    We are coming to Orlando on June 23rd (Mysefl, wife and two girls (4&9) When should we buy our park tickets? As I noticed on some of the universal ones they had to be used by end of May 2019.

    Hey there, Bob! So happy to have you visit with. 

    I would suggest having your theme park tickets purchased no later than the middle of April if you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort. This allows you to be able to secure your FastPass+ selections 60 days before your arrival on June 23. 

    If you are staying in an Orlando area hotel, you can wait until about mid-May to purchase your tickets. Theme park guests who are not staying at a Disney resort, can select FastPass+ rides and attractions 30 days before their park visit. 

    You can also wait until the day you plan to visit to purchase tickets at Guest Relations at the entrance of each park. FastPass+ selections can then be made immediately on your My Disney Experience app or at one the FastPass+ kiosks located inside each theme park. 

    Here are the rules regarding the expiration of the theme park tickets.
    1-day tickets expire on the date that you plan to visit the park. If for some reason your plans change and you aren't able to visit on that date, be sure to call 407-566-4985. So if you only have a theme park ticket for June 23, the ticket expires that date. 

    2-day and more tickets have an expiration beginning 4 days or more after selected start date. The more days you purchase, the longer the expiration time is to use. 

    Bob, I hope this helps. If you have more questions, please visit with us again and we'll be more than happy to assist you.
