    Can you buy tickets at the gate or do you have to have your ticket beforehand? Thanks

    Hello Paula! Welcome back to planDisney!

    It looks like you're planning ahead for your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! That is just what I like to hear. When it comes to a Disney Vacation, planning in advance can be a huge advantage, including purchasing tickets before you arrive.

    Currently, both valid theme park tickets and theme park reservations are required to enter all of the four parks at the Walt Disney World Resort. It doesn't matter if you're an Avatar, a true Na'vi, or one of the Sky People, this is a step no one can skip! Theme park tickets and reservations are limited and tend to fill up completely at many times of the year. If you wait to try to purchase tickets at the gate, it is possible that all theme park reservations will be booked for that day and you will be unable to enter the parks. 

    As much as I'd often like to jump on the back of an Ikran and skip the ticket and reservation process, it is the best and only way to ensure that you'll be able to enjoy all of the magic of the theme parks during your visit. So once you've landed on the best dates for your vacation, you'll want to purchase theme park tickets and make the accompanying theme park reservations as soon as possible.

    Paula, if you loved the new movie, Avatar: The Way of Water, you're certainly going to want to add Disney's Animal Kingdom Park to your itinerary! Pandora - The World of Avatar allows you to momentarily escape the world we live in as you explore the magic of nature.  You can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Avatar Flight of Passage where you'll link to your very own Avatar and take a thrilling ride on the back of a Banshee! It's a can't-miss attraction!

    Well, Paula, our time here in the Valley of Moara has come to an end. I hope I've helped answer your question today and that you're able to get your tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort when the time is right for you!
