    Hello, I purchased Disneyland tickets one year ago and the park closed before our intended arrival at the end of March. I am wondering if I may exchange my Disneyland tickets for disneyworld tickets so that we may visit for my sons birthday (March 24).

    Hello Cori! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for bringing your question to us! 

    During these uncertain times, we’re all missing the magic of the Disneyland Resort. I’m sure your son would love to celebrate his birthday in March at “The Most Magical Place on Earth!” Unfortunately, your unused tickets may not be used at Walt Disney World in Florida. While Disneyland Park and Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom are similar in many ways, they are two different theme parks and are run independently. If you have your heart set on a Walt Disney World vacation, tickets can easily be purchased online or from the My Disney Experience mobile app. If you’d like some extra help call (407) WDISNEY (407-934-7639) to speak to a Walt Disney World vacation planning expert.  

    And, your Disneyland Resort tickets will not go to waste! That’s because unused single day tickets and wholly unused multi-day tickets are valid for a future visit through the end of the stated expiration date. But, there’s no need to worry if you are unable to visit before expiration. According to eTicket Terms & Conditions, unless otherwise stated, the amount paid for any wholly unused, expired Disneyland Resort theme park ticket (with the exception of Special Event Tickets) may be applied towards the purchase of a new theme park admission ticket at the current price. The new ticket purchase price must be equal to or greater than the amount paid for the original ticket. So, once the theme parks reopen and you’re ready to visit, simply go to a Main Entrance ticket booth a Cast Member will apply your eligible ticket amount towards a new ticket purchase.  

    I hope you are able to find a special way to celebrate your son’s birthday whether or not it’s at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Please head back to planDisney with your future question! We’re all EARS!
