    We have a resort reservation including park tickets but will be arriving in Orlando 2 days earlier than the reservation. Will I be able to use those tickets before my resort reservation starts?

    Hey, Jaclyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Park admission is not directly related to your Walt Disney World Resort reservation. Even though you purchased a package, you can use the park tickets before your hotel reservation begins. However, tickets have an expiration date of 14 days after the first use. So be sure to use all of the tickets in enough time.

    Also, if you use all of your park tickets before you check out of your Walt Disney World resort, you would need to purchase additional tickets to continue the magic in the parks for your entire stay. 

    As an alternative to visiting the parks, my family enjoys resort hopping, spending the day at Disney Springs, taking the Monorail for a joy ride, and cruising the Disney's Boardwalk! There's so much to do outside the parks! Oh and don't forget miniature golf at Fantasia  Gardens and Miniature Golf and Winter Summerland Miniature Golf! Or you can just enjoy your resort by taking a dip in the pool!

    Enjoy your upcoming Disney vacation! If you have more questions, please visit with us again soon!

    Happy planning!
