Can Disney World Tickets be Transferred? Short answer, yes and no. Here’s why!

Many Disney travelers have things that unexpectedly come up.

If this is you, you’re probably wondering can Disney tickets be transferred to someone else?

Before you make any changes to your Disney ticket, I want to go over a few things to help you make the best decision in your current situation.

Some of the common Disney ticket transfer questions I’m asked are:

  1. Are Disney theme park tickets transferable?
  2. May I give my Disney ticket to someone else to use the remaining days?
  3. What happens if I don′t use all the days on my ticket?
  4. Is it possible for one person to use it the first half (days 1-3) and then a different family member to use the other half (days 4-5)?

These are the questions I will answer for you today!

Can you give your ticket to someone else?

No, you cannot.

According to Disney, once a person uses their Disney Theme Park Ticket, all subsequent admissions are specific to that person.

However…..the good news is if you have not yet used your Disney Theme Park Ticket you CAN reassign it. The condition is that it MUST go to someone on your Friends & Family list.  

Remember to do this BEFORE you use it! 

You will need to download the My Disney Experience App and go to the My Reservation section.

Select the ticket you want to reassign and transfer to your “Friend & Family” by selecting the link that says “Reassign Ticket.”  

Per Disney, ticket components are for you only and may not be transferred to another person.

So, if you have not yet used a ticket, you may transfer it to another person.

  • 3-day – The ticket expires 5 days after the selected start date. 
  • 4-day – The ticket expires 7 days after the selected start date.

My best tip is for you to visit Walt Disney World during the slow season to get the best value for your vacation.

When starting to budget for your Disney vacation remember that Walt Disney World categorizes adults as ages 10 and up and children from the ages of 3 to 9.

They also state that children younger than the age of 3 don’t require a ticket.
