    I am taking my granddaughter for her 5th birthday, my question is, can I buy the tickets at the park and also do I have to have a reservation to enter the Castle??? also the memory picture can be purchase at the park?

    Hi Brenda! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I can’t think of a better way to celebrate your granddaughter’s fifth birthday than at the Walt Disney World Resort. There is nothing more magical than seeing Disney through the eyes of a child!
    You are able to purchase Theme Park Tickets in advance online and you also can purchase them once you arrive to the Walt Disney World Resort. These tickets can be purchased from any of the Theme Parks or the Concierge desks in the Resort hotels if you are staying on property. I do recommend that you purchase your tickets in advance to save some time! I also recommend that if it is in your budget to stay on resort property. You can take advantage of a Magic Your Way package which offers rooms, tickets, and even dining! You can choose the package that fits your budget and needs best.

    If you would like to dine in Cinderella Castle at Cinderella’s Royal Table reservations are highly recommended. If you just would like to walk through the castle and look at the beautiful mosaics on the walls there is no additional charge for this. Inside of Cinderella Castle is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique which offers Princess Makeovers. I can tell you that my daughter just had her first experience with this and it was a dream come true for her. Reservations are highly recommended for this experience and there is an additional charge.

    Lastly, Memory Maker can be purchased in advance for $149 (this is a savings of $20) or it can also be purchased during and after your trip for $169. If you would like to purchase it after your trip and after you have reviewed your photos, make sure to visit PhotoPass from your home computer. 

    I hope that I have helped to answer your questions. Please come back as often as you need for additional help planning your vacation. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
