    Can you purchase half day tickets. ? First travel day we wouldn’t get there Tell noon -

    Hey there Mary, and welcome to planDisney! 

    Bees'll buzz, kids'll blow dandelion fuzz, and you'll be going to Walt Disney World, in summer! As Olaf is enjoying a drink in his hand and getting gorgeously tan, you'll be exploring the Most Magical Place on Earth. June is a fantastic time to visit the theme parks; you can feel the excitement as families celebrate the completion of another school year. My husband and I are teachers, and we love to fly off to Never Land as soon as that last bell rings. 

    Mary, at this time, you cannot purchase Walt Disney World theme park tickets in half-day increments. Depending on how many days worth of admission you plan to purchase, the cost of adding a day may not be prohibitive. The more days you plan to play, the less you pay per day! The jump in price from a two-day ticket to a three-day ticket is more significant than going from a five-day to a six-day ticket. I checked the ticket calendar for your trip dates, and it looks like adding one more day to a five-day base ticket, for example, would only increase the total cost of each ticket by $17. Keep in mind that prices are subject to change, so I recommend calculating the cost of different ticket options yourself on the Walt Disney World website. Find the Parks & Tickets drop-down menu in the top right corner of the main page, then click on Theme Park Tickets. 

    Should you decide to skip the theme parks on your arrival day, you'll still find plenty to keep busy during the afternoon and evening. My family almost always flies into Orlando International Airport midday, and we prefer to take our time settling into our accommodations and exploring our new home. We enjoy the pools at our resort hotel, pick up a few refillable mugs, and prepare for the action-packed days ahead by getting a good night's sleep. Sometimes we make an Advanced Dining Reservation at a nearby resort or Disney Springs. On a recent stay at Disney's Riviera Resort, my children just wanted to ride the Disney Skyliner, so that's exactly what we did! From miniature golf to shopping to dining, there's always an opportunity for fun before you set foot in the theme parks. 

    I hope this gives you some ideas for how to spend your arrival afternoon, Mary. As you continue to count down the days until your vacation, be sure to follow planDisney on social media for real-time advice and quick tips. If any other questions come up, stop by and see us again; we love to help!
