    We want to order our Park Hopper 6 day tickets one month before we arrive. Do they have to be used within a certain amount of time upon receiving them? Are there restrictions on tickets? Thank you.

    Hi Charles,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's great to see that you are planning in advance for your Walt Disney World vacation!

    I think you'll want to consider getting your theme park tickets more than a month before you arrive, and here's why. One important planning perk to keep in mind is the Disney FastPass+ service, a free service that lets you select times to enjoy attractions and entertainment. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before your check-in day. All Guests with theme park tickets can make selections 30 days before they arrive. Taking advantage of the complimentary FastPass+ service can mean less time in the standby lines for attractions. My best suggestion is to purchase your tickets soon enough to make selections for the Disney FastPass+ service.

    Another planning tip to keep in mind is that Walt Disney World now offers date-based theme park tickets. Once you choose your ticket type such as a ticket with Park Hopper Option and choose the number of days for tickets, you'll choose the first day of your ticket using an interactive calendar. Your theme park tickets will be valid for a certain number of days from your start date. For example, your 6-day tickets would be valid for any 6 days within 9 days beginning on your start date.

    Charles, I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions as you plan your Walt Disney World visit, please ask away here at Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're happy to help.

    Enjoy your Disney!

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!
