    I am planning to purchase Disney tickets from Boardwalk Ticketing, but will have to go to a Will Call window at Magic Kingdom for pick up. Will be worth my time or if I will be standing in line for ages if I go right at opening. Not staying on property.

    Hey there, hi there, Leslie! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! I'm so glad you've stopped by with such a great question.

    Before you know it, you'll be embarking on your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I know you must be getting excited, Leslie! Since you're planning to purchase your Walt Disney World theme park tickets and are already planning ways to spend less time waiting in line and more time in the magic, it sounds like your planning is off to a practically perfect start. Now, let's tie up your loose planning ends so you can sit back, relax and start your pixie-dusted countdown!

    In my experience, the line for Guest Relations outside of Magic Kingdom Park varies from day to day. Sometimes the line is long, and sometimes it isn't. But I must admit that if I ever need to stop at Guest Relations in the morning, I try to avoid doing so at Magic Kingdom, as that Guest Relations line does always seem to be one of the longest out of all the Guest Relations locations. And is there anything worse than excitedly arriving at Magic Kingdom and having to wait outside? Let's chat about some options to get you straight to the magic.

    While I have never purchased tickets from a third-party vendor, it is possible that you can skip a Will Call stop and head straight into Magic Kingdom when you arrive! When you purchase your tickets, you should receive a confirmation number. When you receive this number, log in to your My Disney Experience account and try to link your tickets to your account. If they link properly, you can simply use Disney MagicMobile Service on the My Disney Experience app to tap right into the magic and skip Will Call. Let the magic begin!

    Last (but certainly not least) tip, Leslie! Don't forget that Theme Park Reservations are required to enter all four of the theme parks. This means that if you pick your tickets up at Will Call on the day you plan to visit Magic Kingdom Park, you run the risk of the Theme Park Reservations for Magic Kingdom being sold out, and that is definitely less than magical. Once you link your theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience account, be sure to make your Theme Park Reservations for your desired theme parks and dates as soon as possible. They're your key to the magic, and I'm so excited to see what you unlock!

    I hope this helps, Leslie, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable visit. Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    Chase the wind and touch the sky,
