    I have a metal Epcot Center special edition commemorative ticket issued in October 1982 it is a 3 day world adventure ticket. I was told when I showed it to a friend that these tickets are supposed to be good forever. Could this be true?

    Hi Sara, 

    Unfortunately there's no way to really tell if your ticket is valid for admission unless you bring it to Walt Disney World. 

    Disney World theme park tickets purchase prior to 2005 did not expire until used. It's certainly possible that a 1982 admission ticket could be used to get into the parks today. 

    However, given that you're saying it's a metal ticket, that implies to me that it was a souvenir replica ticket rather than an actual park admission. 

    To determine the value of your item, you should bring it to a ticket window or Guest Relations office at Walt Disney World. They have many resources to determine the value and validity of old tickets. If your ticket is valid, you can trade it in for a current park admission ticket, or apply its value to a more comprehensive ticket (more days, etc.)

    On the other hand, it sounds like your ticket is quite a unique item. You may want to check sites like eBay to see if it has any collector's value or consider whether you want to hold on to it as a keepsake. 

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We're happy to help.
