    When my daughter was an intern as WDW I seem to remember there was a discount on tickets if you arrived in the early evening? We will not flying in till 4pm and wouldn't get to a park probably til 6:30pm, our 1st night. Is this still available?

    Hi Lisa,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    It's wonderful to see that you are considering making a theme park ticket purchase! Currently, there are standard tickets and tickets with the Water Park and Sports Option or tickets with the Park Hopper® Option available. The last time I was able to use a ticket with a later admission time was when I was with a group and we had access to special tickets.

    Given the time of your arrival, you could just relax at the resort hotel pool and grab dinner. We typically arrive in the morning or early afternoon and head to the parks as soon as we can. But with your later arrival, I am not sure you would be able to do much in the parks, especially given the park hours for that day. 

    In looking at your dates, I hope that you have been busy making other plans. If you have not done so already, make Disney Park Pass system reservations. All Guests need park pass reservations to enter a theme park. If you are using tickets with the Park Hopper® Option, you currently do not need to make a park pass reservation for the second park.

    I would also hesitate to purchase a theme park ticket for your arrival day because your flight could be delayed. As you continue to plan, check dining reservation availability to see which locations might have availability for your arrival date. Dining at your resort hotel might be a great option, especially if you decide to do some pool time right after you arrive.

    Lisa, I do hope you make that ticket decision soon and then make park pass reservations! Availability can be limited. so be sure to check the theme park reservation availability calendar first! I also noticed that you will be visiting in time to possibly attend the Disney After Hours Boo Bash, depending on the entire length of your stay. Check the event dates and pricing and book those tickets if you decide to attend!

    Magic and memories,
