    Is it possible to use the park tickets that are part of our Magic Your Way package before our resort check-in date? We are only staying one night on Disney property but wanted to visit a park the day before check-in.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Keira! I’m excited to see that you’re busy planning your next magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for stopping by with another question!

    I have some good news, it is possible to use the theme park tickets that are part of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package before you actually check in to your Disney Resort hotel. There are a few things you should know before you go that route. You will not be able to make FastPass+ selections before your booked reservation date. This means that while you can use your park tickets, you will not be able to make FastPass+ selections in advance for that day you use your ticket before check-in. You will, however, be able to make selections for your check in date and the days that follow. Another thing I have been told by more than one Cast Member, is that you would have to pick up your theme park tickets at the Front Desk of the Disney Resort hotel you will be checking in to. 

    Keira, Disney Resort hotel guests get to enjoy lots of benefits. Complimentary MagicBands, Extra Magic Hours and a 60-day window to make FastPass+ selections for your favorite attractions before your planned visit, are just a few of those benefits. There are also lots of recreation activities at your Disney Resort hotel, like Movies Under the Stars, campfires and the spectacular resort pools are always a fun place to spend some time with your family!

    I hope this information is helpful to you as you continue planning your stay. Feel free to drop by any time with additional questions. Helping you with all the details of your visit is our pleasure!
