    Hi. I purchased a 4 day ticket with plans to visit in September but our plans may need to change. Is that ticket still valid for another time?

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for stopping by to see us here at planDisney. 

    I think it's the nature of plans that plans change. When it comes to plans for visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, I feel one thing that won't change is the magic that will be there to experience when you do visit.

    When you purchased your theme park tickets, you likely chose the day that you initially planned to visit the theme parks. This selected start date is the ticket's first valid use date. Theme park tickets have a valid use timeframe based on the number of days on the ticket. For example, a 4-day ticket expires 7 days after the date you selected as your start date. The "Important Details" information that you see when you purchase theme park tickets will specify the timeframe as well as provide details for other Terms and Conditions.   

    You do have the ability to make changes to theme park tickets including changing the ticket dates. Typically, you can make changes up to midnight (Eastern Time) the day before your selected start date using your My Disney Experience account online or the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    With the current Terms and Conditions, Guests can apply the price paid for theme park tickets towards the purchase of new theme park tickets if their tickets are unused and expired. 

    Depending on how you think your plans might change, you might want to look at changing your ticket dates, or calling the Walt Disney World Resort ticketing team at (407)-566-4985 to discuss your options.

    One planning note you'll want to keep in mind is to check the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar for dates you might be looking to visit. You'll want to get an idea on reservation availability so you can make your  theme park reservations with the Disney Park Pass system.

    Jeff, here's wishing you a fun and wonderful visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, whether you visit for your originally planned travel dates or at a different time.

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
