UPDATE: We have been advised that Transportation and Ticket Center has regained full power as of 4 p.m. and has resumed normal operations. Word on the ground was that during the worst of it lines for tickets at the Magic Kingdom were around 2 hours. So in reference for the future – turn around and go to Epcot or any of the nearby resorts if you should run into this problem firsthand.

We have been advised by cast members at the the Magic Kingdom that the Transportation and Ticket Center experienced a power outage early this morning, and the building currently has limited power. The building is the gateway to the Magic Kingdom, where guests transfer from the parking lot to the theme park via the ferry boat or monorail system.
The monorails and trams are operational. Guest restrooms are closed. At this time, ticket sales are being done manually, and guests may still purchase a One Day, One Park Ticket. Guests who wish to upgrade their tickets to a multi-day or multi-park ticket may do so at any other theme park. We’ll update this story if we have more details later today. Otherwise, avoid trying to buy or upgrade tickets from the Magic Kingdom today – utilize resorts and other theme parks.
