5. Purchase your tickets (if you didn’t book a Disney vacation package)
If you booked a vacation package through a travel agent or through Disney directly, your theme park tickets were more than likely a part of that package, but if you aren’t staying on Disney property, you’ll still need to purchase tickets. Yes, you can purchase your tickets once you get to the parks, but you may have to wait in long lines to do so. It saves time and frustration to have them before you get to the parks. Buying tickets in advance also means you can link them to your MagicBands before you get to Disney so that once you’re there, there’s no waiting for the fun to begin!
