    Hi, We bought a 8 day vacation to WDW in December, and ended up buying our airfare late. We have to fly in a day early and got a room only night before our vacation package starts. Can we start using our WDW park tickets early still like we use to???

    Hi, Brea! Thank you for bringing this question to us. One extra day of magic, that's awesome! I am so glad to see you were able to take advantage of a great airfare sale. I always try to convince my husband that heading to our Happy Place a day early with cheaper airfare will save us money. Sadly, he rarely falls for it! 

    You can absolutely have your Magic Your Way Package tickets activated a day early for your trip. If you are staying at the same resort, stop by your Concierge desk and the Cast Members there should be able to assist you. Otherwise, you may visit a Guest Relations location at the theme parks or Disney Springs, where they can quickly have you ready to go start your magical vacation.  Please note that if you have included one of the Disney Dining Plans in your package, those entitlements will not be accessible until the package begins.

    I hope you have a magical day, Brea. Please stop by again if you have any further questions as you continue to plan your visit. Hope to see ya real soon!
