    how to buy park passes through the hotel

    Hi Jenna!

    Welcome to planDisney!  We're delighted you stopped by to be part of our world.  Let's look at the options available for purchasing your theme park tickets!

    Jenna, if you currently have a reservation at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection, you have a few choices.  First, you can purchase your tickets online separate from your hotel reservation.  If you're logged into your My Disney Experience account, these will automatically link to you - no additional steps required.  However, if you'd like to upgrade your room-only reservation to a vacation package, you can do so by calling a friendly Cast Member at Disney Resort Hotel Reservations for assistance or you can upgrade online by booking a new vacation package and canceling your previous reservation.  Please pay close attention to dates and cancellation penalties before doing this - especially if your trip is approaching quickly!  There are several advantages to a vacation package including Magical Extras like a free round of miniature golf and special dining and retail discounts.  You could also choose to add one of the dining plan options to your vacation package.  Whether you prefer Quick-Service or Table-Service dining, there is a plan to suit your needs!  Even though theme park reservations are no longer required for date-based tickets, ticket sales are still subject to availability so I recommend purchasing your tickets ahead of your arrival if possible.

    However, plans sometimes change last minute and you may find yourself needing to purchase tickets after you've arrived at The Most Magical Place on Earth.  Hakuna Matata!  If you're already on-site at Walt Disney World Resort and hoping to buy tickets, you can stop by any theme park or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs to make your purchase in person.  In addition, you can still make those ticket purchases online or through your My Disney Experience Mobile App.  Remember that you must have your valid theme park admission before you can start purchasing Disney Genie+, buying Individual Lightning Lanes, or joining Virtual Queues.  

    Jenna, I hope this helped answer your question about buying theme park tickets.  If you have any other questions, please stop by to see me or my panelist pals here at planDisney again!
