  • Using WDW ticket at DL

    I know it is possible but do you have to use the WDW ticket at WDW first? Can I use it for my DL trip this year in Dec and still use the remainder of it in July next year? I do have no-expiration.
    Love WoC!!!

    Next DL trip: August 2011

    Re: Using WDW ticket at DL

    They're likely to be more expensive than DL tickets, so why would you waste them? Are you planning never to go to WDW? Are you low on funds?
    Answer, I believe, is "yes," simply due to above stated fact: they're more expensive than similar ones at DL, so it is more than happy to take your money.

    (Although I should do the math first. I mean, a 10-day pass is cheaper per day than a 1-day DL pass.)
    Big question is how to convert it, as the Main Entrance machine might not accept it, and a ticket booth might not be able to take one day off of your pass (convert a six-day pass to a five-day pass, for example).

    Also, if this is the case, then this would be a great way to buy no-expiration passes to DL, though buying an AP would likely be less expensive and more day-able in one year. However, for a person who wants to go to DL, maybe twice a year for the next five years, could buy a 10-day WDW pass for $371 (plus taxes) today.

      Cool, non-expiration passes! Oh, those are only available at WDW huh? Most of the ones (even 5 day hoppers) for Disneyland expire 13 days after the first visit.

      I am not sure if the scanner at the gate would accept the ticket though, since the parks use different styles of machines. Any CMs know how this would work?

        You can not use your WDW ticket at Disneyland
        WDW ticket only use at WDW.

        You must buy a Disneyland ticket for Disneyland.

          Re: Using WDW ticket at DL

          I found this bit of info on a couple of differnt sites:

          Can I use my WDW tickets at Disneyland or any other Disney park?
          Yes and no. The only WDW tickets that you can use are MYW passes and even then only at Disneyland in California. You will have to take the ticket to Guest Relations at DL and they will have to call WDW Guest Relations to confirm that the ticket is still valid. There is a drawback though. When the ticket gets converted, you will lose the ability to park hop at DL so you can only see Disneyland or Disney's California Adventure, not both in 1 day. UPDATE: AllEarsNet reader Ron Gordon reports that on his May 2005 trip to DL, he was able to convert his old WDW park hopper ticket to a DL park hopper so the policy may have changed.
          You cannot use WDW AP/PAP's at Disneyland. None of the other Disney parks will accept admission media from any other park

            I can get 7 day park hopper non expiration tickets for 339 each. Divide that by 7 days and its $48.43 a day. We'll use one day at DL this Christmas and 5 or 6 days in July at WDW. Just to clarify.

              Actually, this is not true. You can use your WDW ticket at Disneyland. But you cannot use DL tickets at WDW. Here is information from Mouse Savers:

              Using Walt Disney World Tickets at Disneyland

              Interesting, unpublished fact: you can use any unexpired, leftover days on a Walt Disney World ticket at Disneyland or DCA! Present the Disney World ticket at the gate on arrival -- they will take it somewhere, deduct a day from it, and give you a one-day Disneyland and/or DCA ticket. You can repeat this day by day until the Disney World ticket is used up. They will not give you a multi-day ticket all at once, even if you have multiple days left on your Disney World ticket.

              The type of Disneyland ticket you will receive is based on the Walt Disney World ticket you present: if you have a Disney World ticket with the Hopper option, you will get a Disneyland Hopper that allows you to visit both parks in the same day; on the other hand, if the Disney World ticket had no Hopper option, you will get a one-day/one-park ticket and will have to pick which park to enter that day. This information was confirmed as of August 2006.

              Disneyland passes are NOT accepted at Walt Disney World, and Annual Passes are only good at the park where they were purchased (WDW Annual Passes are NOT good at Disneyland, and vice versa).
              If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

                Can you go to the ticket booths and convert a WDW ticket to a DLR one.

                  ^^Try reading the above posts in particular # 7.

                  I would assume you have to go to guest relations and not a ticket booth to do it however.

                    Re: Using WDW ticket at DL

                    You take your WDW Ticket DIRECTLY to the turnstile of the park you want to enter. They will page a lead CM and they will take your WDW ticket, run to a computer in a nearby office, and deduct one day from your WDW ticket. They will give you a one-day DL ticket (a park hopper if your WDW ticket is a park hopper). This process is very quick, no more than 2 minutes or so. We did this earlier this month.

                    Do not take it to guest relations or the ticket booths --- you will wait in their line just to be told that the ONLY place to exchange one day of a WDW tickets is at the turnstiles of the park.

                      Were you specifically told not to go to guest relations first, molarman? I would imagine going to the turnstyle would unnecessarly hold up the line for the guests behind you, when guest relations could issue you the proper pass needed for DLR.

                      Is this something new that they started allowing cause I always heard that no tickets purchased for the two resort were interchangable?

                          No anyone can get non-expiration date tickets to WDW. Up until about two years ago all of them were like that, when they switched over to the Magic you way tickets you has to pay a little extra for the no expiration option.

                            I was wondering how you get the tickets so much cheaper than I can get online. I know about MYW options and such.
                            I'm assuming that FL residents get some kind of discount. It's not important, though.

                              it seems silly but since they are supposed to be " standardizing" the us parks it would make sense that Ap's and tickets should be transferable between the parks. especially when WDW offers a 10 day ticket and you can do most of the resort in 7 days or less. that leaves three extra days that could be used somewhere else. but also considering the cost of an ap at WDW, it should be good at DL as well. guess jay's team dropped the ball on this one.

                                We went first week of September and went to Guest Relations first, then Ticket Booth, and they directed us to the turnstiles. It doesn't hold up the turnstiles at all. They take your WDW pass and ask to to step aside (we waited by the stroller gate) and in 2 minutes, the Lead CM came back with our 1-Day DL Pass. Ticket Booth and Guest Relations said they did not have access to WDW ticket computer to verify the WDW pass. Also, they only do this on the day of desired entry, and will not do it for a future day. By doing this at the turnstile, this guarantees that you will use the pass the day it is taken off the WDW pass.

                                We went to the Ticket Booth after Guest Relations because we had to buy a DL Parkhopper for one of our family members ... not enough WDW passes to exchange for all.
