    How do I purchase park tickets


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I always say the easiest way is the best way! Here are the simple steps to follow, so you are ready to start the best part of any Walt Disney World vacation, the planning! This will look like a lot of steps, but I walk you through each small decision you have to make, just so you feel comfortable with knowing you have exactly what you want.

    Step 1: Go to the Walt Disney World website to purchase your tickets.
    Step 2: At that website you want to start by selecting your ticket type. My guess is that you are going to go straight to the "Theme Park Tickets" option, as you want the "Standard Theme Park Ticket". 
    Step 3: You have to make a few decisions now. The website will walk you through these, but they include

    • Pick the number of park days that you want to visit. This may be different than the total number of days that you want to stay at Walt Disney World, or in the Orlando area, but that is OK. Just know how many days you want in the parks and pick that number from your choices.
    • Choose any ticket options you may want. The Standard 1 Park Per Day ticket should be fine, but you can add the Park Hopper Option, which lets you try more than one park per day.
    • Pick your first park day from the calendar.
    • Select the number of tickets you need for adults (ages 10+) and children (ages 3-9).
    • Add any customizations you may want, like the Memory Maker package.

    Step 4: Check out! All you need to do is pay, and you are done! 

    BONUS TIP #1
    If you were looking to buy tickets as part of a vacation package staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you still make all the same decisions, but you will want to start the process from the resort page of where you want to stay. Pick your preferred resort and room type, and take it from there!

    BONUS TIP #2
    Now that you have your tickets linked, it is time to get your Theme Park Reservations, using the Disney Park Pass system.  If you want to change parks after making your initial selections, you can quickly check what parks are available on specific dates by visiting the Theme Park Reservation Availability page.

    BONUS TIP #3
    Don't worry if your number of days in Orlando does not match up with the number of park days that you want to purchase. The more theme park ticket days that you purchase, the longer the range of time you have to redeem them. The range grows from a 4-day window to redeem a 2-day theme park ticket package, to a 2 week window to redeem the 10 days of a theme park ticket package.

    Write us back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
