    I just invited my niece visit us for her sweet 16th birthday from TN along with my daughter 16 birthday coming up. I forgot to check for park available. Is there a chance that we can purchase ticket at the gate for Magic Kingdom on 3/25/23. Thank you

    Hi Vivian,

    How exciting to be planning a "double" sweet 16 birthday celebration!  Your niece and daughter are going to remember this occasion for a long time, and I think you should win the Mother-and-Aunt-of-the-Year award! 

    I like how you are planning on celebrating your daughter and niece's joint birthdays at Magic Kingdom!  Magic Kingdom is my favorite theme park and there is nothing like celebrating a birthday in this special place.  Vivian, the spring break season for schools in the United States typically begins in mid-March.  Many spring breakers love visiting Walt Disney World during this time and there is usually a rise in the crowd levels.  Additionally, Magic Kingdom is a very popular theme park so having Theme Park Reservations ahead of time will be key to visiting this park during this time of the year.  Please click on the following link to view the current Theme Park Reservations Availability Calendar.  As you can see, the date you want to visit Magic Kingdom is currently available to make reservations for your group so that is good news!  However, Theme Park Reservations availability may change as the date draws nearer and it is possible that Magic Kingdom and other theme parks may not be available for your desired date.  My best advice is to purchase your Theme Park Tickets and make your Theme Park Reservations as soon as you are able if you want to ensure visiting Magic Kingdom.

    Since you will be celebrating birthdays during your visit, be sure to stop by Guest Relations at Magic Kingdom and pick up complimentary "Celebration Buttons" for your girls to wear.  You will be surprised at how many well wishes they receive throughout the day from both Cast Members and other Guests!  Sometimes, a little bit of extra Pixie Dust has been known to find its way to Guests celebrating special occasions.

    I hope your trip with your daughter and niece is filled with joy and Magical memories.  Please let us know here at planDisney if you have any more questions, we are always here to help you plan your next Magical adventure.

    See Ya Real Soon!
