Yes you can do that
Wait until at least mid-November.We are planning a trip for Jan 14-18. I'm a little leery about purchasing tickets too far in advance should this fall/winter bring another wave of closures to WDW, but I also don't want to wait until the last minute to get them and make park reservations on MLK weekend. What are your suggestions for when we should purchase? I'm usually on top of my game, but I don't know what the procedure was for people who had purchased when they closed last time. What would our options be? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
1. Some say that they can.1. Are the resort concierges able to prioritize the days on your tickets? I have left over days from previous trips (unexpired & comp tickets) but I want to use the tickets I purchased for this trip first and save the unexpired and comp tickets,
2. can the resort concierge prioritize the tickets or do I need to go to guest relations at the parks or Disney Springs to accomplish this.
3. Also my tickets for this trip have park hoppers, who will be able to reimburse me for that? Resort or Guest Relations?
I held off buying my tickets, but kept checking back in just to make sure the advance ticket reservations weren’t going fast as you said and they weren’t, but they are now. I got mine purchased and reservations in as this was starting, so I’m good. But heads up, at least for Fall Break for many school districts, it looks like things are picking up.But, the reason I said what I did is that, in general, guests have not had any difficultly reserving parks even very near the actual trip dates.
No need to buy tickets far in advance just because park reservations are needed.
Unless things have changed during the pandemic, he will have a card-style ticket (like a credit card). It will be mailed to him or he can pick it up if there is not enough time to have it mailed.Thanks for the info. If he doesn't buy a Magic Band will his ticket just be loaded onto his phone in the MDE app and is that what he will show at the gate?
If he does not receive a plastic ticket before arrival, he can just go directly to the regular park entrance gates on his day at the park and (using his legal photo ID and his ticket number... on the phone screen will work) the plastic ticket will be issued to him right at the park gates.Thanks for the info.

Card style ticket, the only thing that has changed is no finger prints. Just hold the ticket in front of Mickey and wait for the green light.Unless things have changed during the pandemic, he will have a card-style ticket (like a credit card).

You can go to the gate. They will scan it and give you a plastic ticket card there.I purchased a one day ticket and my email confirmation has a barcode and it says Show at Park Entrance. Does this mean I need to go to guest services or can they scan it at the gate?
