    We are planning to come to the Orlando area the first week of February. I know that is a slower time at the parks, but I was wondering if it would be safe to book a ticket a week in advance. We would only be going to Magic Kingdom for one day. Thanks!

    Hey there, Alaina! Welcome to planDisney! It’s exciting to hear that you are planning to visit Walt Disney World Resort in just a few weeks! Before you know it, you’ll be experiencing the magic of The World’s Most Magical Celebration while strolling down Main Street, U.S.A., hopefully with a Mickey Bar in tow!

    To successfully gain access to the Theme Parks, Guests must have a valid Theme Park Ticket and a Disney Park Pass reservation. Park Pass reservations are limited, and some Theme Parks will run out of availability for certain days. On my recent trip in December, at least two of the Theme Parks were out of reservations for most of our stay. So, it can help to purchase your Theme Park Ticket and make a reservation as early as possible. I checked the Theme Park availability calendar, and the entire first week of February is currently showing availability across all four Theme Parks. However, that can change at any time.

    In my experience, Magic Kingdom Park is usually the first to run out of availability. I speculate it’s because everyone is trying to see Cinderella Castle in all of her 50th Anniversary bling! While you’re in the park, be sure to catch Mickey's Celebration Cavalcade, ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and grab lunch at Columbia Harbor House. If you haven’t had your park fix after all that, hang around to catch Disney’s Enchantment to round out your magical day!

    I hope this helps, Alaina! I’m sure you’re going to have a blast!

    To infinity and Beyond,
