    Will be visiting Animal Kingdom tomorrow. We are pass holders and have made reservations already. A friend without a pass may want to join us. Is it possible to purchase a ticker the day of the visit at the front gate of animal kingdom?

    Hello Randolph, 

    Welcome to planDisney! How exciting to hear that you will be visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park tomorrow. That sounds like a practically perfect way to start the weekend.

    As of January 9th, 2024, theme park reservations are no longer required for date-based theme park tickets. Hooray! With this news, buying a ticket at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park the day of your visit is easy-peasy should your friend decide they want to join you for the day. 

    While you're visiting, keep an eye out for the African elephant, Nadirah, and her sweet newborn, Corra! Corra is the first African elephant born at Disney's Animal Kingdom in seven years, but what makes this story really special is that Nadirah was born there as well back in 2005. So sweet!

    Have a wonderful visit tomorrow, Randolph! Please enjoy a Pongu Lumpia for me from Pongu Pongu Lounge in Pandora - The World of Avatar! They're so good! I hope the weather cooperates for you and you see and do everything you have planned.

    Magical Wishes,

Hi-ya, Pals! I'm Lauren, a wife and mother of three who's enjoyed many special occasions at Walt Disney World Resort with my family and friends.

I now have pre-teens who check wait times in the My Disney Experience App just for fun, so I look for any excuse to return "home" often and would love to help you plan a little extra Pixie Dust for your next magical adventure.
