    Hi , I booked my Disney package for August this is my first time traveling with my kids. I still haven't fully paid it off so I'm wondering until I pay it in full then should I get my tickets or some sort of tickets in the mail? Or should I call?

    Hi Cendy,

    So nice that you're planning your vacation for this coming August. So many new experiences, I'm sure your family will have a blast.

    A Magic Your Way Vacation Package not only includes a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, but also Theme Park Tickets. And you can also add a Disney Dining Plan. In fact, a vacation package is the only way to add dining. This can easily be done online, by speaking directly with a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, or with a travel agent. A package only requires a $200 deposit, and the balance will become due 30 days before your arrival.

    If this is the case, all you need to do is verify that you have tickets for the number of days that you would want to enjoy the Theme Parks. My family likes to take a day off to enjoy the Resort hotel, usually during the middle of our vacation. You should simply call to make these changes.

    Now, one of the benefits of staying on site, is that you can plan ahead and book FastPass+ reservations for up to three of your favorite rides, up to 60 days in advance of your arrival. This will let you skip the lines and able to enjoy more experiences. Non Resort hotel guests only get to do this, 30 days in advance, so you can have first dibs on booking them.

    If, on the other hand, you booked a room-only stay, your balance will be due when you arrive. However, you will need to purchase Theme Park Tickets ahead of time, in order to be able to select FastPass+ reservations ahead of time.

    Happy planning!
