    Can I get into the parks before my check in time if I have park tickets already

    Hi Daniel,

    Get out your suitcase and start planning your bag, because it looks like you will be living your Disney dreams so soon. Can you almost smell the popcorn and hear the music? It will be here before you know it. 

    It sounds to me, Daniel, like you are ready to make the most of every magical minute. That's why I am thrilled to share with you that your theme park admission is valid from the moment the theme park opens. There is no need to wait until your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room is ready to start your Disney Parks adventure. 

    Do keep in mind, though, that while date-based tickets do not require a Theme Park Reservation, some ticket types do. Be sure to review the guidelines to see if your particular tickets require this quick extra step to visit your favorite (and soon-to-be favorite!) Walt Disney World Resort attractions. 

    You have a few options to quickly and conveniently pass through the gates. You could tap a pre-purchased MagicBand or MagicBand+, use Disney's MagicMobile Service, or you can swing by Guest Relations for a physical ticket card. All of these will get you through in no time.

    Have you completed Online Check-In through My Disney Experience yet, Daniel? If so, you will receive an email and a text message as soon as your Resort hotel room is ready. Check out the app to see your room number and a map of your Resort hotel, so you can go straight to your door and open it using the same options as above. There is no need to even visit the check-in desk upon arrival! 

    I hope that is helpful. Let us know what other questions you have in this short time before your arrival. We are here for you! 

    Adventure is out there,
