    Can we use our parks tickets prior to check-in?

    Hi Polly,

    Yes you can! One of the things I love about Walt Disney World is that you can head to a park prior to your room being ready and start your vacation right away! All you need are you tickets!

    The only reason you would need to stop at your Walt Disney World Resort prior to your heading to a park is if you have the Disney Dining Plan. In this case, a quick trip to your resort to activate your tickets and meals and then you are on your way. If you room is ready, great. If not, they will let you know when it is.

    Just a tip, you can check-in anytime during the day. Your room may or may not be ready but you can at least take advantage of the amenities or store you luggage before heading to a park!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
