    I'm planning a Disney World Trip in May of 2015 with 6 adults and 1 child. I have a lot of questions and one is when should we purchase park tickets for Magic kingdom and is it best to buy them now or wait til closer to our vacation date?

    Hi Danielle,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your questions.  

    I like to buy my Walt Disney World theme park tickets as far in advance of my trip as I can.  If I were you, I would buy them as soon as you can.  I do this for a couple of reasons.  First, if Disney raises the price of theme park admission between now and when you go, you will have already locked in the price at the price you pay now.  As long as you do not start to use the tickets (by visiting a theme park and using them for admission), they will never expire.  I also like having paid for something well in advance of my trip.  This way the trip seems to cost less while you are there!  You have so many people coming that you could even spread this out.  Buy a couple of tickets at a time, pay them off, and then purchase the next batch.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Danielle.  Please do come back with all of your questions - we love helping you to plan your Walt Disney World vacation!
