    Can I pay on the gate if so what about the reservation do I do it at the gate too

    Hi Chloe, 

    It's nice to see you planning Disney at planDisney. You're visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during The Most Wonderful Time of the Year during The World's Most Magical Celebration. It also tends to be one of the busiest times of the year so let's discuss your options for securing a park ticket and theme park reservation.

    Cherished UK-based Guests can currently purchase 7 or 14-day tickets from The Walt Disney World Travel Company. I understand this proverbial glass slipper does not fit your needs. It is technically possible to purchase a theme park ticket and make your theme park reservation at a ticket window located outside the entrance to each theme park or at the Transportation and Ticket Center for Magic Kingdom Park, but this is extremely risky as November dates are already filling up for certain parks. My best tip for you is to check the theme park reservation availability calendar as soon as you arrive in the United States. If there's availability for your desired park on your desired day, immediately purchase your ticket online or in the My Disney Experience mobile app ("+" sign at the bottom of the app's home page --> Buy Tickets and Passes). Once your ticket is linked to your My Disney Experience account, immediately book that theme park reservation.

    If theme park reservation availability is not showing for your desired park on your desired date, Chloe, just keep checking. Theme park reservation availability changes in real time as Guests are constantly reimagining their park days. In addition to valid admission and a theme park reservation, kindly note that a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card) is required for theme park entry. 

    Please don't hesitate to reach out with any follow-up questions. 

    Plan magic; planDisney.
