    Hi! This is our first visit to Disney world Orlando and I need information on how the tickets work with the parks. From what I understand we will buy a ticket to Disney World but do we also need to buy a ticket to the individual parks like animal kingdom?

    Welcome to planDisney, Cecelia! I am so excited that you want to visit Walt Disney World Resort for the very first time! I remember my first visit like it was yesterday, and I hope that you find it magical, and wonderful and make the best memories with your family. 3 chEARS to you! 

    Cecelia, Walt Disney World has four theme parks: Disney's Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's EPCOT Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios Park, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. There are also two water parks: Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park (which is temporarily closed for refurbishments). There is also the shopping and dining complex, Disney Springs. If you would like to visit the four theme parks, you will need four tickets for each park. Since it is your very first visit, I suggest spending a full day at each of the theme parks, so that you can maximize your time and focus on each one. Each theme park has its own story and theme, and since you plan on visiting right before the holidays, you will want to stop and enjoy all the gorgeous decor that pops up around that time. If you wish to visit two parks in one day, I suggest adding the Park Hopper option. You will be able to switch to your second park beginning at 2 P.M., and if you wish to return to the first park you visited that morning, you will be able to do that as well. Another important thing to add is that you will also need to make a theme park reservation in order to enter the theme park you want to visit that day. When you are ready to purchase your tickets, you can call a Cast Member at the New Tickets office at (407) 939-7679. Make sure to create a Disney account and download the My Disney Experience app to your phone to access your reservations!

    Cecelia, have the most wonderful visit to Walt Disney World. We are here for you if you have any more questions!
