How Long are Walt Disney World and Disneyland Tickets Good For?


Disneyland

Disneyland theme park tickets expire 14 days after their first use. Tickets that are not used within that 14-day period will expire and will not be accepted as valid admission.

Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has a completely different ticketing structure. Guests who purchase a 1-Day Ticket will only be able to use it on the start date they selected. Below is a breakdown of how long multi-day tickets are good for:

  • 2-Day Ticket – Any 2 days within 4 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 3-Day Ticket – Any 3 days within 5 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 4-Day Ticket – Any 4 days within 7 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 5-Day Ticket – Any 5 days within 8 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 6-Day Ticket – Any 6 days within 9 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 7-Day Ticket – Any 7 days within 10 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 8-Day Ticket – Any 8 days within 12 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 9-Day Ticket – Any 9 days within 13 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase
  • 10-Day Ticket – Any 10 days within 14 days beginning on the start date selected at the time of purchase

At an additional cost, Walt Disney World guests can purchase Flexible Date Tickets, which are similar to Disneyland’s ticketing structure and don’t expire until 14 days after their first use.

Before 2004, Disney sold a no-expiration option for tickets. Even though Disney does not sell this category of tickets anymore, the no expiration option tickets will still be honored as valid admission.

Active and retired U.S. military personnel can purchase Military Promotional Tickets. If you purchase Military tickets, be sure to check the expiration date and use them all before they expire.
