    I was just wondering if I it matters if I purchase my tickets online before hand for the theme parks or if I could do it when I arrive at my Disney resort? We are their for 9 days nov 1st. Bracelets are on their way :)

    Hi, Rebecca!  It doesn't matter in terms of price or admission, but where it will matter is with your FastPass+ reservations.  If you have tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can book FastPass+ reservations for some of the attractions prior to your arrival.   This will give you shorter wait times and a plan of attack for your days in the park.

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can make those FastPass+ choices up to 60 days prior to your arrival.  That can be a big advantage when it comes to attractions like the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Expedition Everest, or Soarin'.  

    If you don't mind making the FastPass selection when you arrive, there are kiosks in the parks where you can choose your attractions.  That gives you more spontaneity, but perhaps fewer options when it comes to FastPass+ availability.

    Have a wonderful visit!
