    I'm taking a party of 12 to Disneyworld the first week in August 2023. How soon in advance can I purchase the tickets to Magic Kingdom and make the reservations?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    You can actually purchase tickets, and make theme park reservations for August 2023 right now. I just popped onto the website to confirm that pricing for dates in August was available.

    Needless to say, all four parks are available for all days in August 2023. That may not be the case when you get within a month or so of your trip, but you do have some wiggle room there, for now. Regardless of other factors, I always recommend to friends that immediately upon purchasing their theme park tickets, they should make their theme park reservations.

    Why? Well, some parks can get booked up, and you would not want to be blocked out of your preferred plans. Just as importantly, if you were to book those parks now, and your plans for what parks to visit on which dates would change, you can make adjustments. That is, of course, if the parks you want to change to have availability. How can you know if a park you want to go to is free? Just check the Disney Park Pass Availability Calendar!

    If park hopping is in your plans, I find that park hopping is at its most convenient when you are moving between Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT, or the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. These two routes, which are served by the Disney Skyliner and the monorail respectively, are easier because you are dealing with these convenient transportation services. But don't avoid hopping from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to any of the other parks via bus, as it is not as active in the evening hours.

    Please feel free to write me directly if you get any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
