    How early does the Ticket and Transportation Center begin selling tickets? Our guests want to "squeeze in" a park day - they will not be able to buy ahead. We want to buy tickets and get to Magic Kingdom for rope drop. Is this possible?

    Hi, Melinda!

    Tell your pals "Hakuna Matata - No worries!"  They will be able to purchase their Magic Kingdom park ticket in plenty of time prior to park opening. Ticket windows generally open up about 1 hour prior to the scheduled park opening, so plan on an early start, get the needed tickets, then get the magic started!

    Since your pals will not be purchasing their park tickets until day-of, they will be unable to select their FastPass+ selections ahead of time. However, they can simply stop by a FastPass+ kiosk to make their choices with a quick scan of their tickets. 

    If you plan to enjoy any table service meals together, make sure to book your Dining Reservations. You might want to look into a fun character buffet like the Crystal Palace with hosts Pooh and his silly pals! This is a fun way to enjoy a magical meal while getting some wonderful photos with Disney pals. 

    Enjoy your day of fun with your guests at the Magic Kingdom!
