    We are going to WDW in Aug for Free Dining! As we are Annual Passholders, we bought 2-day tickets in order to get the promotion. Please confirm that our tickets will not be considered used until the next time we buy tickets or passes in 2017. Thanks!

    Hi, Corinne!

    So happy to see you back at Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Heading to Walt Disney World during something as special as free dining is a fantastic plan. Enjoy every magical morsel!

    Regarding multiple tickets/ticket types, I asked a similar question recently upon entering Epcot using my MagicBand. At that time, I had a three day theme park ticket with both the Park Hopper Option and Water Park Fun & More Option as well as an Annual Pass that I had linked to My Disney Experience/MagicBand. I wondered which pass would be used for admission, since I did not want the three day ticket used when my Annual Pass was still valid.

    The Cast Member assisting me explained that passes are prioritized in My Disney Experience, so that if you are entering a park during a time in which your Annual Pass is valid, that is the pass that will be used. If you are entering a park on a pass with blackout dates, and you happen to be there during the blackout period, the system will use a different ticket, should you have one available in My Disney Experience.

    For peace of mind, though, you can certainly check with a Cast Member as you enter a park. Confirming that all has worked as it should will help you enjoy your day knowing that there's more magic to come on your your next trip!

    Happy planning, Corinne!

    Send more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
