    We're planning our 1st DW visit! If we check-in to our DW resort in the late afternoon/evening, is it possible to have our park tickets start the next day? We're thinking of going to SW before checking in so we don't lose a day on our DW park tickets.

    Hi Amy!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    You just need to have park tickets for the days you want to visit a park.  So, for example, suppose you are going to stay at the Wilderness Lodge (my favorite resort) for 7 nights, but only want to visit the parks on 3 days.  In that case, you just need to purchase a 3 Day Magic Your Way ticket, even though you will be staying at the Wilderness Lodge for a week.

    Your park tickets don't "start" until you try and use it in a theme park.  So the answer to your question is "yes".

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and please write back with more questions!
