HDDR what time to arrive

We have ADRs for the 6:15 show, we are a party of 6 and will need to go to the window and pick up and pay for tickets. What time should we arrive? What time do they begin seating?

1) I am confused - HDDR tix are paid in-advance
2) You can pick them up 7-days in advance if you like
. . . any Guest Service desk at a park or DTD
. . . any concierge desk at a resort
3) If you insist upon doing it prior to show, arrive before 5:45pm.

I reserved 6 tickets with my DDP however 2 in our party dont have DDP and will be paying OOP with a TIW. They are also staying offsite. I assumed that it would be easiest to just do this at Pioneer Hall before seating.

Would I be able to pick them up at our concierge? If so they can meet us at our hotel (we are staying onsite) and we can do it a day or two before the show.

At the venue, they should tell the server they are not using dining credits but cash with the TIW discount. You would still pick up all 6 tickets in advance with your resort concierge.

I'm sorry, now I'm confused. Won't they charge my dining credits when I pick up my tickets?

Yes. When you pick up the tickets, they will charge your dining plan. They will have you sign for them, and will give you a receipt showing the deduction. At least, that's how it's been when I've done it. So if you can't coordinate to meet up and have the OOP payers pay ahead of time, you should do it at the window at the HDDR.

If that's the case, then I guess my suggestion won't work. It never occurred to me that they charge your dining plan when you pickup your tickets. But the way I described is how it works at other prepaid venues, like CRT.

Yeah, I don't know why they do it that way for sure, but I have a theory....there's so much going on at the show, between the photographers, and having to get everyone seated so quickly so that they can get the show and dinner going, I figure it's much easier for them to just collect the tickets than to actually have them deal with payment. That way they can rush everyone out at the same time and prepare for the next show.

At places like CRT, not everyone sits down and then leaves at the same time, so it's not the same necessity I think.
