    Can I change the date of a special event ticket?

    Welcome to planDisney, Walter!

    This is such a great question. Special Event Tickets at Walt Disney World Resort are a great way to experience unique offerings in the parks and enjoy lower wait times for your favorite attractions. I am sad to report that Special Event Tickets are nontransferable and nonrefundable. This means that once you purchase a ticket, you will be unable to change the date. If your travel plans have changed, you can offer this ticket to a family or friend if they will be at Walt Disney World Resort during this time. You can do this by reassigning the ticket to any Guest linked to your My Disney Experience account

    You can reassign a ticket on the Walt Disney World website or through the My Disney Experience app. Making changes on the website begins with selecting the My Plans option from the My Disney Experience drop-down menu. Choose the Tickets, Passes, & Memory Maker tab to locate the Special Event Ticket. There will be a Reassign Ticket option, and you can select any Guest connected to your account. If you need to connect to this Guest first, you can easily do so in minutes

    Reassigning a ticket through the My Disney Experience app begins with the Tickets and Passes tile. Scroll through your linked tickets until you find the option that you wish to assign to another Guest. Click on the Reassign option to gift your ticket. 

    Should you find you cannot reassign the ticket, I recommend reaching out to a friendly Cast Member with Existing Tickets by phone. They may be able to help you with reassigning the ticket to another Guest. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that your magical itinerary doesn't require any changes and that you are able to attend the special event as planned!

    We hope to see ya real soon!
