    I am used to purchasing my tickets at the park every time I visit. With covid, I am very unaware of how things work. Do I need to pre-purchase tickets online vs at the park? I am looking to go Oct 8th-11th

    Hi Christian,

    Getting away to The Happiest Place on Earth this fall sounds like a fantastic idea! With gorgeous seasonal decorations, scrumptious fall-themed snacks, and Halloween touches all around the Resort, you'll have a spooktacular time!

    While tickets can be purchased onsite at a ticket booth, I would not recommend waiting until then, especially when you're traveling in from out of state! During the phased reopening, it's not enough to have a valid ticket to enter the theme parks; Guests must also have theme park reservations to access the magic and fun. It would not be very magical if you traveled all the way to California, then discovered that the theme park you wanted to visit didn't have any availability that day! Instead, I'd recommend checking the availability calendar for your preferred dates and purchasing your tickets online ahead of time. When you purchase directly from Disney, you'll make your theme park reservations during the checkout process, then you can rest assured that your places in the parks will be guaranteed. 

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, Christian, and please feel free to come back and see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your visit. I hope you have a truly magical vacation this fall!
