    Hi! We are planning to buy the 5 day military park tickets. Is it possible to split those days up between two trips. Like if we come to Disney for 3 days in May and then come back for 2 days in September? Thanks!

    Hi Karissa! Welcome to planDisney.

    As a military spouse, I would like to thank you for your family’s service to our country. My family is so grateful for the fantastic discounts offered to our military families visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, and we come back again and again because it’s truly our happy place. 

    One of the best perks (aside from the great price) of the military promotional theme park tickets is the flexibility. In my experience, we’ve always been able to partially use the tickets, and, as long as we return before the ticket expiration date, the remaining days on the ticket are still valid. So, in your case, if you purchase the 5-day military promotional ticket, you should be able to use three days in May and the remaining two in September. Note that the expiration date on this year’s military promotional theme park tickets is December 17, 2021, so you’ll need to use all days by then. I want to point out that the regular theme park tickets do not work this way; this is a great perk offered to provide extra flexibility for our military families.

    Once you purchase your tickets, be sure to make Disney Park Pass reservations for both trips, Karissa. You can check current theme park availability on this handy calendar, and some parks (particularly Disney’s Hollywood Studios) are filling up quickly. Since the military tickets come with the Park Hopper Option, you’ll only need to make a reservation for the first park you plan to visit each day. No reservations are needed for the subsequent parks you “hop” to once Park Hopper Hours begin on your visit day. If you’ve visited the Walt Disney World Resort before, Park Hopper is working slightly differently right now, so be sure to read the Park Hopper Option web page for the details.

    Have so much fun with your planning, Karissa! May and September are great times to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, and you’ll be able to experience the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival in May and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival in September. So much deliciousness!

    If you have any questions as you plan and dream, please come back and see us.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
