    Do I need reservations to enter magic kingdom?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Yes, you do need to have a theme park reservation to enter any of the Disney theme parks on your visit to Walt Disney World, even the Magic Kingdom Park.

    But I am here to help! Assuming you have your tickets linked into your My Disney Experience account, it is time to get your Theme Park Reservations using the Disney Park Pass system. To do so, follow these steps.

    1. Start by going to the main Walt Disney World website and hovering over "My Disney Experience" from the top menu, at the far right.
    2. In that drop down menu, select "Disney Park Pass System". From here you can check theme park reservation availability (by ticket type), purchase park admission (if you don't already have tickets) and make a park reservation. Just follow whichever path meets your needs.

    When you go through the steps, just remember to be certain that all your party members are selected before picking your park. You will follow the procedure each time to reserve each park, but it should not take you more than a few minutes to get it all done.

    BONUS TIP #1
    I looked at the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar, and at the time of this answer, all four parks are available for the time of your visit with just one exception on one day! So, you should be able to get your picks, if you do so soon.

    BONUS TIP #2
    You can change your park selections later, if you want to. The park you change to would have to still have availability, but assuming it does you will just cancel the initial park reservation before making your updated choice. Just always be sure to check that the park you are looking to select is still available on that date.

    Write us back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
