    Due to flight prices, we had to fly in 2 days prior to resort package reservation in aug. staying at same resort for 2 nights and then re checking in With the original reservation. Are we able to start using park tickets before checking in?

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'd say the only thing more fun than a Walt Disney World vacation is arriving at the vacation early and getting the magic started sooner. If you are arriving within a week before your check-in day — and it sounds like you are — you can visit a Guest Relations window at one of the theme parks or visit Guest Relations at Disney Springs to activate your theme park tickets and you will be provided with plastic admission cards to access the the parks.

    You're visiting at a great time as there's lots to do and see and enjoy this summer at Walt Disney World, including all the new fun you can have playing big in Andy's backyard at Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Here's wishing you a most magical vacation.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
