    If I have booked my trip staying onsite at a Disney resort can we access the parks (we have 6 day hopper tickets) prior to getting our room as long as we check in as soon as we get there? So the 6 days would begin the day of check in.

    Hi Michelle,

    Thank you for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. And it looks like you’ll be enjoying the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting!

    It is my favorite time of the year to visit. We love the decorations throughout the Resort, and the many festivities like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, with Candlelight Processional being our number one must-do.

    Vacation packages are the best way to visit the Resort. Not only they include a stay at a Disney Resort Hotel (and all the great benefits this brings you), but also Theme Park Tickets. And it is the only way to add a Dining Plan, which lets you prepay for your meals. On vacation packages, the Theme Park Tickets will be valid from the moment you Check-In to your Hotel. But you can request them one or two days in advance, by visiting Guest Relations at the entrance of any of the Theme Parks, or Disney Springs. Note that you will only be able to make same-day FastPass+ selections for the early days. 

    One last tip: be sure to take advantage of Online Check-In, which will let you start using your Resort benefits as soon as you arrive. You’ll be able to head straight to the Theme Parks this way. See you real soon!
