You simply have your room key scanned as you enter the EP line either at the beginnng or further into the line depending on the ride. The EP queue is a separate to queue to the regular one and waits are usually much less than normal queue. You will need to show this to TM on entering the queue. You will need your room key if you are planning to take advantage of Early Entry offered to onsite resort guests. EE is one hour before regular guests are allowed in. **EP is a perk of staying at one of the qualifying hotels. Where you buy your park tickets has nothing to do with this and doesn't affect EP in any way** WILL CALL FOR ATTRACTION TICKETS Will Call is adjacent to check in desk area.
