    I purchased my tickets through AAA for our upcoming trip at the end of March. Do they expire 14 days from when i purchased them or does the 14 days start from the first day i use them at a Disney park? I am worried they wont be good when we get there.

    Hi Bethany,

    Not to worry - unused days expire 14 days after your ticket is activated, which is the first day a park is visited - not the date you purchased them.

    A nice thing about Disney's Magic Your Way ticket program is that you can customize your tickets to best suit your needs for your visit.  If your tickets are base tickets, they allow you to visit one park per day - you can come and go to that park as much as you'd like during the day. Keep in mind that if you visit another park in the same day and do not have the park hopper option, you will use another day of your tickets.

    You can add the park hopper option for an additional charge which allows you to go between as many of the parks on a given day as you'd like.  Currently the additional charge is $52 regardless of the number of days on your tickets (keep in mind that this is always subject to change and you should check the Disney World website for current ticket prices).

    The no expiration date option allows you to purchase up to 10 days on your ticket and use them whenever you like - this option also carries an additional charge on top of a base ticket.  Its more of an investment up front but saves you money in the long run. The longer you stay - the less you pay.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-)
