Disneyland Ticket Expiration Dates

You can find your Disneyland ticket expiration date at the bottom right corner. For electronic tickets, like those purchased through my ticket partner, you can see the expiration date in the fine print on the actual electronic ticket themselves.

Do Disneyland tickets expire?

Yes, tickets do have an expiration date listed on your ticket. But many have extended expirations dates, so it’s actually the best time to buy lower priced tickets. Plus, if they ever drop—my ticket partner will adjust the price for you!

What if I don’t use my ticket before it expires?

If you don’t use your Disneyland ticket before it expires you can still use it with some restrictions. Here’s how it works:

 

Drive to Disneyland

 

What if I only use part of my ticket before it expires? 

If you have a 2,3, 5 or 10 day Disneyland ticket, you have 13 days from the first day of use to complete those additional days in the parks. Any unused days expire within 13 days from the first use. Keep reading if your ticket was left partially unused due to the temporary closure

What if I have a special events ticket or Disneyland After Dark ticket?

I am in that same boat. Currently no Disneyland After Dark events are affected by the closure. If things change or your Disneyland special event is affected by the temporary closure, you will receive a full refund within 30 days. There is no need to contact Disneyland directly.

Disneyland Ticket Expirations & Extensions

Disneyland Resort operations are halted; see the most up to date closure information here. That may also put a damper on your Disneyland tickets and vacations.

In light of the temporary closure, Disneyland Resort is making it easier than ever to reschedule your vacation. Here is the current expiration dates for tickets and Annual Passes

 

Unused Disneyland Ticket Extensions

Did you plan a Disneyland visit during the closure dates or want to postpone your trip? You can still use your Disneyland tickets for a future visit. 

 

Partially Used Disneyland Ticket Extensions

Multi-day Disneyland tickets offer the most value per-day, and many people need more than one day to experience all the magic (listen to the podcast: how many days do I need at Disneyland?).

Normally, all multi-day tickets must be used within 13 days of first use. But current health concerns could mean there was no possible way to complete those visits. 

If you used only some of your multi-day ticket with first use made between February 28th and March 13th your ticket is now valid until . . . Disney has yet to release info on this particular situation but has on other special tickets like SoCal, Spring Kids and more. I am hoping they’ll quickly realize they left this out. Hopefully it will be a similar policy to those listed below

 

SoCal Disneyland Ticket Extensions

SoCal Disneyland tickets offered each spring are incredible values for those living in Southern California. SoCal tickets, unlike other multi-day tickets do NOT have to be used within 13 days of first use. SoCal tickets can be used anytime through May 21, 2020 AND will be extended day by day as the park remains closed. 

 

Canadian/Aussie/New Zealand Disneyland Ticket Extension

If you have an unused ticket it must be used by May 31, 2021. If you have a partially used ticket from visits taking place between February 28th and March 13th, but did not use all the days, you now have until May 31, 2021 to use the remainder of your tickets. 

 

Spring Kid Disneyland Ticket Extension

Kids spring multi-day Disneyland tickets as low as $65 per day! It’s insane, but so is the health situation that has us all wondering . . . will the expiration date be extended? YES any unused Spring Kid Ticket is now valid through December 15, 2020. 

Under normal circumstances, all kids spring multi-day tickets must be used within 13 days of first use but the temporary closure might mean that there was no possible way to complete those visits if you began right before Disneyland closed. Updated Policy: If your first visit was in between February 28 and March 13th, you Spring Kid Ticket it is now valid through December 15, 2020.

Disneyland Annual Pass Extended Dates

On Friday March 13, 2020, Disneyland Annual Passholders received first word from Disney on extensions for their APs. It was a very pleasant email to get among the many other Coronavirus emails flooding my inbox. Here’s the Annual Passholders email in its entirety and keep reading for additional updates.

Dear Valued Annual Passholder:

As important members of our Disneyland Resort community, we want to provide you with an update regarding CV. We understand the concern you may have, as well as the increasing number of questions on how the situation will impact you.

While there have been no reported cases of CV at Disneyland Resort to date, after carefully reviewing the guidelines of the Governor of California’s executive order and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, beginning the morning of March 14, 2020, with the Parks currently scheduled to reopen on April 1, 2020. The Hotels of Disneyland Resort will remain open until Monday, March 16, 2020 to give guests the ability to make necessary travel arrangements; Downtown Disney will remain open at this time. We will monitor the ongoing situation and follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials and health agencies.

Given the necessary closure, all Annual Passholders who have Passports that are valid during the closure period, will have their Passport expiration date extended based on pass type and level of access due to the impacts of the closure. The extended date will be reflected on your Passport account prior to our reopening of the parks.

Annual Passholders on the monthly payment program will remain on the current payment schedule and continue to make their scheduled payments. These Annual Passholders will have their Passport expiration date extended based on pass type and level of access due to the impacts of the closure, and will not be required to make any payments during that extended period.

For Disney Flex Passholders, we will cancel reservations for the duration of the closure without penalty.

We appreciate your patience and consideration during this unprecedented time.

On April 2, 2020 Disney had further details. 

Annual Passes Paid in Full: Your AP will automatically be extended, your new expiration date will be shown in your account before the parks reopen. You may also opt to receive a partial refund on the unused portion of your AP, details to come at a later date. 

Annual Passes on Monthly Payment Plans: Effective April 5, 2020 all upcoming monthly payments will automatically cease for the duration of the closure. Any payments processed between March 14 and April 4, 2020 will be refunded. Payments will begin again on your original schedule once the parks reopen. As such, passports on the monthly plan will not be extended and will expire on the regular expiration date. An alternate postponing payment option is also available.

    When I checked Disney’s website the other day, I saw that they said multi-day unused tickets are good until Jan 2022 and so I screen-shotted that and was thrilled as we cant go back until March, 2021. Then I just saw the next day they added on if they are Canadian Resident discounted tickets they expire Jan 2021! We called Disney and they said, too bad but I think thats horrible that after I already checked and was so relieved they after the fact added on about the Canadian Discount tickets. What do you think the chances are that if I show up at the parks next year in March and ask them to extend them they will? I feel like that is horrible customer service to change what they originally put and on top of that have them expire a whole year earlier just because we got a discount. Would love to know your thoughts, thanks!

    • Hi Steph, Things are changing so quickly, as you noticed with your screenshot. I don’t know why it would have originally said one thing and then changed to another that was less generous. One important thing to note is any unused ticket can be redeemed at any time–you will not lose the value paid. That value will just be applied to a new ticket, so there may be a price difference. But if you are certain you will go in March 2021 or any time after it expires, I would write a kindly worded email explaining your situation and clearly ask for what you want as a resolution. You might also include the screenshot. I can’t say that will work, but I always prefer to have a written paper trail when navigating any customer service issues. Please let me know how I can help, if there’s anything I can do for hotels or anything else. I have plenty of resources here to help you choose the best time to go.

    We’re in the boat that Disney hasn’t addressed yet. We started our four day military salute park hopper tickets on March 11th. The day of closure, March 14th, would have been our fourth and final day. We stayed at the Grand Californian under the military rate, so we basically wasted a day/night there too, due to the closure. Looking forward to seeIng what info comes along for those like us.

    Any idea as to why Canadian ticket holders only get an extra 2.5 weeks to use their tickets ? We come the further distance and a pandemic . I booked last October for the only time we could come ,August, a pandemic hits and now what ?

    • I wish I had more insight into these decisions, I am sorry it is not as flexible as we’d like it to be. If the expiration date is extended again, you’ll find the updates in this article. Thank you so much for reading.
