    How far in advance do I need to cancel my tickets to Disneyland and how long do I have to use them?

    Hi Mary,

    Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally golly, what a day! And what a day to plan a visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    You ask a great question about ticket cancellation and ticket expiration. Here's how I would suggest thinking about your question.

    Because Disneyland Resort theme park tickets are nonrefundable, they aren't tickets you would cancel. Tickets do, however, come with a timeframe for which they are valid for use.

    For example, if you were to purchase a one-day theme park ticket today, it would be valid through December 30, 2022. If you were to purchase a multi-day ticket, it would be valid for 13 days from the first day you use the ticket, or valid until January 12, 2023 -- whichever comes first. If it happens that the ticket you purchased expires before you use it, the amount you paid for that ticket can be applied to the purchase of a new ticket.

    It's helpful to know that there are two key things you'll need for theme park entry: a valid theme park ticket and a valid theme park reservation. Both the theme park ticket and the theme park reservation must be valid for the same dates.

    The theme park reservation itself, unlike the theme park ticket, can be cancelled. You can use your "My Theme Park Reservations" page in your Disney account to do this. 

    So, if you purchase a theme park ticket and make a theme park reservation, and find that your plans change, you easily can cancel the theme park reservation. You can then make a new theme park reservation for a date you'd like to visit the theme parks. You can use the Theme Park Tickets & Reservations page to do this.

    Keep in mind that theme park reservations are subject to availability. You can check out the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar to see when the theme parks have reservation dates that you can select.

    Mary, I hope this information is helpful. When it comes to planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort, I always encourage Guests to follow the Disney Parks Blog. It's a fun and informative resource to help you stay up to date. I also encourage checking out all the Resort and theme park updates so that you can stay informed. And of course, be sure to come back to see us here at planDisney and ask us any questions that can help you with your planning.

    Mary, I hope you enjoy a great visit filled with lots of Disney magic!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
