    How much is admission on the gate for magic kingdom for a day pass

    Welcome to planDisney, Elaine, thanks for swinging by! I see that you are arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort tomorrow, I hope you have an amazing vacation! Let’s get right to your question so you can continue planning your day at the Magic Kingdom.

    If you plan on purchasing a 1-day ticket to the Magic Kingdom at the Transportation and Ticket Center, you should expect to pay just under $200.00 ($195.96) U.S. dollars after tax. This would be for an adult, age 10 and up. These tickets are for a single-day admission to only the Magic Kingdom, unless you decide to purchase the Park Hopper Option (ability to visit multiple theme parks throughout the day), or the Park Hopper Plus Option (same as Park Hopper Option but adds a certain number of visits to a water park or miniature golf). *Prices are subject to change.

    Suppose you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. In that case, I suggest purchasing Disney Genie+ so you can begin making Lightning Lane selections at 7:00 AM for some of the more popular attractions. I always try to get something like Peter Pan’s Flight, Space Mountain, or Jungle Cruise and then purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for TRON Lightcycle / Run and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. No matter what your attraction preferences are, utilizing Genie+ is a great way to see as much as possible in your one-day visit.

    Since you are spending your day at the Magic Kingdom, you will need enough energy to make it through the attractions all day and Happily Ever After to close out your night, and to ensure you have that energy, I feel obligated to share some of my favorite Magic Kingdom dining spots! I am going to be visiting Disney World next week and plan on indulging in all of the following suggestions (so you know I mean it when I say it) ...Sleepy Hollow has a delicious Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken-Waffle-Sandwich that is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. My wife also loves the Funnel Cake with Powdered Sugar. Adventureland has a Spring Roll Snack Cart just before crossing the bridge which is perfect for a quick snack and Aloha Isle where you can enjoy a DOLE Whip for dessert. One of my planDisney panelist friends recently visited the Magic Kingdom and told me that the Golden Oak Outpost in Frontierland, near Tiana’s Bayou Adventure (which I can’t wait to open), currently has beignets with a strawberry dipping sauce on their menu. I am crossing my fingers that they will still be on the menu when I arrive next week, but if you’re in the park tomorrow, you should give them a try!

    I hope this information helps with your Magic Kingdom planning, Elaine! I hope you have an amazing visit to Walt Disney World!
