If I purchase park tickets (a 10-day hopper) through a website that is still offering tickets priced prior to the rate increase, do these have an expiration?

I would like to buy our hoppers at the old price for our trip this October. But.....what if something happens and we can't go this October, and I already spent $900+ on park admission? Will these tickets still be valid if we chose to use them, say, in Spring 2012?

Thanks!

The tickets will still be valid. There are a few exceptions but those would be special promotional tickets like those given to corporate sponsors, YES tickets or those purchased by convention attendees.

Regular Disney tickets do not expire until 14 days after their first day of use. If you purchased the "no-expiry" addon, then they never expire.

So.....they will never expire until 14 days after the first time I use them? Doesn't matter old prices/new prices?

Correct. :) The "clock" (so to speak) doesn't start on the 14 days until the first time you use them.

So you could buy them now and not use them for five years and they will still be good then. :)
