    Hi Megan!

    The Walt Disney World Resort wants you to have a magical vacation, so they will do everything they can to make that happen, even if you aren't staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel!  Luckily, being able to purchase tickets when you arrive at the parks at the Ticketing Windows just outside the gates are one of the ways that they make everything convenient for you!

    Yes, you can purchase single day tickets for any park outside of the entrance to that park.  If you would like to visit two or more parks that day, you can even add the Park Hopper option to that one ticket while you are at the Ticketing Window!  You can purchase any type of tickets for any park at any Ticketing Window.

    For example, if you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park to purchase tickets for that day, and you know that you would like to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom the next day, you can purchase a two-day ticket, or you can purchase separate single-day tickets for each park, but you can do that all at the same time.

    If you know which parks you would like to visit and which days you would like to visit those parks, you can go ahead and purchase your tickets online to be able to take advantage of FastPass+ early, which is a service that is available for everyone with valid park admission!  You can purchase tickets online and use FastPass+ even if you are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  Remember, it's fine to not have specific plans, because you can always buy a ticket the day of your visit at the Ticketing Window at the theme park entrance!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
