    Thank you for answering my previous question about trip cancellation and park tickets. If I understand correctly, park tickets purchased separately outside of a package will not expire until after the first day they are finally used? Once my trip is over?

    Hiya Corrine!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for including us in your magical vacation! I am glad we were able to help you in the past and that we can continue assisting you during your planning process. I don't know about you, Corrine, but I sometimes feel like the planning process is almost just as magical as the vacation itself!

    The expiration date of your theme park tickets depends on the length of stay you picked. For instance, if you purchased a one-day theme park ticket, the ticket would obviously expire after its use. However, a two-day theme park ticket will expire four days after the selected start date, so you do not have to use both days consecutively. The expiration dates vary according to the length of stay, so you can consult the complete list of expiration dates online. If you do not end up using your theme park tickets on the date selected, however, you can either ask a Cast Member to modify it for you or simply have a credit applied to your next purchase of theme park tickets.

    One of my favourite things about the Disney theme parks is that you can also use your theme park tickets in the way that best fits your needs. For example, you can request a card to scan your ticket, but you can also now use your Apple Watch, iPhone or Google Pay-enabled Android smartphone as part of the Disney MagicMobile service. If you would rather not have your phone in your hands at all times, you can also purchase a MagicBand to scan your theme park ticket. The brand new MagicBand+ even includes exciting new features and fun games to play around the theme parks, so I highly recommend you try them on your next vacation!

    I hope this was helpful, Corrine, and that you will have the most magical vacation ever on your next Walt Disney World Resort trip. If you have any other questions while planning your vacation, please don't hesitate to reach back out. It is always an honour to help you create magical memories that will last a lifetime!

    Have a magical day,
