Convention Tickets - How soon can I get in ?

We will be at Downtown Disney for a convention. Disney offered special rates and ticket options for guests of the convention. We chose a 2 day ticket with park hoppers for $188. The ticket is for 2pm till the parks close. I wondered if they will let us in a bit sooner. I know for MNSSHP and MVMCP the ticket is for a 6pm entry but you can really enter at 4pm. Has anyone used conference tickets and\or what time did they let you in?

We did in 2006 and it was always close to 4 when we got there and it was no problem to be about 15 - 30 minutes early. Might depend on the CM or could be totally different now with the magic bands...

I wouldn't expect to be able to get in before your ticket is actually good for. You can always give it a shot, but I wouldn't count on it.

I used the conference tickets in June 2013 and at that time, I was told that they were for 2:00 firm. As it turns out, we were delayed and didn't arrive until 2:30, so I can't confirm or deny that information.
