    Hi! I bought tickets through Disney in 2017. At the time I didn't know when we will be visiting so I bought all adult tickets. Can my son (9) use one of the adult tickets, or do I have to buy child ticket if we want to visit this year? Thx!

    Hello Diana!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  It's always a pleasure to help out a returning Guest.   I am so excited you are planning another trip to central sunny Florida and the Walt Disney World Resort.   I know you are thrilled. 

    If you have not used your previously purchased Theme Park Tickets for entry you should be able to still use them.   A 9-year old can certainly use an adult ticket, but if you know you will be back again in the future it may be a better option to purchase him a child's ticket which would be cheaper and hang on to the adult ticket.  Whatever you decided to do it will not be a problem.   I have been given adult Walt Disney World tickets as a gift before and my little ones had no problem using them to gain entry to the Theme Parks.   You may get asked by the Cast Member working the gate if you are sure you want to use an adult ticket for him, but just tell them "yes you do."

    I hope this has helped, Diana.  Please let us know if we can help again in the future.
