    I currently have a 10 day no expiration ticket with only 1 day used( 9 remaining). However, going to WDW on the free dining plan and had to purchase tickets with package. How do I ensure that package tickets will be used & not the no expiration ticket?

    Hey, Donna!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. This is a fantastic question. I also have theme park No Expiration Option tickets which I am saving them for a special time. Here is what I do each visit to ensure the correct ticket is used. 

    First, I call (407-939-7523) ahead and speak with a Cast Member to PRIORITIZE my tickets in the order I want them. I have multiple tickets under my account and at each visit, I make sure that the No Expiration Option tickets are the last on my ticket list. Second, I arrive at the theme park 45 minutes early and head to the ticket counter to verify that the Cast Member on the phone PRIORITIZED the tickets in the order I requested. Call me overcautious but those No Expiration Option tickets are gold and are no longer offered. In addition to calling and theme park ticket counters, Guest Relations desks will also help PRIORITIZE your tickets. I have done this at Town Center in Disney Springs.

    Disney Dad Tip: Linking tickets is important for scheduling your FastPass+ reservations. Because you are staying on-property you may begin making FastPass+ reservations 60 days prior to your arrival date. There is nothing better than skipping the lines on attractions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Frozen Ever After which have very long wait times.

    Donna, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
