    If I am checking in to Port Orleans on 6/10/17 with a group and have water park and more tickets but going a few days early and staying offsite, can i use my water park and more tickets prior to my check in date?

    Hi, Julia! You can absolutely have your Magic Your Way Package tickets activated up to three days early for your trip. The best way to do this is to stop by the Concierge desk at the resort you intend to stay and the Cast Members there should be able to assist you. I have heard from others that you can also do this at a Guest Relations location at the theme parks and Disney Springs, but I have only done it at my resort. Please note that if you have included one of the Disney Dining Plans in your Magic Your Way Package, those entitlements will not be accessible until the date the package begins.

    Julia, have you heard of the Sassagoula River Cruise yet? This ferry boat service runs between the two Disney's Port Orleans Resorts (Riverside and French Quarter) and Disney Springs. It operates throughout the day and late into the evening, perfect for visiting Disney Springs for dinner and shopping. I always recommend to my friends that they spend one day away from the theme parks during their trips. If you decide to do this, Disney Springs has you covered with Splitsville Luxury Lanes for an afternoon full of squeals or the AMC Movies at Disney Springs 24 for a relaxing afternoon with the family.

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