    We are staying at Disney’s Boardwalk in just a few weeks. We purchased 10 Day Park Hopper Tickets as part of the MYW package. We will be arriving early to Orlando and staying with family. Can we use our tickets prior to checking into the Boardwalk?

    Hello Michael!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question!

    I have just spoken to a Cast Member who was extremely helpful in providing updated information. I am happy to share with you that you are allowed to use tickets that are part of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package before checking in your Disney Resort hotel. However, there are a couple of details you need to be aware of.

    You are allowed to use theme park admission that is part of a package up to 10 days prior to your check-in date. In this case, even if you already have a MagicBand, you will need to stop by a Guest Relations window located at the entrance of any of the four theme parks or visit Concierge at your Disney Resort hotel to activate your tickets. Please note that in order to do so you need to make sure that the tickets are not date-based, in which case you will only be able to use them on the dates they were purchased for. Another very important detail you need to take into consideration is that you will not be able to make FastPass+ selections for the days you use tickets before your check-in date. You will only be able to make selections for your check-in date and the days that follow.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Michael! Enjoy your stay at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn and all the benefits available for Disney Resort hotel Guests.

    Best magical wishes,
