Disneyland Ticket Expiration Dates
Disneyland theme park tickets are usually valid for an extended period of time. For example, multi-day tickets purchased in now are valid for first time use through January 12, 2023.
However, once your ticket is activated by entering the parks, you must completely use your ticket within 13 days of first use.
You can find your Disneyland ticket expiration date at the bottom right corner of your printed ticket. For electronic tickets, you can see the expiration date in the fine print on the actual electronic ticket themselves—but keep reading because those dates may have been extended!

SoCal Disneyland Ticket Expirations
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.
If your ticket was wholly unused, contact Disneyland about how to upgrade to a valid ticket by paying the fare difference.
Canadian/Aussie/NZ Disneyland Expiration
Continued changes in border openings and closures keeps this section evolving.
- If you purchased a promotional 2020 Canada Resident Ticket or Australia/New Zealand Resident Ticket, and have not used it, the expiration date will be extended through December 15, 2022, and the ticket will expire 13 days after first use or December 15, 2022 whichever occurs first. Guests who made their first visit between February 28 and March 13, 2020, but did not reach their ticket’s maximum number of uses, will have the 13-day expiration period of their promotional tickets extended to December 15, 2022.
- Expiration dates on eligible 2020 Canada Resident Tickets and Australia/New Zealand Resident Tickets will be updated and visible online via your Disney account now.
These tickets are no longer being sold, only those who have them can use the extension. Are these tickets refundable? Disneyland’s official policy is that no tickets are refundable. But we had quite the discussion about it in the Disneyland with Kids Facebook group. Read about others’ experience requesting a refund for their Canadian tickets.
Complimentary Ticket Extensions
Do you have complimentary tickets from Disneyland? These are sometimes used for charity auctions or otherwise given from Disney for various reasons. I’ve had a lot of questions about complimentary Disneyland Tickets. I’ve directed most of you to Disney itself.
Nicole M. from my Facebook group, Disneyland with Kids, was kind enough to report back. This may give others the direction they need to move forward with their Disneyland vacation.

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:
- the full value paid for the unused ticket can be applied toward the purchase of a new, non-expired ticket this even applies to special tickets like the Canadian discount, but keep reading for more info
- bring your unused ticket to any Disneyland Resort ticket booth window to exchange and make payment for a new, valid ticket
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.
Do I need to get a new ticket to use the extension?
Not usually. The ticket you hold now whether physical or digital is your valid park ticket. If the Disneyland App/account does not recognize it, please call Disneyland Resort at (714) 781-4636 for more information.
