Animal Kingdom Tickets

Going to Disney next week (not staying on property) ... Is it best to buy tickets in advance or just at the gate of Animal Kingdom?

If you´re only staying for 1 or 2 days you will have to buy tickets at the gate.

if you are there a little longer you can get slight discounts at


or undercovertourist.com

only a little discount but hey, it´s a little bit at least!

Agree; if you are only going to just Animal Kingdom and no other Disney theme parks, simply buy your ticket at the ticket booths outside the gate of the park when you arrive. Go early for a shorter ticket que line.

Agreed. If you're just looking at a 1 day ticket, buying at the gate is the best option.

Any chance AK will sell out that day or close the gates to more visitors?

If you definitely want to do AK that day, make sure you get there at opening so you will get in.

If you belong to AAA, they also have discounted tickets, but it does start for the 3 day tickets.
