    Is there a message alert system to download for when park tickets go on sale?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Piper!

    What a great question!

    Planning a trip to Walt Disney World can be so much fun, and it's great to be aware of when certain opportunities open up. I don't know of a message alert system, but I often set reminders for myself when I know the dates for booking special experiences will open.

    For example, when my family has a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay booked, I set a reminder for when our Advanced Dining Reservation window opens for that trip. Because we are staying at a select Walt Disney World Resort hotel, we get to make our Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days prior to arrival--for the length of our stay. That gives us a bit of an edge when trying to book the most popular locations and times, such as Le Cellier Steakhouse, Chef Mickey's, and California Grill.

    Similarly, I set myself a reminder when our FastPass+ window opens, ensuring that we can arrange our plans for the length of our stay when we are at the 60 day prior to arrival mark. (Of course, Guests who are not staying on property can make these plans 30 days prior to arrival. Also quite magical!)

    Regarding Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets, Guests can purchase them now for dates starting with July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. Typically, as days advance, the ability to purchase tickets to multiple opportunities--including theme park tickets--extend later as well. 

    As you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, please send us more questions, Piper. We love to help!
