    We are coming through the Christmas holidays, in order to do the dining on our package we added the minimum two day base park tickets. Can we not use the tickets when we come and they not expire?

    Hi Amanda Beth,

    I see you will be celebrating the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting! It is my favorite time of the year to visit.

    Dining Plans are only available when you book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package. In general, they require a minimum of a 2-day Theme Park Ticket; however, there is a way to book a "ticketless" package that does not include them. It must be booked with a travel agent, or by speaking to a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936. Unfortunately, you cannot take advantage of any of the Special Offers Mickey has available, like a Free Dining, with these special packages.

    At this time, Theme Park Tickets do expire on December 31st of the following year that they were issued. This is great for planning a future vacation, and you will also be able to add additional days. Some Guests that visit frequently are able to upgrade them to an Annual Pass.

    One last tip: remember to book your dining right away. You can make reservations up to 180 days in advance at the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page. Happy planning!
