    I am going first week of October and staying off property. I plan on attending 2 parks and staying at contemporary on Tuesday night for mnsshp. If I get the pickets with hotel, am I able to use for a park on Monday with a checking date at hotel for Tuesday

    Hi, Heather! Thanks so much for stopping by with your question. Fall at Walt Disney World Resort is a spook-tacular time to visit the parks! Attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is my older daughter's favorite way to celebrate the season. There are so many shows and character meets going on during the party, but be sure not to miss Mickey's Boo to You Halloween Parade. You may want to find a spot among the other Foolish Mortals to enjoy the parade well before it begins, as there is a special visitor that gallops along the parade path to herald its beginning.

    You can absolutely use your theme park tickets for the day before you plan to check in at Disney's Contemporary Resort. In my experience, I have been able to have theme park tickets that are part of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package activated up to three days early. This can be done at the Concierge desk at Disney's Contemporary Resort or at any Guest Relations location. These are found at each theme parks and Disney Springs. In your case, I would try to get this done at the Disney Springs location a couple of days ahead of time so you do not have to spend extra time the morning you plan to use them. This would save lots of time for extra rides on your favorite attractions! 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.

    Thanks again for bringing your question to us and please let us know if you have any other questions as continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures this fall!
