    how do i buy theme park tickets?

    Welcome to planDisney, Richard!

    How exciting that you're planning a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    It's super easy to purchase tickets. But before you do anything, visit the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar. There are currently capacity limits on the theme parks and you'll want to make sure that the days you want to visit have availability.

    Then, simply visit the Walt Disney World website and go to the tickets page. You can choose between a 1 and a 10-Day ticket. The more days you visit, the less it costs per day. You'll first need to click "Continue" and then select the number of days you'd like to visit. You'll see that you can save nearly 50% per day if you purchase a 10-Day ticket. You'll then select a ticket type. You can choose from the following:

    1 Park Per Day - We have a saying in England: this does "exactly as it says on the tin." In other words, this kind of ticket lets you visit one theme park per day. If you purchase a multiple-day ticket, you can choose a different theme park each day of your visit. 

    Park Hopper Option - This ticket allows you to visit multiple theme parks per day. So let's say you visit Magic Kingdom Park. After 2:00 PM, you can hop to any of the other three theme parks.

    Water Park and Sports option - This is like the 1 Park Per Day Ticket, however, you'll also get a certain number of visits to other Walt Disney World fun based on the length of your ticket. This includes visiting the Disney Water Parks (which are fantastic!). 

    Park Hopper Plus Option - This is basically the Park Hopper Option and the Water Park and Sports Option combined. 

    You'll then choose the day(s) you'd like to visit. Prices vary based on the day you'd like to visit. For example, weekends and holidays are usually more expensive. 

    You can then follow the steps and complete your purchase. Once you purchase your ticket, don't forget to make theme park reservations. You can always change these closer to your trip (subject to availability) if you wish.

    If you'd like to experience more attractions per day, then you should consider purchasing Disney Genie+. You can do this on a day-to-day basis once your trip begins. 

    Finally, don't forget to make dining reservations! You can do so up to 60 days before you trip. There are so many wonderful places to eat at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Richard. If you need any more help planning your trip, you've got a friend in me.
