    So... as a last minute idea (probably not the best idea). We are going to WDW. It's unlikely that our tickets will arrive before 3 weeks before our reservation. I know this isn't good. Any ideas to help the trip or is it not worth it?

    Hello Ashley,

    I love a last-minute trip to Walt Disney World! As much as I love to plan ahead, there's definitely something to be said for spontaneity.

    If you purchase your theme park tickets online while logged in to your My Disney Experience account, you won't have to wait for cards to arrive in the mail. Your tickets will be automatically linked to you and if you are staying in a Disney Resort Hotel, you even have the option to pick up your MagicBands when you check in. If you don't plan to stay in a Disney Resort Hotel, you also have the option of picking your tickets up at Will-Call.

    Either way, once they are linked in your My Disney Experience account, you'll be able to make your FastPass+ selections as soon as 60-days before arrival as a Disney Resort Hotel Guest or 30-days prior for Guests staying off-property.

    If you decide not to enjoy the parks, there are plenty of other entertainment options at Disney Springs and admission is not required!

    Wishing you a magical visit to Walt Disney World, Ashley. Thanks for stopping by!
