    This may be a silly question, but if I buy tickets from a discount website will they have a different expiration policy or will they be the same as ones bought direct from WDW (meaning they don't start to expire until the first use, then 14 days after)?

    Hi Erin!

         Trust me girlfriend, that is NOT a silly question!  That is a perfectly reasonable concern and I am so glad that you asked.  All Walt Disney World tickets, regardless of where they are purchased, will expire 14 days after they are first used.  Of course, unless you have purchased the No Expiration option.  You are correct, the 14 day "countdown" won't begin until you enter the gates of the most magical place on Earth! 

         Just be careful, there are some not so reputable dealers out there and I would hate to see you scammed.  If you are unsure about your tickets, I would visit and see if the website that you are interested in is listed as one of the good guys.  In all honesty, you won't save more than a few bucks no matter where you purchase them.  Have a wonderful vacation and keep those questions coming!

    Much pixie dust,
