    Planning a trip for April 2015. We are planning to stay for a week and buy 4-day park tickets. How soon should we purchase tickets? Can we wait and purchase online the week before or wait and purchase on-site?

    Greetings Jennifer!

    I am so glad you found the Disney Parks Moms Panel and reached out to us with your question. You came to the right place!

    The best reason to purchase theme park tickets in advance is so that you can link them to your My Disney Experience account and select your FastPass+ reservations before even leaving your home. If you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort, you can book these reservations 60 days in advance of your arrival. If you will be staying off property, you can still book them 30 days in advance. This guarantees you will get to visit your favorite attractions with little to no wait!

    I hope you are able to navigate through purchasing the tickets and linking them to your account without any issues. Feel free to let us know if you need any additional help.

    Have a magical trip!
