    Our vacation is just days away! We will be arriving April 6th and I am planning on doing the on-line check-in. My question it possible to pick up your tickets the day before your reservations begin?

    Hi Sharon,

    It is almost time for your single digit countdown dance. Yahoo!

    I love the ease and convenience of the online check-in system, and I have found it does greatly minimize the time I spend at the front desk. This means more time to play!

    I will assume that your Disney park passes are part of a Disney vacation package that you purchased. If that is the case, then unfortunately no, you will not be able to pick up your park tickets the day before you check in. These passes would be set to begin on your arrival date and are added to your Keys to the Kingdom resort card. This one card will act as your key to your resort room, park pass and charge card if you set up charging back to your room. If you are wanting to get an early start on your park time that morning, you are able to stop at your resort as early as you would like and "check-in". While the room will most likely not be ready, the Cast Member will be able to complete any paperwork and provide you with your Keys to the World, and therefore your park pass. You will be able to store your luggage if needed, until later that day when your room is ready. Now you are free to play.

    If your park passes have been purchased online or at a Disney store, and are not part of your resort vacation package, these vouchers can be exchanged at any Guest Relations window at the parks, for your park ticket. In this case, you would not need to check in to your Disney resort and could pick them up a day early.

    Wishing you an absolute fantastic time!
