    We are trying to book tickets as part of our trip next Jan, but we only want to buy tickets for 1 days to the magic kingdom. When i try to buy tickets online there are only options for 14 or 7 day passes - can you not buy single tickets?

    Hi Clare, welcome to planDisney!

    As you discovered, cherished Ireland-based Guests can currently purchase 7 or 14-day Magic Tickets via the Walt Disney Travel Company. Single-day theme park tickets can be purchased via as soon as you arrive in the United States. I recommend purchasing your tickets online over a ticket window outside the theme park because you don't want anything standing between you and Cinderella Castle on your park day. Theme park reservations are not needed for date-based tickets after January 9, 2024, so all you'll need to enter Magic Kingdom Park is valid admission and a method of entry (Disney Band, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card).

    Alternatively, a friend or family member in the United States can purchase one-day tickets for you and link them to your My Disney Experience account anytime. For this to work, you'll first need to connect with that individual as Family & Friends in My Disney Experience. Once the tickets are assigned to you, you can reassign wholly unused tickets to anyone on your Family & Friends list.

    To maximize the magic on your Magic Kingdom Park day, I highly recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ service. You can purchase Genie+ anytime after midnight on your park day via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the app's homepage > Tip Board). I recommend purchasing by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. You can book your next Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction as soon as your first one has been redeemed, or at the time listed on your Tip Board banner. Continue booking attractions throughout the day as soon as you are able. Be sure to end your day with a literal bang by watching my absolute favorite nighttime spectacular, Happily Ever After.

    Please return to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.

    Choose magic,
