    My husband and I each have a 1-day WDW park tickets w/ park-hopper from our '06 vacation when we purchased non-expiring passes. We have 2 kids (ages 12 & 13 at time of travel) so how can we buy the kids tickets for that 1 day?

    Hello Gina!

    Welcome to planDisney! How fun that you still have non-expiry tickets from 2006! My parents are holding onto a few of those older tickets as well, and they are still valid! Now that you have kids in the picture, it sounds like the perfect time for a family visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Gina, you should be able to purchase each of your children a Disney Theme Park Ticket online. All Guests ages 10 and up are what I call “Disney adults” and you will simply purchase two adult one-day tickets, and link them to each child. To do this, sign in to your My Disney Experience Account, or create one if you haven’t already. Under Family & Friends, you’ll want to add each child to your account as a Guest you will manage. For fun, let each kid pick their own avatar! (Mine is Snow White.) Then purchase your tickets through your My Disney Experience account.  You’ll be able to assign each of those tickets to the corresponding kiddo.

    If you and your husband’s one-day tickets are already linked to your My Disney Experience Account, you should all be able to make Disney Park Pass Reservations for the day you wish to visit. If you are holding a physical ticket at home, you can attempt to link it to your My Disney Experience Account. If you are unable to link that ticket online, try calling Ticketing for further assistance. They may be able to help you over the phone, or if your ticket type is too old to do that, they will give you instructions for converting your tickets in person, once you arrive.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Gina! And since it has been a long time since your last visit, be sure to send us any additional questions you have. A lot has changed since 2006, and we are here to help!

    Have a Magical Day!
