    How early can we obtain our tickets on the day of our arrival? We would love to be able to get there for the opening ceremony.

    Hi Deborah,

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm glad to know that in just a couple of months you'll start your magical journey to Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting!

    Arriving early has it's benefits. Typically you want to get a to a Theme Park at least half an hour prior to the scheduled opening time, in order to watch it's opening ceremony. If you need to pick up your Theme Park Tickets ahead of time, you have a few options. Guest Relations, at any of the Theme Parks opens approximately half hour before park opening, but there's also an office located in Disney Springs, so you could pick them up the night before if you are in the area. Now, if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, and booked a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, all you need to do is Check-In to your hotel, and your MagicBands will have your Tickets.

    One last tip: make sure you make advanced FastPass+ reservations for up to three of your favorite attractions. See you real soon!
