    If I purchase my park tickets through a 3rd party but I book the hotel through Disney and stay on property am I still allowed to use the early admission

    Hi Kelly,

    One of the best perks of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is Early Theme Park Entry. I love having the ability to head over to the theme parks 30 minutes before my friends who are staying elsewhere especially because I get to ride straight to the theme park entrance on Disney transportation.

    You can purchase your theme park tickets through a third-party vendor but you will need to add them into your My Disney Experience account to ensure that everything is ready to go when your vacation begins. You will need your confirmation number or full ticket number to add your third-party ticket to your official Disney account. I recommend doing this as soon as possible so you can ensure that everything is working properly. To link a ticket to your account, log in to the My Disney Experience app and choose the three stacked line icons in the bottom right corner. Click "My Tickets and Passes" then choose "Link Tickets and Passes." This is where you will enter your confirmation number and link the ticket to your account. Once everything is linked you will be ready to utilize all of the perks you get for staying at a Disney resort hotel.

    My favorite perk of staying on Disney property is utilizing the transportation throughout my vacation. The iconic monorail transportation gives you access to Magic Kingdom and EPCOT and is a fabulous ride all on its own. I love taking a day to ride on the monorail and explore, shop, and eat at all of the resorts on the monorail loop. The new Disney Skyliner is a gondola high in the sky that gives you quick access to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. I also love taking a ride on the water taxis around Seven Seas Lagoon or Bay Lake. Make sure to take full advantage of all the transportation options available during your vacation and don't forget to enjoy them to the fullest!

    Happy Planning
