    Hi-trip planned for Nov 11-17 (free dining plan) - if we arrive 1 day early (driving from Canada) - can we pick up and use our park tickets on Nov.11 (trying to decide how many days of tickets to buy.) Few months away, but I can't wait. Thanks!

    Hi Holly,

    You must be very excited for your trip! Your time frame is perfect as it will be low crowds with some holiday magic sprinkled in as well.

    As for picking your tickets up early, it depends on the type of ticket. I am guessing based on your question your tickets are part of a package since you mentioned free dining. If so, your tickets are good for the length of your stay. In your case, you are checking in on November 11 which would be the first day you could activate your tickets.

    If this is the case, you would not be eligible to use those tickets unless you check in a day earlier. You could then add an extra day to your tickets.

    Personally, I would recommend not getting a ticket early if you arrive a day earlier than planned. Take the time to recover from your trip. Then check in early the next day, leave your bags with bell services, grab your tickets and go. You will be rested and ready to enjoy your vacation.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
