Default Animal Kingdom Moonlight Magic 2019

Well, that was easier this time!

Clicked in about 8:45. Got #196 at 9:00 am, instead of #2,400 like last time. I wonder if demand is lower because there are three nights and late August doesn't work for many families due to school starting or school getting ready to start?

Heart stopped when it said it was re-directing me to site and nothing happened. But it went through a minute or two later.

Got my 4 tickets for August 22. Our two friends may bail, so two tickets might open up as the event gets closer.

Good luck everybody!

Dirk

I clicked in at 8:55am and got #2499 so not sure it's easier. Last time there wasn't a que and I got in right away for Typhoon Lagoon last year.

I can't try till next week. I debated making a one night reservation but decided to save the points. I was lucky to do Magic Kingdom but couldn't get Hollywood Studios or Epcot. I am hoping that with 3 dates that maybe I can get AK for my daughter and I.

On the DISBoards, there are people that got into the queue with more than 7,000 people ahead of them.

Good luck! I guess I just lucked out. People who click in before 9:00 AM are given a number randomly at 9. I don't know if click in right at 9 helps to get a lower spot or not. I just know my stress is over this time.

With three nights, you should get something. I was around that number for Epcot and it took about 45 minutes. Last time, everybody who logged in for resort guests got slots.

I'm registering for a friend also who couldn't do this and my higher number was 4222 (lower 1329). Both logged on before 9. Got my first registration done for one reservation but will be in queue for a while still on the other.

I do like that anybody on before 9 gets a random spot because even though I'd make sure to be the early bird, some people won't take off of work or delay child care to sit in front of the computer like I will. It should be relatively fair.

Wow! That blows my theory. I just lucked out.

Good luck! Epcot definitely had availability for non-resort guests, but I wonder if that's a function of the size of the park?
