    We are staying off property. When we purchase park tickets will the cards be mailed to us or do we need to get the cards when we arrive on Disney property? Thank You!

    Hi, Rebecca and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Fall at the Walt Disney World Resort is one of my favorite times to visit! It was the time of year that my family first visited as a "party of four" so it always takes me back to when my children were little, and being able to experience the Disney magic through their eyes. There's nothing quite like it especially at Magic Kingdom! I just love all the Halloween and fall decor that makes this season a WonderFALL time to enjoy a vacation to the most magical place on earth!

    Since you are staying off-site, you'll receive plastic tickets in the mail shortly after you purchase them. I've bought just theme park tickets many times, and I remember them arriving within a week or two of my online purchase. These tickets are nontransferable so they must be used by the same person each day, so I always use a permanent marker to label each one with the corresponding family members' name. This is also important since it will be used for your FastPass+ reservations. Speaking of that, you'll want to make sure you link your tickets to My Disney Experience and download the My Disney Experience app to your mobile device. You can create an account easily on the Walt Disney World website if you haven't done so already. I recommend you purchase your tickets prior to 30 days before you first day's visit so you can make your FastPass+ selections ahead of time. As an off-site Guest, you can log in to My Disney Experience at the 30-day mark at 7:00 a.m. to plan three experiences that allows you to bypass the standby lines. You will need to log in 30 days prior to each day you plan to be in the parks. 

    Thank you for stopping by with this great question. If you think of anything else, please let us know!
