    My family will be in Disney (not staying on property) from March 30-April 6 and we plan to purchase 7-day passes. We haven't bought the tix yet and DH thinks we can just wait til we get to the park, but I think we're better off purchasing ahead. Suggestion

    Hi Shannon!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  You can wait until you get to Walt Disney World before buying your tickets, but I do suggest getting them earlier if you can, especially if on your first day you plan on being there right at park opening.  That's because otherwise you will have to spend time in line waiting to buy tickets in the first place.  If you will be arriving around mid-day or later then I think you can wait; the lines generally aren't that long and there are a lot of tickets booths available.

    If you want to wait until getting to Florida but not waste time in the morning waiting in a line to buy tickets, then you can buy the tickets the night before at Guest Services in Downtown Disney.  The tickets won't be activated until the following morning when you actually use them at a theme park.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
