My DH, DD and I are going during Thanksgiving. Also, my DMIL, DFIL and DM are coming too. Yippee! My threesome will be up and eager to hit the EE days, yet the others will definitely not be. They will probably get to the parks near lunchtime. My question is, when you get the 1 EE with a 3 day hopper, does that come as a magnetic strip on the back of your hopper or is there a separate paper ticket to exchange at the ticket gates. Since we are staying offsite to accomodate my mom's finances, she wants us to have her EE. We were booked at the DLH to take advantage of EE, yet now we're off-site since mom can't afford it. So, can one of us use her EE? Perhaps if we can do this, my DILs will cough theirs up too. And, no we really can't stay at the DLH while she's on Harbor Blvd, since she's disabled and I'd feel much more comfortable staying at the same hotel in case she needs help getting around. Thanks for your advice.
