    We live 10 hrs. from Walt Disney World we drive down day before our Magic Your Way package starts, we purchasa room only the day we arrive, package starts next day.We purchase a 5night 6day ,can we start hooper tickets the day before package starts?

    Hi there Rebecca!

    I had to call Disney's Central Reservations Office at 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639) to research the answer to your question. I was informed that as long as your room-only reservation is at the same Disney resort as your package, then you can request your tickets early. Magic Your Way tickets can be obtained up to 3 days prior to your package check-in date at your resort's Lobby Concierge. You must have continuing reservations in order to do this. You'll only be able to receive paper tickets as they can't be transferred to your Key to the World card. I was also told that this is not something commonly done and may require some patience while the cast member at resort check-in obtains some additional assistance.

    By the way, my family typically makes the 9-10 hour drive to Walt Disney World too! Be sure to check out some fun resources on the unofficial website for help in making the miles fly past almost as quickly as Tinkerbell in Pixie Hollow. Simply type in "Road Trip" in the search box at the top of the page.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit us at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and feel free to send more questions our way in the days leading up to your trip! May your Disney vacation be practically perfect in every way!
