    Hello, I am planning on going to Magic kingdom on Christmas Day and my question is do I need to buy an extra ticket for any specific celebration for that day or just the general admission is okay?

    Hello there, Thalia!

    You are going to have a holly jolly time visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays. There’s nothing quite like walking down the middle of Mainstreet, U.S.A., with all of the holiday decor and cheerful music. It is sure to put a smile on your face. 

    Thalia, I looked up the Hours & Events Calendar for Magic Kingdom Park, and unfortunately, I can only see hours and event details through the middle of October 2023. I anticipate that we’ll see the Hours & Events Calendar details for December 2023 sometime in October 2023, so you’ll need to have a bit of faith, trust, and pixie dust in the meantime. 

    However, I have some jolly good news for you. I looked at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2023 Event Dates, and there currently isn’t a party planned for December 25, 2023. This is good news for you since this means you don’t need to purchase a Special Event Ticket to visit Magic Kingdom Park on Christmas Day. I recommend purchasing a Standard Theme Park Ticket for the day you plan on visiting. 

    Once you purchase your ticket, I recommend making a theme park reservation as soon as they become available. Christmas Day is a very popular day to visit Magic Kingdom Park, and theme park reservations are subject to availability. Besides making a reservation, I also recommend showing up to the theme park an hour before the park opens since you’ll often find the lowest attraction wait times early in the morning. 

    This Christmas is orna-meant to be the best one yet when you’re visiting Magic Kingdom Park. Feel free to reach back out if you are looking for any other tips. 

    May the magic be with you!
