Will call vs printing out tickets

Looks like my choices for US/IOA $99 passes are will call or print - any difference with them? With the printed tickets can I just get right in? Trying to avoid long lines on the first day - which ticket is best

And why in the world do they charge a process fee for me to print them on my own printer?!

The print at home tickets would be a sheet of paper which a lot of people don't like to carry around. The Will Call tickets will be the regular sized tickets. If you went with the Will Call tickets, you would have to wait in the lines outside the park to get the tickets and then go to the gate. Print at home would allow you to go right in. I would get the electronic pickup option myself. You would need your confirmation # and the credit card used. You simply go to the electronic kiosk outside of either park and enter the information. There is rarely a line and the regular sized tickets will print out right there and you're off.

Voted will call, the stations are rarely occupied to the point where a line forms.

I think the options for picking up tickets include print at home or Will Call Kiosk. The Will Call Kiosk are the electronic ticket booths which usually never have a line.

I didn't know anything about the electronic option! Thanks, placed my order for tickets today.

I am getting really excited. We are at 30 days out now! Just paid off the condo, ordered the water park tickets and now ordered the US/IOA tickets.

Can't wait!

I love the electronic kiosk option. We did it last year several times with HHN Express passes.
