Default What to do with unused options???

Does anyone have information on how to use several dozen old plastic tickets from the pre-magic band days that have unused options? I'm assuming they can still be used for mini golf and water parks, but..any other ideas?

Number of options per card range from one to nine.

BRV (2) contracts
Disney Daughter2 married at wedding chapel
Disney Son proposed on the beach at VWL with CM's help
Disney Daughter1 honymooned at Vero Beach
Have purchased transferred in points from several MO's in the past

Frequent user of David's to rent our points - (just refunded 4 renters due to virus) BTW - David's email said that they were refunding their 30% as well in each case.

They should have ticket numbers and you should be able to add them to your MDE account. We certainly have older non-expiring tickets that are in our account.

Cheers.

Same here. You can link the old tickets to your MDE account. Once done, you can use your MBs to visit the water parks.

But be careful. The really old tickets are not linked/fingerprint-tied to anyone.

We have several old tickets that we are NOT putting in MDE so that anyone could use them at sometime in the future. Once tickets that have been used and are associated with someone in MDE they cannot be moved for someone else's use.

and there is a way of emailing to see what is on them, i.e. if you are not sure you can find out without MDE.

I had around eight of the paper tickets dating back to 2000 with water park passes on them. I went to member services in Disney Springs and they gave me new plastic tickets for each paper one that had credits left on them. Some had six options on them. When we go to the water parks we just take the plastic tickets along

I have many old tickets, I contacted Disney they had me scan them and they responded with what was left on them which I kept that email. I didn't want to exchange them because then they will get an expiration date. They were so old the system could not identify them online, so I will keep them and go to member services when I want to use them. The information to get them identified is on the website.
