    Hi, I would like to book my park tickets online for Dec 25-26. I am not seeing a date option for tickets only when i try to book. When i book and receive the paper tickets, do i just come to the parks on the 25 and 26?

    Hi, Sasha, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The answer to your question is as easy as this - yes! When ordering your tickets online, giving the date you plan to visit a Walt Disney World Resort theme park is only relevant when purchasing a one-day ticket. Those ticket prices vary by season and theme park. Since you are purchasing a two-day ticket, there is no need to give the exact dates you are coming to experience the endless magic! If you would like to have the regular ticket cards instead of using your paper tickets, simply stop by any Guest Relations and they will be happy to help you.

    Sasha, the two days you plan to visit the parks can be quite busy, so I want to encourage you to make your FastPass+ selections as soon as you can. You can make up to three complimentary FastPass+ choices per day. Once those are used, you can then hop on the My Disney Experience mobile app or visit a FastPass+ kiosk to make an additional selection. I assume you are staying off-property, so mark your calendar for the dates of November 25-26, 2016. These are the two days you can begin making those selections as a Guest not staying in a Resort hotel.

    I have some quick tips to share with you to make your holiday visit extra magical!
    ~Come to the parks as early as you can. We tend to arrive at the park entrance 30-45 minutes before it opens. Waits for the attractions are usually much lower the first few hours of the park opening. Given the busy holiday, you will want to make use of those precious few hours!
    ~Make at least one Advance Dining Reservation at a Table-Service dining location each day. When the parks are crowded, it is nice to have a reserved table waiting for you and to have someone else serving you!

    I hope you have a very merry holiday visit, Sasha! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
