    Hi, I purchased a MYW pkg with a 7d pk hopper. i purchased 2 nights at AK Lodge then we transfer to Boardwalk Resort. The MYW pkg is for Boardwalk resort, which we are staying 5 nights. Can we begin our park tickets while we are at AK Lodge?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Stacy! 

    I love having the opportunity to help my fellow South Carolinians with their Walt Disney World® Resort vacations. Being able to travel from the land of smiling faces and beautiful places to the most magical place on earth is always a joy. 

    You have selected some amazing Resort hotels for your vacation - you're really going to have two very different experiences. "Split-stays" are the best! Luckily, even though your theme park tickets are linked to the Magic Your Way Vacation Package that is part of your stay at Disney's BoardWalk Resort, you may use your theme park tickets as you wish up to 10 days in advance of your BoardWalk Inn or Villa reservation. Your MagicBands for your Animal Kingdom Lodge stay should auto-magically work to allow you entrance into the parks - you won't even need to use the MagicBands you receive for the BoardWalk portion of your stay. Another great benefit, your 60 day FastPass+ booking window should open with your Animal Kingdom Lodge reservation! Giving you a jump on the rest of your stay. 

    Another great tip is to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App for your smartphone. The latest update to this app includes being able to track the days used/remaining on your theme park tickets. This could be very helpful now that you are extending your stay and theme park ticket usage. 

    I hope this is helpful in your planning, Stacy! Please do not hesitate to reach back out to me with any additional questions you may have. I am here to help you plan all the magical details.
