Disney Theatrical Announces Unprecedented Ticket Exchange Program

Most of the time, when you are planning to attend a Broadway event and have already purchased your tickets, you are out of luck if you are unable to attend the performance. Today, Disney Theatrical announced it is introducing an unprecedented ticket exchange program for those planning on attending performances of ‘Aladdin’ or ‘The Lion King.’ The new policy allows ticketholders for Disney’s Broadway shows — in advance and for any reason whatsoever — to change the date they see the show at any time up until two hours in advance of their scheduled performance. There is no limit to the number of times the tickets may be exchanged. Tickets must be exchanged at the original point of purchase via the Disney on Broadway Hotline, Ticketmaster (phone and web) or in-person at the respective show box offices (New Amsterdam and Minskoff Theatres), and a modest exchange fee of $12 per ticket applies. This service is available only to guests of Disney’s New York City productions of Aladdin and The Lion King, and the exchange may be made only for another performance of the production originally purchased. Specific terms and conditions follow.
