    What happens if I don't use my fifth day 3 persons walt disney tickets that I already did the reservation, do I have to cancel it and can I use it another time?

    Hello Juan!

    Welcome to planDisney! Theme park tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort are valid for a specific number of days, based on the number of park days purchased. In addition to the number of theme park days the ticket is valid for, to help with Covid-19 safety you must make a Disney Park Pass Reservation. All of these things tend to sound similar and it can get confusing.

    It’s important to know that there are Theme Park Tickets and Disney Park Pass Reservations and these are different things, although you need both of them to enter a theme park. Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets are purchased, and expire after a specific number of days. For a 5-Day Theme Park Ticket, any unused days will expire 8 days after the selected start date. If you only used 4 of these days, after the 8th day your last park day will have expired and you will not be able to use it.

    Disney Park Pass Reservations are complimentary, and are where you use your purchased Theme Park Ticket to make a reservation to enter a particular theme park on a specific day. You will need a Disney Park Reservation to enter a theme park, even if you have a valid ticket. This is designed to limit capacity at each park to safer levels.

    If your plans change, simply cancel your Disney Park Pass Reservation, and any remaining days left on your Multi-Day Theme Park Ticket are still valid, as long as you are still within your 8-day window. You can then make a different Disney Park Pass Reservation within that 8-day window. For example, if you still have 4 days left in your validity window, and you wake up to a rainstorm and would like to go to the parks tomorrow instead of today, you can cancel your Park Pass for today, and as long as there is availability for tomorrow, you can make a reservation for that day. You can also do this day of, as long as you haven’t entered a park with your ticket yet. If you wake up and want to go to Epcot instead of Magic Kingdom, you may cancel your Park Pass for Epcot and book one for Magic Kingdom, as long as there is availability.

    If you have a Disney Park Pass Reservation and simply don’t show up, your Theme Park Ticket is still valid as well. Though it would always be advised to cancel the Disney Park Pass Reservation if you aren’t going to use it so that it becomes available for another Guest who may want it.

    I hope this helps you understand how Theme Park Tickets and Park Pass Reservations work for your upcoming visit, Juan. Please let us know if you have additional questions, we are here to help!
