    doug, booked at Coronado Springs aug 15-19 and i know check in is like 3pm at resort right? but i booked "donald breakfast (8:20am) and was going to MK afterwards. am i getting tkts in mail? how will I be able to get in MK if check in is till later


    With a combination vacation (tickets & hotel), you would get your tickets when you checked in to the resort. Your tickets and room keys will be one and the same.

    But even if check-in is at 3pm, that just means that your room is not guaranteed to be ready until then. You can still check in earlier, get your room key/tickets, and go out and have fun. They will hold your luggage until your room is ready. They can even call or text message your phone when the room is ready!

    So, you can go hit parks on your arrival day as soon as you get your tickets from the resort.

    But if you have an early reservation that might require that you go straight to a park, I would call Disney and ask if you can get the tickets "separated" from your room keys. Then ask them to mail them in advance to your home. That way you could have the tickets to go straight to a park.

    Note that if you are using Magical Express, you cannot get those buses to take you anywhere but your resort.

    Does that help? Please write back if you need any clarification!

    Have a magical vacation!
