    Purchased park tickets with our hotel room (All Star Movie) just wondering where we pick up our tickets? Can the hotel when we check in assist us? Thank you.

    Hi Lisa!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  I love counting down to my next Walt Disney World Resort vacation. . .how about you?  While your trip may still be a few months away, it's never too early to start getting all of your Donald Ducks in a row!

    I think you're going to love Disney's All-Star Movie Resort. I stayed here a few years ago and really enjoyed the feeling of being immersed in some of my favorite Disney movies.  While the inside of the hotel rooms here are all pretty much the same, the outside theming is so fun to explore.  In fact, I spent an afternoon just wandering around the resort to get pictures from all of the different sections!  My favorite area of the resort is the Toy Story section which is conveniently located near Cinema Hall - the main lobby and dining area of the resort.  

    Lisa, it sounds like you booked a vacation package that includes your tickets and hotel.  If you booked directly through Disney, you should see your hotel reservation and park tickets linked in your My Disney Experience account.  If they're not there, you can link them using the confirmation numbers you received when booking.  Walt Disney World Resort offers several options to access your park tickets for theme park entry.  First, if you already have a Disney band (also known as a MagicBand) linked to your account, you can tap the band at the touchpoint to enter the park.  Disney bands can also be purchased and linked upon arrival at your resort.  Disney MagicMobile is also available which allows you to download a digital theme park pass to your mobile wallet and again simply tap at the touchpoints to enter.  Key to the World plastic cards are still available upon request if you'd prefer to use those instead of a digital method of entry.  The Cast Members at the front desk will be able to assist you with any of these if needed upon arrival!

    Whichever method you choose for park entry can also be used to tap in at Lightning Lane or Virtual Queue entrances.  Virtual Queues are available to join starting at 7:00 AM and again at 1:00 PM for TRON Lightcycle/Run at Magic Kingdom Park and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT.  We also just found out this morning that Tiana's Bayou Adventure, Walt Disney World Resort's newest attraction, will be using a Virtual Queue when it opens on June 28, 2024.  You'll also be able to use Disney Genie+ service to try and grab a return time for a Lightning Lane as well!  

    Lisa, I hope this information helps you prepare for your upcoming visit!  Please feel free to drop by and see us again here at planDisney if you have any other vacation planning questions!
