    If I book a package that includes 6 night resort, 5 day park hopper tickets and dining, am I able to use my theme park tickets before my resort check in? So, if my reservation starts on the 13th, could I go to a park on the 11th?

    Hi Jennifer,

    A vacation to Walt Disney World is a great way to spend time with the family and my family loves vacationing at this special location.

    If you purchase the Disney Dining Plan, you will receive a length of stay ticket which starts on the day of your resort reservation. As it turns out, you will not be able to use a length of stay ticket prior to checking into your resort.

    If you do not purchase the Disney Dining Plan, you would be able to use your tickets prior to your resort stay. Your ability to select FastPass+ reservations at 60 in advance will start the day you check-in to your resort. Prior to check-in you can select FastPass+ 30 days prior.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
