When you get in trouble and you don’t know right from wrong
Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle! – Jiminy Cricket
Q. I have a question relating to the new wristband ticket system. I have purchased 10 day no expiration tickets for my family. So far we have used 5 of those days in two separate trips to WDW. We don’t plan to be back at WDW until 2014 and I imagine that our tickets will have to be converted to the bands. Since Disney is no longer offering no expiration tickets will they honor that part of our ticket or will we have to use up all the days during our next trip or lose any unused days?

A. Hi Suzie!
There are actually quite a few points I want to address in your question.
First of all, many people have questions about the MyMagic+ system, which is the brand new vacation management system that connects nearly all aspects of the guest experience. There are three different components of it. They include My Disney Experience, a new website and mobile application; Disney FastPass+ service will allow guests to lock in some of their must-do attractions and experiences for each day; and MagicBands, worn on the wrist, are all-in-one devices that connect all the vacation choices guests make online, in a nutshell. Of course, there are components of all this and if you would like to read more, please visit: http://www.themouseforless.com/tripplanning/wdwparks/MyMagicInfo.shtml. While there is no official start date Disney has been running periodic tests. Some people expect that it may be out by the end of this year however that could be pushed back.
At some point your tickets will need to be converted to the MagicBand or an RFID card. No matter what happens though, Disney will still honor your no expiration tickets. You will not lose any days.
You can still get this option when purchasing tickets however it is no longer available online. You must do it in person at a Walt Disney World ticket window. So, while not something you can do ahead of time, it is still an option once you get to Florida!
Happy planning for your 2014 trip!
