    I’m actually looking to stay off the resort but needed to know whether I purchase the tickets ahead of time or when we get there

    Hi Tiffani!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for asking us this great question! One of the most important decisions you will make for your vacation is your theme park tickets, so I'm glad you are thinking about it in advance!

    Guests who are visiting the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks will need both a valid theme park ticket and a theme park reservation. Your theme park reservation will allow you to visit the theme park of your choice on each day of your itinerary. Since reservations for each park are limited and do become unavailable on popular days, I recommend that you purchase your theme park tickets and make your theme park reservations via the Disney Park Pass system as soon as possible for maximum reservation availability. If you wait until your trip to purchase your theme park tickets and make your park reservations, you run the risk of reservations not being available for all of the parks you wish to visit.

    Tiffani, there are so many exciting things headed to Walt Disney World Resort this year that you will be able to enjoy during your vacation! One of the things I'm most excited about is Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, which is scheduled to open this summer in EPCOT. You are going to have such a magical trip exploring new attractions and classic favorites. Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog so you can stay on top of the news and announcements about the magic in store for your vacation.

    Come back to see us if we can help you again as you continue making your plans! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
