I recently booked my WDW room (Contemporary) via the Disney reservation phone line. I booked my room "ala carte" and without any admission tickets in order to avoid being considered having bought a "package". (It's my understanding that the packages are more expensive since they give you insurance and you can't get a stripped down basic admission ticket.)
So my question is: Now that I'm looking to buy my admission tickets ala carte, how do I do so while still ensuring 1: That my ticket will allow me "Magical Hours" access to the parks, and 2: That I can get my admission tickets combined with my room key so I only have to carry one card around? (this is what I've had before when I bought a package.)
Should I purchase online from Disney's website and pick "pickup at will call" (assuming the front desk of my hotel is a will call pickup location?), or should I wait until I arrive and purchase my tickets from the hotel front desk at check-in (if you can)?, or Should I do something else to accomplish my goals?
Any help from you experts is appreciated!
