    If I purchase park admission separately from resort accommodations, can I purchase a 5-day base ticket with a start date of 6/24/2023 (valid through 7/1) and make resort reservations 6/26 to 7/2/2023 if I do not intend to use park admission until 6/27?

    Hi Timothy,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question!

    The answer is yes, you can totally book a separate five day, one Park per day ticket beginning on a certain date and not enter the Parks until a few days later. You’d be able to use your ticket for any days during that use period between June 24th through July 1st, so if that’s for the final five days of the ticket, go for it! You also don’t need to go to the Parks on consecutive days, so if you change your mind and want to go on June 26th then want to have a resort day, you still have four full days of use for that time period.

    Keep in mind that the ticket will expire on that final use day of the ticket. Tickets are non-refundable. After the expiration date of the ticket, only a fully unused ticket can be applied to a new ticket of equal or higher value. Once you scan into the Theme Parks, I suggest using the rest of your ticket before it expires! 

    When you purchase your ticket, remember that you need a Disney Park Pass for each day you’d like to go to the Theme Parks. You’ll need to book the same type of pass for each person in your party as well. You can check out the Theme Park Reservation calendar here to see which Parks are available for your trip. As you get closer to your trip, you may see the Parks “fill up”, so I suggest booking in advance so you can plan for the Parks you want to go to the most!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful in your planning process. If you have other vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
