    How far in advance can one buy magic your way 5 day tickets? Also, if vacation is April 17, 2011 to April 24, 2011, what is the latest date to purchase the 5 day tickets to pick up at arrival? Finally, where can one pick up the tickets? Thanks, Sonja

    Hi Sonja,

    You can purchase your tickets at anytime prior to your trip to the Walt Disney World Resorts. They do not become active until you swipe them through the first turnstile. Once this happens, the clock starts ticking to use them unless you have a no expiration policy on your tickets. You will have 14 days after your first swipe to use them.

    I would purchase those tickets no later than a week prior to your arrival for pick up at the guest services window at any of the parks. However, as long as you order before midnight, they will be ready the next day. This is an easy way to not forget your tickets at home. You will need photo id with you to pick up your tickets. 

    If you have any more questions about tickets, here is a great link.

    Have a magical vacation!
