Can I buy park tickets at hotel?

I check in tomorrow morning at RPR. Can I buy my park ticket there? I have never stayed onsite before. We are going to check in super early for early entry and express passes. Thanks!

No you can't. You will get your express pass there but you must buy your tickets at the kiosks at the park entrance.

If you are buying multi day tickets, buy them online and pick them up at the hotel kiosk. It is much cheaper than buying them at the gates. If you are just getting a one day ticket, it doesn't matter.

Thanks. I am buying a one day ticket. Can i buy that online and pick up at a hotel kiosk to avoid lines at front gate? Does anyone know when front gate opens?

Yes you can get it online and at the front gate. Front gates open at least half an hour before early admission.

If you are ordering online, check to make sure that there isn't a certain amount of time that you must have before you pick them up. I'm not sure if it is an immediate transaction or not.

So...this is late, but I purchased our tickets at RPR at the concierge next to the Express Pass machine.

I think the problem was that the OP was checking in super early. Concierge probably wouldn't be available yet.

Ahhh. Gotcha! That makes sense. I know we went in the morning but it was after 8a since we had breakfast first.

Thanks for all of your help. I ordered my tickets online the night before our check in. I picked them up when I checked in to RPR at 7 am. We got our express passes and our room was actually ready. We unpacked and were at IOA at 8 am. It went very smoothly which was great because it was DD's 16th birthday.

Thanks for reporting back. I'm sure it will help someone else.
