    When I choose my “first day” of a multi-day ticket, do I have to use the first day ticket on that exact date? Or just use all of them during the validate ticket window? Just want to make sure the current policy for 2021 holiday season...Thank you.

    Hi Tsuwei,

    Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for bringing us your question about purchasing tickets! I hope you're having a BLAST dreaming about all of the magic and fun you'll enjoy during your Walt Disney World Resort adventure!

    When purchasing tickets, you'll notice that the price can vary based on the start date of the tickets. It's possible to stretch your Disney dollars a bit if you choose a start date that's earlier than you plan to arrive, and yes, it's fine if you do that. You're exactly right that the important part is that you plan all of your theme park days prior to the expiration date on your ticket. Please don't forget to make Disney Park Pass reservations for each day you plan to visit the parks, too, as you won't be allowed to enter the parks without them. If you are purchasing Park Hopper Option tickets, you'll only need to make a reservation for the first park you plan on visiting each day, then you'll be able to hop around, pending any capacity limitations, beginning at 2:00 PM each day.

    We're so glad you came to see us here at planDisney, Tsuwei, and we hope you'll stop by again if you have any other questions as you're planning your visit. I'm sending pixie dust that you have a truly magical vacation this holiday season!
