    Hello, I have a room only reservation followed by a package with park hopper and more tickets. Am I able to activate the tickets and go to a water park on our first day, which would be the day before we check into the resort the tickets are a part of?

    Hi, Lindsay! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for bringing us another great question. I recently added an extra day to our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It just made sense to me since the price of flights were so much cheaper that day. My husband had to laugh at my reasoning skills, which just happened to give us more time for extra Dole Whip Floats and rides on my favorite Magic Carpet. An extra day at work or a day in Adventureland? I think I like the "day early" plan better.

    I firmly believe there is no such thing as too much magic, so you are welcome to add this extra bit of ticketing magic to your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. To make this happen, you will need to stop by Guest Relations, found at Disney Springs or outside any of the theme parks and water parks, to have your theme park tickets activated. In my experience, the Cast Members there are more than happy to help you activate Magic Your Way Package tickets up to three days in advance. Please note that other components of your package, such as a Disney Dining Plan, will not be active until the morning you check in to the Resort hotel stay to which they are associated.
    Thanks again for stopping by to chat with us. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you plan your stay!
