    My family is getting in to orlando a day before our resort package starts and we plan to go to disney springs and was also wanting to know if i could use the mini golf ticket that day or does it have to be when the package stay starts? Thanks

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I hope your vacation is coming up soon. Mine is not until early next year, and I'm already counting down the hours!

    One of the great benefits of booking a vacation package is that all your entitlements and purchases, such as Theme Park Tickets and Dining Plans, are available from the moment you Check-In and are good until you Check-Out from the hotel. Packages also include awesome Magical Extras, like vouchers for Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf and Winter Summerland Miniature Golf, and access to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

    Guests may request their Theme Park Tickets associated with a vacation package, one or two days in advance of their Check-In, by visiting Guest Relations at the entrance of any of the Theme Parks or Disney Springs. Magical Extras and other benefits like Dining Plans are not available prior to Check-In, but you may want to ask just in case if they could make an exception. A great option is to ask Guest Services to add an extra day to your Theme Park Tickets for a small price difference.

    One last tip: if you visit the Theme Parks the day before arrival, you will only be able to make same-day FastPass+ reservations. This could be a great day to find Disney PhotoPass Service photographers for special Magic Shots. Happy planning!
