    Can I buy theme park tickets 2 weeks prior? Not staying on site. It was a last minute thing deciding to go to Disney world. I have never been to Disney world and I want to bring my daughter for her 5th birthday.

    Hi Katie!

    A warm welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your excellent question about Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets.

    I am so happy to hear you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort for your daughter’s 5th birthday. There is no place more magical for a birthday celebration. You definitely win the “awesome mom” award!

    Katie, planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is easy and convenient. Yes, you can purchase your theme park tickets 2 weeks in advance of your vacation. In fact, I suggest you do so! By linking a theme park ticket to your My Disney Experience account, you will unlock the ability to start making FastPass+ selections.

    Guests with a valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket linked to their account can start making FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of their vacation. FastPass+ is included with your Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket!

    Katie, if you want to make your princess-in-training’s birthday extra special, I suggest you take a look at the cakes at Walt Disney World Resort page. Imagine her face when she sees a cake made just for her!

    If you have any additional questions, or want more ideas about how to make her birthday more special, please visit the Moms Panel again. We are always here to help you!
