    If we want to spend a good amount of time in the park on our first day there, can we get our tickets before we check in to our room and go ahead into the parks? Would it be easier to book tickets and rooms separately if we want to do this?

    Hi, Natalie!  You can arrive early in the day at your resort and go ahead and check in.  You will get your key cards, and you can head into the theme parks.  If your room is not available when you check in, bell services will hold your bags for you.

    There won't even be a need to check back in at the front desk.  You will be given a phone number to call, and when you do, they will tell you where your room is.  Your key card will already be keyed to that room, so when you're coming back from an exhausting day at the park, you can go right to your room to get comfortable.

    It doesn't mater if you book the package or the components separately.  You'll have no trouble getting into the parks either way.  The one difference is if you book your tickets separately on line, they will mail them to you, which removes the need to go to the hotel at all.

    Have a great vacation!
