    When you buy one day park tickets when staying for a week, do you have to go to the parks consecutively or can you skip a day to relax at the resort?

    Hey there, Michaelle! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. 

    Michaelle, as a guest who loves to rest, relax and recharge at my Disney Resort Hotel, I love this question and am happy to chat with you about non-park days! First, with a standard, 1-park-per-day ticket, the quick answer is yes, you can use them on non-consecutive days. The number of days you have to use your tickets does depend on your ticket length, however. For example, if you are purchasing a 3-Day Ticket, you would have 5 days in which to use those tickets. So, let's say your family wanted your first park day to be on August 20th and you have purchased a 3-Day Ticket. You could visit any three days between August 20th and August 24th. In this scenario, you could visit a park every other day, with two rest days in between. You could visit two consecutive days with two rest days and then a final park day. Whatever combination is best for you! If you were to purchase a 4-Day Ticket, with a start date of August 20th, you could visit any 4 days until August 26th. My best advice is to visit THIS page and explore the ticket options to see what is the best fit for your traveling party.

    Michaelle, I hope this helps as you're dreaming about a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I love planning pool days where we can rest our feet after a long day in the parks and having time to explore many of the non-park options like shopping at Disney Springs! If you need any recommendations, or ideas or have additional questions, please come on back to your new pals here at planDisney. 

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted stay,
