Dad’s no, you can’t Answer


For all of the wonderful customer service that Disney offers, there are a few seemingly simple options that are lacking. Magic Your Way Tickets are a great example of this – you can buy them online, but you can’t check your remaining days online. You have go physically to a park to verify your valid dates. No, you can’t even call. Then again, maybe there is a simple answer – most tickets nowadays expire within 2 weeks of their first use.


(Oddly enough, you could check them at the Disney Store until about 3 years ago.)


Over the years, tickets at Walt Disney World have undergone a series of changes. At first, guests paid a separate entrance fee and bought books of attraction tickets. Eventually the modern attractions-included tickets were introduced, and finally Park Hopper tickets were added as parks expanded beyond the Magic Kingdom.


Back in the day, your multi-day passes were good forever until you had used up all the days of admission that you purchased. But a few years ago, Disney made a big change: now Magic Your Way park tickets – including Park Hopper passes – expire within 14 days of the first date of use. That means you can’t simply buy a multi-day ticket and use it throughout the year, you have only 2 weeks maximum before it expires.


There is the option to add “No Expiration” onto your Magic Your Way tickets, but it’s costly and generally doesn’t make much sense to purchase.


If you have passes from 2005 or earlier with days remaining, make sure to take them along. They are still good and you can look at them and see how many days are left.

Dad’s Bottom Line


There’s no way to check your remaining ticket entry balance on line or even by phone – you’ll have to go in person to find out if you have any days left on your tickets, but if the tickets are older than 2 weeks and you don’t have the No Expiration option, the answer is simple: your passes are probably void.

May 17, 2019 4 Day Park Hopper from 2000
by: Anonymous I just found my (2) 4 day park hopper tickets that my husband and I used in 2000. We’re thinking we only used them for 2 days….I called the number, they said I had to email guest services. I just want to know if I still have 2 days on them and if I can add it to my existing ticket package which now includes my 2 kids. So maybe I just need to add 2 park hopper options to my kids tickets….or get an additional day pass ticket for my kids. Our current package is 2 days (1 park per day) and can only be used within 4 day time period.

It depends on when you bought it. The best thing to do would be to call Disney and check it out. Their number is (407) 566-4985.

Oct 10, 2018 Remaining days on tickets
by: Tanya You can check remaining days on your tickets if you have the “my Disney experience”app. As long as you link up your tickets to your account you will be able to see how many days are remaining.

Jul 02, 2018 Benefit to buying “no expiration”
by: Annette A great benefit to purchasing the no expiration up grade is…If buying for a child at the child price, the unused days on that child ticket can still be used when adult admission price applies!! That is a wonderful money saver.

If only you could. Disney no longer offers the no expiration option.
