If you’ve had a Disneyland ticket sitting around for a while, you may very well be wondering if you can still use that ticket at the park.
Usually, you can check if your Disneyland ticket is still valid by looking at the expiration date. However, some tickets have other conditions that determine validity. For example, a multiday ticket expires 13 days after its first use, even if the expiration date has not yet passed.
Checking the Expiration Date on a Disneyland Ticket
Normally, it is pretty easy to check the expiration date on a Disneyland ticket.
If you have a printed ticket, you can usually find the expiration date in the bottom right corner on the front of the ticket.
For electronic tickets, conversely, you need to open the ticket and read its fine print to find the expiry date.
And remember that you should read the entire fine print because it may state that Disney has extended the ticket’s lifespan for one reason or another.
How to View Your Disneyland Ticket Online
Of course, to check the expiration date on an online ticket, you need to be able to view that ticket.
To see your e-ticket, you need to either navigate to your ticket confirmation page or the confirmation email that you should have received when you bought the ticket online.
Here, you will see a link to your ticket, where you can view its fine print to find the expiration date.
Validity Rules for Multiday Disneyland Tickets
The validity rules concerning multiday Disneyland tickets are a little different if you already used the ticket.
Basically, when you use your ticket, you have 13 days after the first usage to enter the park with that ticket.
Once the 13 days are up, you can no longer use that ticket even if the expiration date has not yet passed.
What Can I Do With Expired Tickets?
You may automatically think that expired Disneyland tickets must be no good and are as good as trash.
However, you actually can still use expired tickets.
To do so, you first need to contact Disneyland.
You can do this by either going to Disneyland’s Guest Relations area in the resort or by calling Disneyland’s ticket line at (714) 781-4636.
From here, a representative will help you renew your ticket.
And keep in mind that since tickets usually expire at the end of the year that you purchased them, you will probably have to pay the difference in price for a new ticket.
What I mean is that if your ticket is from last year and the price for that ticket has gone up by $10, you will have to pay that $10 to renew your ticket.
Then, after you have gotten your new tickets, you can pick new reservation dates.

If you need to renew an old ticket, you should be aware of the new prices for Disneyland tickets so that you know how much extra you’ll have to pay.
Thus, here are the 2022 prices for the most common Disneyland tickets:
- One-day adult ticket tier 1: $104

What If Disney Extended the Life of My Ticket?
In some circumstances, Disneyland will announce that it will extend the lifespan of expired tickets.
If Disneyland has declared an extension for your ticket, you do not need to take any further steps.
You do not even have to contact Disneyland or get a new ticket.
The Disneyland employee at the gate will recognize that Disney has extended your ‘expired’ ticket and will let you into the park.
Are Disneyland Tickets Date-Specific?
If you are trying to figure out if your ticket will be valid on the day you want to visit the park, you, of course, need to know if your ticket is date-specific.
Well, overall, whether your ticket is date-specific depends on the type of ticket you have.
For example, one-day tickets to Disneyland come in six tiers, and the tier you have determines when you can use it.
To find out which days you can use your one-day ticket, check out the dates here.
Conversely, for multiday tickets, you need to read the terms for your individual ticket to know when you can use it.
Do I Need a Reservation to Visit the Park?
You should also know that as of now and for the foreseeable future, Disneyland requires that all guests make reservations to visit the park.
If you do not make a reservation first, employees will not let you into Disneyland’s parks even if you have a ticket.
Thus, to make your ticket ‘valid’ for the day you want to come to the park, you must make a reservation in advance.
To find out which days are available for reservation, you need to check Disneyland’s Theme Park Availability Calendar.
You can either make your reservation when you buy your ticket or at some point after purchase.
If you need to reserve a date for a ticket you’ve already purchased, you can do so here.
What If I Still Have Questions About the Validity of My Ticket?
If you still aren’t sure whether or not your ticket is valid, you can always call Disneyland’s ticket line at (714) 781-4636.
Can I Sell a Disneyland Park Ticket?
If you have an old Disneyland park ticket, you may want to know its validity so that you can sell it.
It may sound odd, but there are actually laws that prohibit people from re-selling theme park tickets, meaning you could get into legal trouble for re-selling a Disneyland ticket.
There can be consequences for re-selling tickets because of an issue known as ticket scalping.
Ticket scalping is when a person buys a lot of tickets and then raises the price of those tickets so that desperate people have to buy them from the scalper at inflated rates.
The scalper then makes a profit.
Each US state has made laws about ticket scalping because many people see the practice as unfair.
But, you may be thinking, “I just want to sell my ticket at face value, and that’s not scalping, so maybe I won’t get in trouble.”
Well, I’m sorry to tell you that according to most scalping laws, any re-selling of tickets can come with legal consequences.
Can I Get a Refund on a Disneyland Ticket?
Another possible question you may be wondering if you have an old ticket is whether or not you can get a refund.
Well, unfortunately, according to Disneyland’s ticket terms and conditions, tickets are non-refundable.
Thus, Disneyland will not give you any money back for your old ticket, even if it is still valid.
So, really, the best thing you can do with an old ticket is to wait until you can make it to Disneyland and renew it if you need to do so.

However, if you can’t find the expiration date or have any questions, you can always call Disneyland’s ticket line at (714) 781-4636.
