    I see that there are going to be new prices for tickets for DISNEY WORLD beginning Oct. 16 with a new online way to purchase. I am going November 6, 2018. Would it be better to purchase the tickets now? We are not staying at a Disney Resort.

    Dear Lisa,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your terrific question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Yes, it is true that we have a new ticket pricing structure that will begin on October 16, and we are excited to be able to offer new options for guests. Regardless of the new pricing, I recommend that you purchase tickets before 30 days before your first day. At the 30 day mark, guests who are not staying on site at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are able to make their FastPass+ selections. You will want to purchase your tickets, link them to your My Disney Experience account, and select FastPass+ choices as soon as you can. That will give you the best selection available.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
