    Hi, I´d like to go to Disney in April and stay at Disney´s Art of Animation or Disney´s all-star movies resort.Can I buy my tickets to Magic Kingdom and make reservations to eat with the princesses, both at the hotel the day I arrive? Thanks

    Hi Mariana. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am glad to know you are planning a Disney vacation for your family. April is a great moment to visit WDW, when Disney Theme Parks tend to be less crowded. Besides, you are considering two of my favorite Disney Resort Hotels, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort. Either one you choose, you will have a terrific experience. 
    If you prefer, you can buy your Magic Kingdom park ticket when you arrive at your hotel or at the park entrance, but if It was me, I wouldn't do that. I highly recommend you get your ticket in advance in order to be able to make your FastPass+ selections. It is a great tool provided by Disney for helping guests to save some time at Disney Parks. 
    Regarding Character Dining Experiences, they are very popular and advanced reservations are strongly recommended. Reservations can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit. As you mention Princesses at Magic Kingdom Park, I believe you are considering Cinderella’s Royal Table for your special meal. This restaurant is very busy all year round, I wouldn't take a risk of trying to make a last minute reservation. It is a wonderful experience; memories that will last forever!
    Don’t hesitate to come back if you have further questions. 
    Have a fantastic day!
