    Hi! Can anyone tell me what this means? "tickets must be used within 14 days of first use". I am looking at 4 day ticket options, but I am not clear on whether the price will go up if I don't purchase now.

    Hi Alyssa!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am happy to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. When you purchase your theme park tickets, they will expire 14 days after you first use them at a theme park entry gate. For my family, we like to plan rest days during our vacation where we don't go into a theme park and take time to enjoy the recreation activities at our Walt Disney World Resort hotel and Disney Springs. So for a seven day trip, we will often by a five or six day ticket. Theme park tickets give you flexibility in how you plan your vacation so you can plan days away from the parks as long as you use all of the days on your ticket package within 14 days of your first day in the theme park!

    The expiration period begins when your ticket is first used for theme park entry. So you are welcome to purchase your tickets now and keep them until you are ready to use them for your trip. Ticket prices are always subject to change, so this is a great way to lock in your price and pay for some of your vacation expenses in advance of your vacation. If you purchase your tickets directly from Walt Disney World Resort, they will be automatically be linked to your My Disney Experience account so you will be all ready to begin making your FastPass+ reservations when your window opens.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
