    How early do you typically purchase your tickets? We have booked our rental house off property (17 people) and the group will be purchasing between 2, 3, and 4 day base tickets. Thanks!!!!!

    Hi Kelly,

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort vacation with 16 of your loved ones is going to be an AMAZING experience! I'm SO excited for you!

    You'll want to have your tickets purchased in time to make your FastPass+ selections, so I'd recommend purchasing your tickets around two to three months before your trip. However, there is always a chance that ticket prices could go up (there have been price increases during February the last several years), so you may want to consider going ahead and purchasing your tickets now.

    Once your tickets are purchased and linked to your account, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time 30 days in advance. Don't forget that while you are able to make three selections per day ahead of time, once you've enjoyed those three selections, you are able to use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to add additional selections, one at a time, until the parks close that day.

    Since you're traveling with a large group, I would encourage you to find a few attractions per day that your whole group would love to experience together, but also feel free to split into smaller groups so that everyone can enjoy their favorite attractions. Come back together to share your favorite memories of your day over a special family style or buffet dinner, or perhaps a memorable dinner with some beloved Characters

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kelly, and have a truly magical vacation!
