    We are checking into our Disney hotel at 3:00 on Tuesday, April 24th but are hoping to use our tickets that day. How does that work? Can we pick up our tickets earlier than check in?

    Hi Kristen,

    You most certainly may pick up your tickets early on your day of check-in.  My family has done this on numerous occasions.  Simply head to your Disney resort before leaving for the theme park of your choice that day.  Even if your resort room is not ready, the Cast Member at the check-in desk can still give you your Key to the World card.  If you have purchased a Disney vacation package with theme park tickets, your theme park tickets will be on your Key to the World card.  Later in the day, when your room is ready, you will be notified by text or phone call.  So count on a full day of fun during the first day of your Walt Disney World vacation!

    Let us know if you have any additional questions regarding your upcoming trip.
