    Hello, My family and I are visiting in April 2017. What are blackout dates? Do we need to worry about block-out dates if we are buying a 10 day pass? If we purchase a 10 day pass, how long do we get to use those 10 days? Do you have to go consecutively?

    Hi Jodie!

    April is just around the corner and I am so excited for your amazing 10-day Walt Disney World vacation coming up. So fun! If you are planning to purchase a regular Magic Your Way Park Admission Ticket, you should have no problem with blockout dates. Typically dates are only restricted for special passes such as Annual Passes, Cast Member Passes, etc. If your tickets are regular Magic Your Way Tickets that you purchase online or at the ticket counters outside the Theme Parks, you will not have any blockout dates to worry about.

    As far as using your tickets, you do not have to visit the Parks on consecutive days. After the first day you use your ticket you have 14 days to use it up. For example, if you visit a Park on your first day, you can spread the remaining 9 days that are left on that ticket over the next 13 days. If your family is like mine, though, you might find that you love being in the Parks so much, you use every day on your Park Admission Ticket right in a row. By the way, have you taken a minute to choose your FastPasses before you arrive? You will need to create a My Disney Experience Account and add every element of your trip as you plan it--Park Admission Tickets, Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, MagicBands, Advanced Dining Reservations and more! You can then choose FastPasses up to 60 days ahead (if you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel) and 30 days ahead if you are staying somewhere else. I would highly recommend making as many of these plans as possible ahead of time. If you need any help, please come back to see us!

    Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
