    I’m trying to purchase a reservation to magic kingdom but shows to be closed thanksgiving week? How true is that?

    Hello, Jeovanni! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Oh, bother! I'm so sorry you're having trouble making plans to visit the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort. The holidays are my favorite time to experience a bit of Disney magic, so I know how disappointed you must be. 

    All of the theme parks are open throughout the holiday season, including Thanksgiving week. Since Disney now requires Disney Park Pass reservations for all Guests to enter the parks, some of the busiest days can fill up fast. It looks like that's exactly what's happening for the time you were hoping to visit. Taking a peek at the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar, the week of November 21-26 is shaded in yellow, meaning reservations in at least one park are unavailable each day. I do see that EPCOT has availability every day that week, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park has openings on Thursday and Friday. If you'd like to add the Park Hopper Option to your tickets, you could make a reservation for one of those parks and try to hop to the Magic Kingdom Park after 2 p.m., when park hopping opens for the day. 

    If you're able to postpone your vacation until the beginning of December, there's lots of green on the calendar! That means every theme park still has availability, so you could truly enjoy a jolly Disney holiday at any park you like.

    Jeovanni, I hope this helps you find a little holiday pixie dust to plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I wish you and your family the tidings of the season, and I hope you'll come back and see us again real soon!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
