    Is it best to buy my tickets ahead of time or just wait until I arrive? We will be using a military discount and we are staying at the Shades of Green our first 2 nights.

    Hi Maggie!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Be sure to look into the promotional military tickets that Disney is offering US military personnel this year!  They are an awesome deal!  If you are near a military base, you can usually pick up those or other military discounted tickets at the local MWR office.  However, you can also just wait until you are at Walt Disney World.  The only advantage of getting them early is it is one less thing to do once you are at Walt Disney World.  If you wait until the morning you want to visit a theme park, just get there before the park officially opens.  It takes about 5 minutes to fill out the necessary paperwork for the promotional military tickets at the ticket booth.

    I hope this helps!  Shades of Green is a nice resort.  Enjoy!
