    If a purchase a 4-day ticket and are able to only use 3 tickets (go 3 days to the parks) and the 1 ticket remaining expires, so I get a credit for the value of the unused ticket towards the purchase of a new ticket at a later date?

    Hi there, Sandra!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question about Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! I'm excited to hear that you're considering visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth, Sandra. I'm here to help you make the most of your time in the theme parks!

    When a Guest purchases a 4-day theme park ticket, they will select a start date for their ticket. For a 4-day ticket, they'll have a 7-day window to use those tickets, beginning on the selected start date, and the tickets can be used on non-consecutive days! At the end of that 7-day window, any unused entitlements expire. At that time, any remaining admission entitlements will be lost, and will not be eligible for future credit. However, if a wholly unused theme park ticket expires before its first use, the original value paid for that ticket may be applied toward the purchase of a new, unexpired ticket.

    Sandra, if you're unsure about spending four days in the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, I recommend purchasing a 3-day ticket for now. You'll have the option to add additional days to your existing tickets at a later date, as long as your tickets still have admission entitlements remaining. (My friend and fellow panelist, Matt, recently explained the process for adding additional days to a ticket to another Guest!) Sandra, if you decide to add days to your existing ticket, you'll be responsible for the difference in price between a 3-day ticket and a 4-day ticket at the time of upgrade. However, this will ensure that a ticketed day won't go to waste!

    To enter a Walt Disney World Resort theme park, a Guest must have both valid theme park admission and theme park reservations for the day they plan to visit, so don't forget to make theme park reservations for your visit once you've purchased your tickets. Sandra, I hope that you've found this information helpful. I'm wishing you a magical and memorable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any more questions, you're always welcome to stop back by planDisney anytime. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
