    My brother was going to buy the 4 day hopper tickets for myself and my daughter for our trip in November. We arrive the 5, and he won't be down until the 6 or 7 due to his work schedule. Is there a way for us to use our tickets prior to his arrival?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Katlyn! 

    A magical trip with family to the Walt Disney World Resort is my favorite kind! I’m thrilled to learn you are getting ready for some magic, memories, and fun with your brother and princess soon. I bet you are getting super excited. I hope the countdown passes by quickly so you are enjoying your magical visit soon! 

    Katlyn, there are several options for you to be able to use the tickets your brother purchased for you. If you both have My Disney Experience accounts, and you are connected, he can easily assign the tickets to you so you can start planning for your visit and use them upon arrival, especially if you have MagicBands. 

    The tickets can also be picked up at will call, but you will need the credit card used to pay for them and a form of identification that matches the name on the credit card. 

    If the tickets were purchased as a part of a Magic Your Way vacation package, there might be additional restrictions on the dates they can be activated and used. My friend and fellow Disney Parks Moms Panelist Lindsey P. recently answered a question about it that has really good information. If you still need additional clarification, you can call (407) 939-7523 where a helpful cast member can give you more detailed information. 

    Thanks for stopping by! I hope you can enjoy the magic as soon as you arrive. Please come back and see us again for any additional questions you might have about your upcoming visit to the place where the magic is endless. 

    See you real soon,
