    Hi...I am coming to Disneyworld with a friend December 11-14th. We already have a reservation at the Hilton Palace across from Disney Springs. When can I purchase tickets and make reservations?Is it possible to purchase a half day Magic Kingdom 1st day?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Patti! 

    From the seasonal treats to the festive decorations, December is a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort and I hope you find it as delightful as I do. Patti, I'm happy to report that the best time to purchase your theme park tickets is NOW! These can be easily purchased online and linked to your My Disney Experience account so that you can manage your plans. If you haven't yet created a My Disney Experience account, start HERE

    Patti, as the Walt Disney World Resort continues to operate in a state of phased reopening to focus on enhanced health and safety measures, you will also need a complimentary park reservation in addition to your valid ticket to gain admission to the parks. The Disney Park Pass system does limit attendance, so I encourage to make your reservations as soon as possible so that you're able to visit your preferred parks on the dates you desire

    Now, Patti, as you mentioned visiting Magic Kingdom Park for a half day it's important to note that half day tickets are not an option at this point. You would need to purchase a full day ticket and then make a Disney Park Pass reservation for Magic Kingdom Park, regardless of what time you plan to enter. 

    Patti, I hope this information helps as you're looking ahead to December. Since you'll be staying so close to Disney Springs, I hope you're able to carve out some time to enjoy the plethora of dining and shopping options there. If you have any other questions or need recommendations, please come on back to planDisney because like the popular Minnie inspired headbands, we are all EARS.
