    Traveling to WDW in January (:D!) We are checking in on a Sunday and out the following Saturday. We have 5 day PH passes. Am I correct in assuming that our passes do not "start" until we enter the gates to our 1st park? Hoping to use them M-F.

    Hello Brian!

    Thanks so much for your question. Your Walt Disney World vacation is just around the river bend! Your 5-day Park Hopper tickets will not be used until you touch your MagicBand to the touch points upon entering the park. It won't take off a day's worth of tickets unless you touch your MagicBand to a touch point. So for example, even though you arrive on Sunday, you still have 5-day park hopper tickets. You don't have to go for 5 consecutive days either. You could, for instance, go to a park Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, take Wednesday and Thursday to enjoy your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, and then use the last two days of tickets on Friday and Saturday. 

    I hope this makes sense. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask and we'd be more than happy to help. Have a magical vacation!
