    I’m going to be in Orlando for 10 days. Im looking to buy a 5 day ticket and use 2 days at the beginning of my trip and 3 at the end. Is there anyway of extending the expiration?

    Heigh-Ho Denise,

    Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney, we are a panel of Guests with a wealth of Disney knowledge and Walt Disney World travel experience which we love sharing with our Fellow Guests. I love puzzles and your Walt Disney World ticket inquiry is one I find has a couple of answers. 

    First, the expiration of your Walt Disney World tickets depends on the number of days you purchased. Expiration begins on the select start date, meaning the day of your first Disney Park Pass reservation. While a 1-day ticket will expire on that start date a 3-day ticket will expire 5-days after the select start date and in your case, a 5-day ticket will expire 8-days after your select start date. So depending on when you plan to make your First and Last Disney Park Pass Reservations, as long as you have used the tickets within 8-days you will be fine. 

    But if you need to make Disney Park Pass reservations, at the very beginning of your stay and then at the very end of your stay, it makes more sense to purchase a 2-day ticket and then a 3-day ticket. I suggest sitting down with your 10-day calendar, checking the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar and putting down the days you would like to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Take a look at the Ticket Expiration dates and map out which Walt Disney World tickets will work best for you and your Practically Perfect visit. 

    I hope this helps, Denise, and if I can answer any other questions feel free to ask me. Check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) or Panel Extras for more vacation planning tips and may your visit be filled with many magical and memorable moments.
