Find a scheduled flight that fits your desired time frame and give ME that airline and flight number. This is routine for me unless Iíd rather cut it close and take Lyft.

Curious, what happens when CM goes to print your boarding pass and finds that you aren't on that flight? I travel without checked luggage, use mobile boarding passes, but still find that about 50% of the time, some helpful CM has decided to print my family's boarding passes along with the pickup instructions.

If you go through Disney or DVC, then you would want to find a real flight number.

However if you contact DME direct, they do not care whether you have a flight or not. You can just tell them what time you want to get there.

I was going to post that this only applies if youíre using the Resort Airline Check-in which is totally separate from DME. However I re-read it. Thatís very strange, but even so a resort reservation gives you a complimentary transfer from and to the airport, so I wouldnít worry about it.

Default Are There Any Current Ticket Offers?

I need to get our granddaughter age 5 a ticket for May so we can make FPs when our 60 day window opens. Any recommendations?

I have had good luck with both Undercover Tourist and The Official Ticket Center.

You can also try the Touring Plans Ticket Compare Tool.

The only special ticket available currently is a 4-Park Magic Ticket. No park hopping and you get 1 day at each of the 4 theme parks.

https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/ad...k-magic-offer/

Other than that, if looking for 3 or more park days consider a 3rd party ticket seller like undercover tourist.

Thank you both for the replies. I didnít know the 4 day 1 park a day tickets were still an option so good to know. We may need a park hopper though and maybe an extra day since we have APs. Thanks again.

There’s this but it’s titled for 2018-2019.

http://www.mouseowners.com/forums/sh...highlight=ROFR

Maybe time for someone to create a new one?
