    We will be vacationing in Orlando for 14 days. First 7 days just outside of WDW and 7 days at BLT. We will have 7 days base tickets + water parks and more. We plan on using water park and mini golf tickets before going to a theme park. Is this possible? TY

    Hi Steven,

    Wow!  It sounds like you have quite a vacation planned. I'm so excited about all of the incredible experiences you will have with two weeks in Central Florida.  

    I have great news!  Your theme park, water park, and miniature golf experiences are basically independent of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay. There are really only two details to keep in mind:  

    First, most theme park tickets expire 14-days after first use. Since your vacation is exactly that long, this should not have an impact on your plans. However, if you decide to extend your vacation, you will want to be mindful of this timeframe. 

    Also, if you chose to visit a theme park before you begin your stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you will not have access to Extra Magic Hours as those are reserved exclusively for current Resort Hotel Guests.  

    Other than that, you are free to enjoy your tickets in whatever way works best for you and your family!

    I hope that helps, Steven.  Please stop back by and visit us if we can help with anything else.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
