    How long are Disney world base tickets good for from start date

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicholas! Thank you for bringing us your question about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World! 

    On October 16, 2018, Disney launched a new ticket system. Theme park tickets purchased after that date are valid for admission beginning on the selected start date and must be used within the valid use period provided at the time of purchase. Here are the details:

    1-day – The ticket expires on the selected start date.
    2-day – The ticket expires 4 days after the selected start date.
    3-day – The ticket expires 5 days after the selected start date.
    4-day – The ticket expires 7 days after the selected start date.
    5-day – The ticket expires 8 days after the selected start date.
    6-day – The ticket expires 9 days after the selected start date.
    7-day – The ticket expires 10 days after the selected start date.
    8-day – The ticket expires 12 days after the selected start date.
    9-day – The ticket expires 13 days after the selected start date.
    10-day – The ticket expires 14 days after the selected start date.

    For example, a 6-day base ticket with a start date of November 1 is valid any 6 days from November 1 to November 9.

    If you are staying at a Disney resort hotel, and your tickets were purchased as part of a package, then they are valid throughout your stay, from check-in until check-out or based on the times outlined above (whichever lasts longer). If you would like to have greater flexibility with your dates, you can purchase the Flexible Dates option and enjoy its convenience. 

    Nicholas, I hope this information is helpful. I wish you and your family a wonderful trip. Please come back with more questions, as you plan your vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. We love to help!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
