    iam staying onsite for 2 nights and plan to buy a 1 day park hopper plus ticket, if I link the ticket to my hotel reservation on my Disney experience am I able to use my 2 fun visits the week before I check in as I will be off site.

    Thank you for returning to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Neil! It looks like you have a lovely little vacation ahead of you with lots of fun in store!

    Unless you purchase a Magic Your Way Package vacation, your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Stay and Park tickets can act independently of one another. So yes, you can use your park tickets ahead of your hotel stay, but remember you will not reap the benefits of a Resort Guest while you are in the parks unless you are staying in the Hotel at that time. Those include planning your FastPass+ reservations 60 days ahead (instead of the standard 30), Extra Magic Hours and Resort Merchandise Delivery. You will be able to ride all the rides and see the attractions, but consider holding off your park visit if you want these benefits, too!

    If I can help you plan any other aspect of your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
