    Hello, My family is visiting in early April and only have two days in Orlando. Is there a need to purchase our tickets to Magic Kingdom for each day in advance? If not, can we always just buy them at the entrance to the park without a huge line?

    Hello, Lance!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    You certainly do not need to purchase park tickets on-line.  In my opinion, I have never seen much of a "wait time" when in line to buy tickets.  The Disney folks have many Cast Members working the tickets booths and the lines keep moving at a very steady pace.  Now will you save a couple of minutes by ordering on-line?  Well, yes, but not too much.  Again, I am basing this on my own personal experience and waiting in the ticket lines has never been an issue.  

    Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel.  Please come back and join us again should any new questions or concerns pop-up.  May your vacation be MAGICAL and one to remember for a lifetime.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day!~
