    I’m looking at going to Magic Kingdom end of May. Is it better for me to buy tickets online or at the gate? Is taking Uber better than driving to park?

    Hi Roberto!

    Your adventure is just a couple of weeks away! I hope that you are starting to get excited about your upcoming trip! 

    Magic Kingdom Park is my favorite of all of the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks. There is something so nostalgic about visiting and there is so much to experience. My family really loves TRON Lightcycle / Run, the newest attraction at Magic Kingdom. If you haven’t gotten the chance to experience this yet, be sure to check out the Virtual Queue option in advance so you can experience this attraction yourself!

    Purchasing your Theme Park Tickets online before your journey to the Magic Kingdom not only ensures a smoother entrance but also adds a touch of anticipation to your magical adventure. With the park's popularity, especially as Memorial Day weekend draws near, there may be an increase in demand for tickets. By securing your tickets early, you are guaranteed entry, sparing yourself any last-minute worries about availability.

    Now, onto transportation! While driving to the park is an option, I prefer to use Uber or Lyft for transportation to this Theme Park. Your Uber or Lyft will transport you to the Ticket and Transportation Center, where you're greeted with the option of gliding across the water on a Ferryboat or soaring through the sky aboard the Disney Monorail Transportation. You will then be delivered right to Magic Kingdom Park where your magical adventures will begin. By opting for rideshare, you bypass the very large Magic Kingdom parking lot.

    Here's to an amazing journey to the Magic Kingdom, where every moment is brimming with adventure and magical memories!
