    Is there a cost difference in buying tickets in advance versus waiting and buying at the park

    Hey there, Erika!

    Theme park tickets for any of the Walt Disney World parks are the same price, whether you purchase them online, at the gate when you arrive, or through the My Disney Experience app on your smartphone. There is a variation in the price of tickets based on the park and the time of year you go, but the purchase price is the same no matter which way you make your purchase.

    I will say, though, I totally vote for pre-purchasing your theme park tickets. If you are a Walt Disney World resort guest, having your passes in hand will allow you to book your FastPass+ attraction selections 60 days prior to your arrival for up to 10 days of your vacation. Even if you are not staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can still make FastPass+ choices 30 days in advance. This gives you quicker access to at least three attractions each day of your visit, and that can save you some serious time to do all the things you want to do.

    Thanks so much for your question, Erika! Have a great time on your upcoming visit.
