    How early should I purchase tickets if family vacation is November of 2019?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Neccia!

    I also have a trip to Walt Disney World Resort planned this coming November, and I'm sure it'll be here before we know it! I love the weather at that time of year, as well as the little hints of holiday decorations that are starting to pop up at the theme parks and Resort Hotels. I really think it is the best time of the year to visit! Of course, theme park admission is a really important part of your vacation planning process, and I'm happy to walk you through some of the important dates to need to remember when it comes to purchasing your tickets.

    To take full advantage of the three daily FastPass+ selections that are included with your tickets, I recommend that you have your admission purchased and linked to your My Disney Experience account at least 30 days before your arrival. The earlier you're able to make those selections, the better, and that window opens up 30 days in advance for guests who are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. If you are staying at a Resort Hotel and have a room-only reservation and have not purchased your tickets yet, you should be ready to buy them at least 60 days in advance, because guests staying on-site have the benefit of being able to make their FastPass+ selections 60 before their arrival. Of course, you can purchase tickets any time before your vacation when it's most convenient for you, and those FastPass+ selections can be made all the way up until you're at the theme parks. You can even make them on the same day you intend to use them!

    I hope this answers your question, Neccia, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
