    Hi, can we are a party of 8 people staying in Disney's Coronado spring resort end of June and we would like to know if we can purchase park tickets at the resort?

    Hi, Marie-Louise! Yes, you can certainly wait to purchase tickets upon arrival at your Resort hotel, but doing so can limit some of your planning options.  If you are interested in a Disney Dining Plan, you will not be able to purchase it without purchasing Theme Park tickets, too.  The Dining Plans must be added three or more days prior to your arrival.  They cannot be added at check-in.

    The more significant reason to me to go ahead and purchase your tickets in advance is to be able to utilize the FastPass+ option.  Since you have already booked a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to check-in for the entire length of your stay.  This is a huge planning tool you don't want to miss out on getting!  You will be able to reserve access to some of your favorite Walt Disney World experiences before you even leave home.  You will be able to skip the standby queue at the attractions that you selected in advance, and—for the first time ever—FastPass+ service includes select Character Greetings, shows, parades and fireworks.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
