    I'm staying on property. I purchased 5-day ticket with water park option. I may be staying in Orlando area a few days before I check into my Disney Resort. Can I use tickets at the theme or water parks a few days before I check in to the resort? Thanks

    Welcome BACK to planDisney, Jonas! It is so great to see you here asking another vacation question. I completely understand you wanting to get a start on your theme park and water park days as soon as you arrive in the Orlando area. I can’t imagine having to wait, knowing that I am in such close proximity to the magic!

    You can use your theme park tickets on an earlier date, prior to your Disney Resort hotel arrival, you will just need to change the dates on your theme park tickets. If you have already linked your theme park ticket to My Disney Experience, you can change the date easily by selecting “My Tickets” and then the “Change Tickets” option. You can then select the ticket or tickets you are wanting to change and click “Continue”. You will then be brought to a screen that will allow you to make modifications to your existing theme park ticket such as ticket dates, number of days and ticket type. Once you have made the necessary changes, simply click “Check Out” to complete the modifications. If there is a price difference between your original ticket dates and the newly selected dates you will be prompted to pay upon checkout. 

    If you have not already linked your theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience, I highly recommend that you do so to make changes to your theme park tickets. You can also call (407) 939-5277 to speak with a Cast Member who can assist you in making those changes. Be sure that you also update your park reservations on the new Disney Park Pass system.

    I hope that this information helps you to get a jump start on experiencing the magic of your next Walt Disney World vacation. Please stop back by planDisney any time we can help answer your vacation questions.
