    I purchased 3rd party tickets and I must visit a Will Call center to validate my tickets. At what time are these centers open? I plan on being at the parks at rope drop and I would hate to lose some time waiting for this. tks

    Hi Carl,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    It's great to hear you're planning your trip to Walt Disney World, and it's especially great that you are planning to get an early start to your magic when you visit the theme parks for rope drop.

    The theme park ticket centers located near the entrance of each of the theme parks open 1 hour before the scheduled park opening, and that includes morning Extra Magic Hours.

    You can view the scheduled theme park hours using the online Park Hours calendar.

    Another idea to consider is to visit the Disney Springs Welcome Center located in Town Center. If your schedule permits, you could visit there the day before you want to visit a theme park and take care of your ticketing needs.

    I always find mornings in the theme parks to be really enjoyable, and starting the day off with a welcome like Let the Magic Begin is a fun way to start the day.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
