    We will be visiting WDW in a few months. We have purchased a MYW package for a portion of our stay but will be arriving the day before and staying at a different Disney resort. Can we use our tickets from the MYW package the day before our check in date?

    Greetings, Barbara! Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel for help with your magical vacation; it will be here before you know it!

    A Magic Your Way Vacation Package is the best way to get what you want on your schedule, and there’s good news! If you are hopping in a day early, then you can’t possibly be late like the White Rabbit is. You can activate your package tickets and MagicBands BEFORE your Magic Your Way Package begins, up to 14 days before your package check-in date. By walking up to any ticket window at any of Walt Disney World Resort’s four theme parks, you can have a Cast Member help activate them and your MagicBands. Keep in mind that if you want to make FastPass+ reservations for your favorite rides (mine are Peter Pan and The Haunted Mansion), you’ll have to either make them for your original package dates or wait until after you activate your tickets to make them on your “early” day.

    Make sure you make use of any Extra Magic Hours, since you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, and remember you can visit the BellHop stand to have your luggage transferred to your second resort while you are having fun in the parks! I’ve used the service several times and it’s a HUGE time saver (not to mention a muscle-save since you don’t have to lift a finger!). Please let me know if you have any other questions I can help with! ~ Lindsey P.
