    Lyn Asked

    Hi, we want to come to WDW and have a day or 2 in the parks, 1 park per day. If we buy tickets through Disney do we collect them at the park? Also do we get access to fast pass if were only buying either on the gate or 2 days option?? thank you!! Lyn

    Hi Lyn,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Purchasing tickets is quite easy, especially since we can now use the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    I suggest that you purchase your theme park tickets online at least 60 or 30 days prior to arrival. With a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay and valid theme park tickets, you can make Fast Pass+ selections for rides and attractions 60 days prior to your arrival. Without a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation, I recommend that you buy your tickets at least 30 days in advance because, with valid theme park tickets, you can make your Fast Pass+ selections 30 days in advance. We live by Fast Pass+ now because it saves us so much time in line. Popular rides may run out of Fast Pass+ availability so it is important that you make those selections at the 60 or 30 day mark.

    If you have not created a My Disney Experience Account, do that first, then login when you purchase your theme park tickets. If your tickets do not automatically link to your account, you can manually add them using the "My Reservations and Tickets" link in My Disney Experience. 

    Lyn, I do hope you have considered using one of those tickets to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park to experience Pandora - The World of Avatar! Our favorite ride is now Avatar Flight of Passage.
