    How do I purchase and reserve tickets when I want the rope drop access, but my local annual pass holding parents, are paying for and scheduling the resort fee at Fort Wilderness campsite where I'll be staying with them in their camper there?

    Hi there, Jenna!  You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    In my opinion, one of the best benefits of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel is early theme park entry.  Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels and select other hotels can enter the theme parks each day 30 minutes before the regular park opening time.  It's a great way to maximize the magic of your Walt Disney World Resort day!  I'm happy to tell you that Guests staying at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are included in this perk.

    To take advantage of the early theme park entry benefit, you'll want to first make sure that you and your parents are connected in the Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience accounts.  I think the easiest way to do this is to go to the "My Profile" section of your My Disney Experience mobile app, then scroll down and click on "Show My Linking Code."  You can then have the other members of your party scan your code if you are with them.  If you are not together, you can have your family members or friends enter the manual code. 

    Once all of the members of your party are shown in each other's Family & Friends Lists, you can have your parents add you to their reservation for The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort at the time of booking.  If your parents have already booked their reservation and they need assistance with adding a Guest, you can have them call the Help Center phone number for Disney Resort Hotel Reservations.

    You can then go ahead and purchase your theme park tickets on the Walt Disney World Resort website, link them to your My Disney Experience account, and be sure to make your theme park reservations.  As long as you're using your tickets on the dates of your resort hotel reservation, anyone listed on that reservation with valid theme park admission (annual pass or regular tickets) will be eligible for early theme park entry.

    While you're staying at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, be sure to check out Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long and Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.  These fan-favorite experiences are sure to help you and your family make some magical vacation memories.  If we can help you with anything else as you get ready for your trip, please don't hesitate to ask.  We're all ears!

    See ya real soon!
