    Anthea from Northern Ireland Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Can day tickets be purchased at the gates for the parks we want to visit? Or do they need to be booked in advance? Can find no information on this online. Won't get use of 7/14 day hopper so don't see need to buy one.

    Anthea, it's my pleasure to welcome you to planDisney today! Let's get to your question. You can buy a one-day ticket to visit a Walt Disney World theme park when in the U.S. Prices are subject to change and will vary depending on the park you choose to visit, the date, and various optional add-ons such as a Park Hopper Option.

    While I can't give you a specific price comparison, the Magic Ticket, available to U.K. residents, includes many additional benefits at a price-per-day point that is usually more favourable to an on-the-day price. It includes Park Hopper, water parks and Memory Maker to name a few.

    I'm a Disney fan, so I genuinely feel that one day at Walt Disney World will not feel like enough! You'll be arriving in the swing of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival - one of my must-dos at Walt Disney World. That said, Anthea, if your preferred choice is to make single-day purchases, I recommend buying tickets in the States online or by calling U.S. Guest Services rather than at the Main Entrance Ticket Booths. It's best to know availability ahead of time, right?  

    Anthea, I hope this information helps. If you need anything else Walt Disney World related, please let me know, Louise.
