    Where is the best place to purchase park tickets? Is there a benefit to booking them through the resort?

    Hi there, Rachel!

    I'm so glad you found the Disney Parks Moms Panel and sent us your question. I'm happy to help you out!

    There are lots of different places to buy Walt Disney World Resort park tickets and a quick internet search will help you find those places. However, there are a few reasons why I would recommend purchasing them directly through the Walt Disney World website or by calling 407-WDISNEY (407-934-7639). For starters, if you already have a room reservation at a Disney resort, you can upgrade to a Magic Your Way vacation package by adding park tickets and/or a dining plan to your existing reservation. These packages are a great way to save some money by combining these things together. Also, sometimes there are special offers, like the current offer, which includes an extra ticket day for FREE when you add a minimum 4-day park ticket to your reservation. Lastly, the biggest benefit of purchasing directly is that your park tickets can automatically be linked to your My Disney Experience account, and you can begin booking your FastPass+ reservations immediately if you're within 60 days of arrival. So, there's no need to wait for those tickets to arrive by mail to begin booking your favorite attractions, and you won't have to waste precious time waiting in line at Guest Relations to pick up tickets on your first day!

    I sure hope this helps you get your tickets purchased so you will be all set for your upcoming vacation. I hope your visit is full of magic and pixie dust! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
