprinklings of EARidescent pixie dust around every corner. So, I just know you will love it! Now, let’s get your vacation booked and get you on your way to join the party!

    Amanda, you can absolutely book a room-only Disney Resort Collection hotel reservation online and purchase tickets at a later date. When you get to the Walt Disney World website, just look for the “Build Your Vacation” bar toward the top of the page. Put in the dates you want to visit and the number of people in your party, and then click on “View Rates.” From there, you will see all available resorts and can make your selection. You’ll then be taken to a page where you can add theme park tickets to your reservation. To proceed without tickets, simply select “No Ticket” and then the green “Continue” button.

    Now, once you have purchased your tickets at a later date, you can still link them to your My Disney Experience account so you can view them together with your resort reservation. To do so, log into your My Disney Experience mobile app, and click on “Tickets and Passes.” From there, click on the blue “+” in the upper right corner, and then “Link Tickets & Passes,” and follow the prompts to get your tickets linked up. Then, you’re all set!

    Amanda, once you are all booked and have started tying up those final details for your trip, you're sure to have a few questions pop up. Just remember, your friends here at planDisney are here to help! So, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have.

    Happy planning!
