    Ema from ON Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We are planning to visit Magic Kingdom on Saturday, March 30th. - can we buy the tickets the same day at the gate or are there risks the park could be at full capacity? - can we dine at Crystal Garden without having a park ticket?

    Royal greetings, Ema!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're so glad you've dropped by with a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! Your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just a couple of short weeks away. How exciting! I'd be happy to help you plan an enchanting escape for your whole travel party.

    Ema, soon, your group will be walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. towards Cinderella Castle. I'm thrilled to hear you're hoping to spend a day at Magic Kingdom Park! I understand you're hoping to purchase single-day theme park tickets once you arrive on-site, and I'm happy to inform you that Guests may purchase tickets at the theme park main entrances, pending availability. Ema, unfortunately, a risk of waiting to purchase tickets on a last-minute basis is the possibility of a theme park reaching capacity. At the time of writing, Magic Kingdom Park still has theme park reservations remaining for the date you plan to visit. If you'll be arriving in the U.S. soon, I encourage you to purchase theme park tickets on the Walt Disney World Resort website as soon as possible - before heading to the theme parks, if you can. Once in the U.S., you could also purchase your tickets using the My Disney Experience mobile app or by calling the New Tickets phone line published on the U.S.-based Walt Disney World Resort website!

    You've mentioned one of my favorite Character Dining experiences at Magic Kingdom Park, Ema. The Crystal Palace is nestled right on the end of Main Street, U.S.A. with gorgeous views overlooking Cinderella Castle. Here, Guests can delight in a bountiful buffet in the company of cuddly Hundred-Acre Wood pals! My son and I recently enjoyed a wonderfully memorable breakfast reservation at this lovely Table-Service dining location and we can't wait to return for more Churro Mickey Waffles. Ema, since The Crystal Palace is located inside Magic Kingdom Park, Guests must have valid theme park admission to partake in this dining experience. If you prefer a Character Dining experience located outside the theme parks, consider a breakfast reservation at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera or 'Ohana!

    Ema, I hope you've found this information helpful and wish you the very best with your Character Dining endeavor. Here's to hoping your day at the Walt Disney World Resort is filled with magical memories! If you have any additional planning questions, you're always welcome to revisit us here at planDisney. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Warm wishes,
