Can an old child’s ticket be used for an adult?

From Jill in Cleveland. Can our one-day children’s pass now be used on the same person who is now an adult?


Hey, Jill. That’s a really good question. Let me tell you what your answer is.


Music from Queen – “No, No, No, No, No, No, No!”


Let me try that again. Did you hear that? Let me turn it up a little bit and try it again just to make sure. Let’s do this.


Music from Queen – “No, No, No, No, No, No, No!”


No. It’s just not the way it works. Disney’s children’s tickets have to be used for children ages three through nine. It’s their policy. It’s just the way it is. Once they turn 10, that children’s ticket will not work. Yes, I know. They use their finger thing, but it’s not the way the ticket works. Children three through nine are the only ones that can use those children’s tickets.


What you could do is you could take it to a Disney ticket booth or a concierge desk at a hotel, and you could ask them to upgrade that ticket to an adult ticket. You will have to pay the difference in price, but at least that ticket doesn’t go to waste. Go ask for that ticket to be upgraded to an adult ticket, and you can still get some use out of it.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Unfortunately, the bottom line, Dad’s bottom line is no, you can’t use a child’s ticket for an adult even though it’s tied to them, and you bought it for them. It just doesn’t work. That’s not the way the Disney ticket system works.
