    Hello, I have a 5 day world hopper ticket from 1994 with no expiration date. It has my maiden name on it. I read that I can use it, but what identification would I need to show at the gate for admission?

    Heigh-Ho John,

    Well, now that’s a Ticket Old As Time. A couple of things have changed since 1994, music, clothes, bad hair and most important is Guests must make a Disney Park Pass reservation to enter any of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Currently, you are unable to just walk up and enter a theme park without having a reservation. 

    Before reaching out to a Cast Member, and if you have not already done so, I recommend creating a My Disney Experience profile. Once your ticket inquiry has been reviewed a Cast Member can link it to your My Disney Experience.  Here you are able to make a Disney Park Pass Reservation along with many other Walt Disney World vacation planning options. Download the mobile app for more features to be used during your planning process and while you are visiting. 

    While you are able to email your question to Guest Relations, I recommend in your case speaking to a Cast Member by calling (407) 566-4985. I think verbal communication is key here to explain your ticket inquiry. Have your Ticket ID Number accessible. Currently, Cast Members are handling a high call volume. I suggest calling at 7:00 a.m. when phone lines open and a Cast Member will happily assist.

    After everything has worked out take a look at the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar for the dates you are interested in. Availability is limited and not guaranteed until you have completed your Disney Park Reservation. You are able to modify/cancel your Disney Park Pass reservation through your My Disney Experience web profile and mobile app. 

    I hope this helps and as you continue to plan your Walt Disney World vacation feel free to reach out to us for any magical and fun inquiries you may have. 

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.

Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
