    Hello. Just booked a trip for later this year. Do you have to use the tickets the first day or just anytime between the 7 day window? ( tickets valid oct 17-23) could we activate our tickets at DIsney Springs the first day and then the parks other days?

    Hiya Samantha! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Olaf will be so excited when I tell him I found you! Samantha, we are elated to hEAR you are planning on coming home to Walt Disney World Resort. I like to think about all the Mickey shaped treats I'll be eating along the way as I plan my vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    If you have Standalone Theme Park tickets, you can use these tickets anytime or any date between its validity use period. It sounds like you have a 4-day Theme Park ticket, and this ticket will be valid for 7 days. When a Guest purchases a 4-day Theme Park ticket, they have 3 additional days to use these tickets. I am so thankful for this because I like to take breaks in-between Theme Park days. My family and I love our rest days; we spend time at our Walt Disney World Resort hotel and go for a swim, we also like to visit Disney Springs. There is always so much to do!

    If the tickets are a part of a package reservation, it is possible to pick up your package tickets up to 10 days before your check-in date. I recommend that you stop by Guest Relations offices at the Theme Parks and Disney Springs area to pick up your tickets. A Cast Member will be happy to assist you!

    October is such a wonderful time to be coming to Walt Disney World Resort. The yummy fall treats, the gorgeous fall decor, and the spook-tacular special ticketed event, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are just a few reasons I love going during that time and I know you will "fall" in love with it, too! 

    Samantha, I hope you and your family have the most magical vacation! See ya real soon, pal!
