    i'm trying to buy tickets for the theme parks but it keeps telling me basically I need to be booked at one of the participating resorts how can i get around that

    Hello Tira,

    It's so great to hear you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. What's more fun than hanging out with Mickey and his pals?

    For your theme park tickets, I would suggest starting out by going to the Theme Park Tickets page on the Walt Disney World Resort website. When you visit the page, you'll notice that when you sign in as a Florida resident, you'll be able to view special Florida Resident Ticket offers. The Florida Resident Ticket offers currently feature savings for 3-day and 4-day tickets. You can also purchase Standard Theme Park Tickets available for all Guests.

    When you purchase theme park tickets, you'll be prompted to make a few selections. You'll want to select the number of days you wish to visit the theme parks, select your ticket type, select the first day of your ticket, and then select the number of tickets you want for ages 10+ and ages 3 to 9.

    If you find that it's more convenient, you can also purchase tickets through the My Disney Experience mobile app. On the home screen of the app, simply tap the plus icon in the bottom menu and then tap "Buy Tickets and Passes."

    Another option for you is to contact the Walt Disney World Ticketing team by calling them at (407) 939-7679. 

    Tira, one step you'll want to be sure to take is to make your theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system. You'll find it's helpful to check out the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar before buying your theme park tickets. The Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar will help you see which theme parks have available reservations on the days you might wish to visit.

    It's looking to be a fun summer at the Walt Disney World Resort, Tira. There's so much excitement to experience. Be sure to check out the theme park updates to help you stay in the know for your visit.

    Tira, if the planDisney panel can help you by providing any suggestions for your visit, do just ask us. 

    Enjoy your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
