    Are you required to stay in a Disney Resort to purchase theme park tickets.

    Hiya Katherine,

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m super excited to welcome you and help you on your planning journey to a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    While staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel has many incredible perks, you do not need to stay at one in order to purchase Theme Park tickets. You can buy your Theme Park tickets for your vacation through the official Walt Disney World website (don’t forget to reserve Disney Park Pass Reservations after you purchase your tickets). While I have you, I do want to take a moment to share some of the perks of staying at a resort hotel, just in case you are interested. When you stay at a resort hotel you get access to early theme park entry, early access to purchase individual Lightning Lane entry for some of the newest rides like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and much more! My favorite perk comes when you book a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package, which is being able to make payments towards your vacation up to 30 days before your planned arrival! This benefit has allowed me to stay at some of my dream resorts while being mindful of my monthly budget. All this to say that if you can stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel, it is definitely worth it!

    Thank you so much for bringing your question to us today, Katherine! I hope I have been helpful, and be sure to come back and see us if there is anything else we can do to help.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
