    We will be getting a 5 day ticket. Once we pick the start date, how many days do we have to use the tickets. We don't want to be in the parks for 5 days straight and want to have down days.

    Hi Leslie,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your great question.  As a Mom of 4 kiddos, I know the value of planning "FOTFT" (feet-off-the-floor-time) while on vacation.  And yes, my husband did make that silly acronym up but my whole family understands how valuable this is!  For our family vacations, we always make sure to plan for a couple of days of rest and relaxation outside of the theme parks.  We plan fun things like having a poolside day at our Disney Resort hotel or even spending an afternoon leisurely shopping and exploring all the things Disney Springs has to offer.

    You will be happy to know, currently with the purchase of  your 5 day Theme Park Tickets you have 8 days from its first usage to redeem your admissions.  Here is a link which details the Usage Dates of Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets.  You will notice that the longer the length of the ticket, the more days you will have to use them.  Also, another benefit for buying multi-day tickets is the ticket cost per day keeps dropping the longer the length of the ticket.

    Leslie, after you have linked your theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience account, be sure to make your Disney Park Pass Reservation for the theme parks you wish to visit on your selected days.  Currently Disney Park Pass reservations are able to be booked through September 26, 2021 based on your Disney Resort stay and ticket eligibility window.

    Have a Magical vacation Leslie and please come back and visit us again with any further Disney vacation planning questions.  We love to help!
