A couple of things to check: see if the shifter is detented completely into park; sometimes a binding shift lever (cola sticks the mechanism exteremly well).
The next most common issue is a bent key, even just slightly will bind the tumblers in an ignition cylinder.
I have the same problem. the key won't come out and the ignition will not turn back all the way when it happens only lets you turn it forward.
I've had the same problem for 2 years. My friend has a Fusion and it happens to her too. She told me after the car is off to shift to drive, then back to park. 90% of the time the key will come out. The other 10% I leave the key in the car. I have a detachable key chain and I put the automatic door opener on the other 1/2 then lock the door from the outside.
