    I'm going to Disneyworld for the first time with our entire family in January, 2020 - 6 adults and one 4 year old. When should I buy my tickets?

    Hi there, Susan!

    I can't think of a more magical way to kick off a new decade than with a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with your entire family. And I know it will be extra special for the Mouseketeer in your group! It's also very exciting to hEAR it's your first visit. I can only imagine all the wonderful memories y'all will make on your vacation with Mickey. 

    I'm glad you asked this question because I do have a few tips for you about your theme park ticket purchase. If you are staying on-site at the Walt Disney World Resort, you can add tickets to your room-only reservation at any time, but you'll want to do so prior to 60 days before your vacation begins because that's when your FastPass+ window opens in My Disney Experience (online planning tool). This convenient system allows you to reserve a space in line at three attractions per day (more can be added in the park after the initial three have been used). If you are an off-site Guest, you can make your FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance. This helps you plan out your park days so you'll want to have an idea of which park to visit when you make your selections online. Something else you'll want to think about is a possible ticket price increase. It's hard to know when Disney will make this adjustment, so it's best to lock in current pricing once you've selected your vacation dates. Tickets can be purchased online through your My Disney Experience account or the My Disney Disney Experience mobile app or by calling (407) 939-7679. I'd explore all the ticket options before you make your purchase as one size does not fit all when it comes to enjoying the Disney Parks. 

    Susan, please let us know if you have any additional questions about your first visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth. We are hEAR to help in any way we can!
