Thanks Mindy. Thought that was it, but wasn't sure. When I played with this on MDE just now, it just listed those people and said to wait until 60 days out...didn't mention a ticket. Confused myself.

Cheers.

Default Strategy for booking one night in moderate/deluxe WDW hotel?

We're flying in the night before a DVC stay. My husband wants to book something now (3 mos out) but I want to wait til the week before, hoping to get a better rate. What is your experience on timing? TIA!

Book now for availability and peace of mind. If a better rate comes out, then just call and have them apply discount to your confirmation.

Dumb question here!

If I buy a 4-day park hopper pass I don't have to use it for 4 consecutive days right?

For example, I buy a 4-day park hopper pass in January 2019. I go to WDW for a weekend, say, 12MAY-14May. I still have 2 days on those passes to use sometime before the pass expires at the end of December 2019 right? The days can be split up anyway I want as long as I use them within the eligible dates?

I am pretty sure this is the case but I can't find a solid example/answer on the Disney website.

Thanks!

I think the tickets expire within 14 days of first use. It should say in the fine print. Iím 99.9% sure that unless you get a special type of ticket with some published special expiration date, itís 14 days from first use.

Yep - TexasChic is correct. Unless you are from FL.

In the fine print on the bottom of the ticket page on the WDW site, it says...

“Multi-day tickets and any options purchased must be used within 14 days of first use, except for Florida Resident 3-Day and 4-Day Tickets. Florida Resident 3-Day and 4-Day Tickets expire 180 days after first use. First use must occur on or before December 31, 2019.”


This is the link to the page...

Sorry, I should have mentioned that these are military park hopper tickets. I can't find anything regarding the 14-day use limit on the page for the military priced park hoppers.

Here is the link.

I have used military tickets before . There are tickets that do not require the military ID card holder to be present and those that do. The dependent tickets expire . The active duty and retired military tickets may not . .

Silly question but why does it seem that during Jersey week the entire state goes to WDW?
