    Hello, We check into the Boardwalk Villas on a Sunday. I have purchased the 10 day tickets with water park option. We will be in Orlando a couple of days before our check in day. Can we use the water parks before our official check in day? Thank you!

    Hi Jerry!

    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you have quite a fantastic vacation upcoming at one of my favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts, Disney's BoardWalk Villas.

    If you booked your reservation as part of a Magic Your Way package directly through Walt Disney World Resort Central Reservations, then you should feel free to activate your Theme Park Admission Tickets up to three days before your check-in. Please keep in mind, though, that your tickets will still expire 14-days after activation, even if you have remaining entitlements. So you will want to consider which days you are planning to visit the theme parks, and plan accordingly. 

    If you have purchased your Theme Park Admission Tickets outside of a Magic Your Way package, then those will not be linked to your check-in date. You will be able to enter any theme park or water park as soon as you arrive in Central Florida, if you wish. Of course, these are also subject to the same 14-day expiration.

    I hope this helps are you plan your unforgettable Disney Parks visit. Please let us know if you have any additional questions, Jerry!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
