    We are planning a vacation, 17 people. We are purchasing 4 day passes for this trip. If everyone cannot use their 4 days in the allotted time, no I hear we can use the credit for another ticket. Does that credit have an expiry? Will it be good for 1-2 yrs?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sharon! It's a pleasure to have you here.

    Wow, 17 people! That is going to be one incredible vacation. I love it when a whole big group of people come together at the Most Magical Place on Earth. I say it all the time, but there truly is something for everyone at the resort. There are the classics in Fantasyland like "it's a small world" and the brand-new thrills like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT...and pretty much everything in between. Everyone will find something that speaks to them and something that speaks to the group as a whole.

    At this time, a wholly unused ticket's value can be applied toward a future ticket purchase. This value currently does not expire. However, the value of a partially used ticket will expire according to the expiration timeline. For example, a 4-day ticket will expire 7 days after the start date of the ticket. So, if part of the ticket is unused, it will expire according to the timeline, and its value cannot be refunded or applied to a new ticket purchase. However, I confirmed with a friendly Cast Member that a prorated amount can be applied toward the purchase of an Annual Pass (subject to availability) if it's done in person at the Walt Disney World Resort before it expires. It cannot be applied to any other type of ticket. My advice would be only to purchase ticket lengths that you know each person will use, even if it means that everyone purchases different lengths of tickets.

    You're coming to the resort at the perfect time because the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will be taking place from August 29, 2024 to November 23, 2024. While we've only gotten a little taste of what will be offered this year when the Disney Parks Blog announced the dates, it was enough to get me excited and whet my appetite. This is the original festival, and some would say the best. I'm especially excited this year because the transformation of this incredible park is now complete and I can't wait to see what festival offerings will be inside of CommuniCore Hall and Plaza! I think this is going to really elevate this already incredible festival to a whole new level! Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more announcements leading up to your trip.

    If you have any other questions about your big September trip, I'd happily answer them!
