Book the bus to TDP in advance?

We will come from El Calafate on Dec. 15 by bus, and plan to start W trekking on Dec. 16.

Will the 7am bus tickets be sold out the day before? Do we need to book the bus tickets to the Torres Del Paine park in advance from home? If yes, how can we do that?

You won't be able to book the bus in advance. If you are spending the previous night in Puerto Natales you could ask your lodging to book it for you. There are private transfers directly to the park from El Calafate which are obviously more expensive but, if you add transport to PN plus a night's lodging it may be worth it.

I would request your lodging in Puerto Natales to book the bus to TDP for you and pay them upon your arrival.

Our B&B (Keoken) did this for us and the bus (Buses Gomez) picked us up at the hotel at 7:00 ish.

Make sure you are booking your return as well. If you are taking the ferry in TDP at the start or end of your trek you will need cash - 12,000 pesos or USD equivalent. (Note: In Chile they will not take US Dollars with even the slightest imperfection - I cam back with several bills that would not be accepted). Also, cash to pay your park entry.
