    Hi, so my husband and I went to Disney world a few years ago and had 3 days on our ticket cards I am wondering if those expired or if they are still good to use in Disney land?

    Hi there, Morgan! Welcome to planDisney!

    You've come to the right place! I am a frequent visitor of both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, so I just may be able to point you in the right direction.

    Morgan, the ticketing differences at these two Disney locations just might drive you mad. But.. "we're all mad here," right? The key piece of the puzzle here is that the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort, though both Disney Parks, are two entirely separate entities. Therefore, tickets from one location cannot be used at the other. If you're planning a Disney Vacation on the West Coast, you'll need to purchase valid Disneyland Resort tickets ahead of your visit.

    Though I am not sure of the details of your specific tickets, I do know that Walt Disney World will honor all non-expired theme park tickets with days remaining on them. However, most tickets purchased within the last few years do have a specific expiration date. If this is the case, you likely won't see the tickets in your My Disney Experience Account. If you take after our good friend White Rabbit, there is no need to panic here at the thought of being late! There are friendly, knowledgeable Cast Members standing by to help you find the expiration date and usability of your specific ticket. You can call a Cast Member directly at the Existing Tickets Line to help uncover this elusive information.

    No matter which of the Disney Parks you choose to visit next time around, I'm sure your trip will still be a dream come true. I love visiting both coasts and spotting the similarities and differences between The Happiest Place on Earth and The Most Magical Place on Earth! Some attractions have slight differences, like Space Mountain and the iconic castles. Others provide that same Disney magic, like my kids' favorite, Mad Tea Party. While I consider myself more of a Queen of Hearts type, I can never resist the opportunity to see the smiles on my kids' faces as they spin uncontrollably in circles! 

    Morgan, I once heard that "curiosity often leads to trouble." But when it comes to a Disney Vacation, curiosity more often leads to memories that will last a lifetime! I hope you have a magical stay!
