    Hi! We just bought our 2023 Armed Forces Salute tickets from Shades of Green. Can we enter the park without stopping at Guest Relations? Also - is there a 2023 military memory maker package, and if so can we purchase it anywhere at Disney Springs?

    Hey there, hi there, Amanda! Welcome, and thank you so very much for your question.

    Oh my goodness, were you on the edge of your seat, waiting for this announcement? I know I was! Walt Disney World is so very thoughtful when it comes to our servicemembers, and my family uses our Disney Military Salute tickets every year. The discount is fantastic, and it's a great way to get some "R and R" with your family.

    When you purchase your tickets through Shades of Green, you have to provide proof of eligibility. Those tickets are then sold already activated, which will allow you to go directly to the entrance of the theme park and head on in. I do recommend that you have your military ID with you since they could ask for it at the gate (this has never happened to me, but I do know of people that have had to show their ID as they entered).

    There is a special military rate for Memory Maker for 2023. You will want to purchase it before you go though, which can be done online. I recommend purchasing it at least three days prior to your trip, Amanda, since photos taken within three days of your purchase are not included in the Memory Maker package. 

    Amanda, thank you to you or the service member in your family for their dedication and commitment to our country. As a Navy wife, I know the sacrifices can be great, and your family is so very appreciated.
