    We want to take a spur of the moment Disney trip; one park, one day. We are staying off resort. What's your best advice on purchasing tickets?

    Hello, Karyn,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel about Theme Park Tickets.  They can be purchased online prior to your trip, or you can purchase them outside any of the theme parks.  I personally would prefer purchasing them beforehand so that I'd be able to go directly into the park to make the most of your day. Also, you'd be able to make FastPass+ reservations up to 30 days prior to your trip by purchasing your tickets beforehand.  You may also want to visit the independent website MouseSavers.com to look over possible discounts on Theme Park tickets.  While the discount may be minimal, it could still be worthwhile. 

    If you'd like to dine at any Table Service Restaurants while there, you can make Dining Reservations online 180 days prior to your trip. 

    If we can help with any further questions, please let us know.  Wishing you a magical day at Walt Disney World!  -Kara
