    Hi, I purchased 3-day tickets but may only be able to use 2 of the 3 tickets. When does the one unused ticket expire?

    Heigh-Ho Barbara,

    Welcome to planDisney, we are a panel of Guests with a wealth of Disney knowledge and Disney travel experience which we love sharing with our Fellow Guests. You have purchased your Walt Disney World tickets, made your Disney Park Pass reservations and are planning out your Practically Perfect itinerary with Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and/or Individual Lightning Lanes but have it a snafu, you may not be able to use all of your ticketed days. What now? 

    Guests who have purchased 3-day Walt Disney World tickets will have 5-days to use the entirety of their ticket from the selected start date. But, Barbara, if you know you will not be using your entire ticket I suggest, before entering your first Walt Disney World Theme Park, making your way to the Guest Relations/Ticket Counter located outside of all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks. With a little bit of Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust a Cast Member should be able to modify your ticket to a 2-day ticket and refund you the difference. Be sure to have the form of payment used on the original purchase and make sure your Disney Parks Pass reservations are still correct after the ticket is changed.  And Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo you are set to begin your Magical Days at Walt Disney World.

    Check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) and Panel Extras for more Vacation Planning Tips and stay up to date by following the Disney Parks Blog. We look forward to Welcoming You Home Real Soon and may your upcoming visit be filled with many magical and memorable moments.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.

Meet the Panelist: Amy, Virginia

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
