    Hi, do we have to stay at a Disney world hotel in order to buy tickets?

    Welcome to planDisney, Alyssa!

    Thank you for stopping by with your question about theme park tickets. I am happy to hear that you are planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    You do not have to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel to purchase theme park tickets. I recommend, however, checking Theme Park Reservation Availability before buying tickets and then immediately linking them to your Disney account after your purchase to make Disney Park Pass reservations. At this time, all Guests ages 3 and up are required to have both valid admission and a park reservation for the same park on the same date.

    Alyssa, although you are not required to book a Disney Resort hotel for your visit, I highly recommend considering being our Guest and staying right in the middle of the magic! You will be able to enjoy benefits including complimentary transportation, proximity to the theme parks, and much more! To inquire about Disney vacation packages, please contact Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936.

    I hope this information is helpful! Be sure to check our Panel Extras and come back to visit us if you have additional questions!

    Best magical wishes,
