    Hi can I ask is it the same price to buy tickets at the gate as it is online for a one day visit to Magic Kingdom? Thanks

    Hi Lyn!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    For the most part, you will find ticket prices at the gate to be the same as ticket prices available on the Walt Disney World website for the same day. There are some exceptions to that, mainly being special event tickets that are less expensive when purchased in advance. A one-day ticket should be the same price online or at the gate.

    There are a few perks for purchasing in advance, though. One of the biggest advantages is being able to make FastPass+ reservations 30 days in advance (60 days if you're staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels). It also helps expedite park entrance when you don't have to wait in line at the ticket booth upon arrival. Additionally, there is always the possibility that ticket prices will increase between now and your trip. That is unlikely since you're arriving soon, but they are subject to change without notice.

    If you haven't already, I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience app to your smart phone. You can purchase your tickets through the app, but it is also a fully comprehensive tool for planning your day at Magic Kingdom Park!

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your trip.
