    I have an 8 day base ticket dated 4/30-5/10/24. I can no longer go due to an emergency, but hubs and son are. Can I put these toward a trip later this year and pay the difference? If so, how do I do it and still get new tickets for my party?

    Hi Jaynee -

    Welcome back to planDisney!  I'm thrilled you have trusted us with your vacation planning questions over the years and we're always happy to say "Welcome Home" to a friend!

    Jaynee, I'm sorry to hear that your vacation plans have changed and you won't be able to join your husband and son on your upcoming trip.  While Walt Disney World Resort park tickets are non-refundable, you may be able to change the dates of your unused tickets.  When you view your tickets in your My Disney Experience account, either from the website or the My Disney Experience Mobile App, you should see an option to modify your tickets.  You can select new dates to use your tickets, but as you previously mentioned, you would need to pay the difference if the dates you are visiting are more expensive.  Since your husband and your son are still visiting the parks, you can choose whether you want to do this just for your ticket, or for all of your tickets.  If you change the dates of all of your tickets, you can then purchase new tickets for your husband and son.  There are also Cast Members who can assist you by calling Existing Tickets if you run into any technical problems!  

    While your husband and son are visiting, you may want to remind them of all the wonderful things taking place at the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival.  I'm a bit of a foodie and love visiting the Outdoor Kitchens while I'm admiring the beautiful topiaries.  Then, as evening starts to set in, the American Gardens Theater comes to life with the Garden Rocks Concert Series featuring vibrant music from some amazing artists.  It's well worth the visit!  

    Jaynee, I hope this information is helpful and that you are able to make your return to Walt Disney World Resort very soon!  Please stop by to see us again at planDisney with any other vacation planning questions you have in the future!
