    Hi, I want to celebrate this coming New Year's Eve in the Magic Kingdom. I wanted to ask how does one go about achieving that? Must one buy separate tickets in advance (like you would for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party)? Thanks so much in advanc

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jesus ~

    My family loves to ring in the New Year at Disney World! I feel like we end the year and begin the new year with a huge dose of pixie dust.

    You will not need to purchase a special ticket to enter the Magic Kingdom on New Year's Eve. You will only need a regular Magic Kingdom admission ticket to enter. You should expect large crowd levels so I would recommend arriving very early, especially if you are staying off property.

    Here are some other tips that I think would help you before and during your trip:

    • Use the Disney Parks Moms Panel - we'll be here to help you with all of your planning questions.
    • Stay at a Disney Resort Hotel and make your hotel reservations as soon as possible to ensure you get what you want. This will also give you access to Extra Magic Hours that are only available to Guests staying at a WDW Resort.
    • If you're staying on property and purchase your tickets in advance, you can take advantage of Disney's complimentary FastPass+ (FP+) service and make your FP+ selections in advance. 
    • Make Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs). These can be made be made up to 180 days prior to your trip. You can make reservations through the link above or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.
    • Select your 3 "must dos" in the parks you're visiting and do those first.
    • Unless you have ADRs, plan to eat lunch and dinner earlier than usual. This will help you avoid some of the crowds.
    • Bring your own water and snacks to avoid waiting in line for them.
    • Remember to relax. Disney takes care of every detail in the parks so take the time to pay attention to them.
    Please feel free to visit with all of your questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
