    I am buying military salute tickets and was told I could purchase them at the window. Because we will be purchasing them the day of use, can I make a park reservation before buying them?

    Hi Alysia,  

    Welcome to planDisney! Most importantly, thank you or your family member for their service to our great nation which qualifies you for the Military Salute special ticket offer. This is a discounted 4 – or 5 – day theme park ticket especially reserved for military families meeting the eligibility requirements. Please be sure you have a valid and active United States Military Identification (or military spouse identification) with you when you make this purchase.

    Yes, you may purchase these tickets in person at the Walt Disney World Resort but please note they are only available at the following locations on property:

    • Guest Relations locations at theme parks
    • Walt Disney World water parks
    • ESPN Wide World of Sports Welcome Center
    • Shades of Green ticket office (within the Shades of Green Resort, an Armed Forces Recreation Center at the Walt Disney World Resort)

    Please note these Military Salute special offer tickets are not available for sale at any Disney Resorts Collection hotel.

    Theme park reservations are required for these tickets and for entry into your first theme park each day (these Park Hopper tickets do not require a reservation for the planned second theme park visit of any day). Theme park reservations can only be made once you have a ticket assigned to each Guest within your My Disney Experience account, so unfortunately these cannot be made in advance. Good news though – the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar shows that all four parks are fully available for your upcoming visit. This is always subject to change, but I feel you’re in great shape for this coming week!

    Please ask the Cast Member when you purchase these tickets in person to support you in making the theme park reservation for that day and for the rest of your vacation. This will ensure a smooth entry process for your family at the entry gate. You will receive physical tickets for use throughout your vacation, but if you choose to set up Disney MagicMobile Service, check out the new Veterans and Military Families pass option with its beautiful American flag and service member design.

    I hope your family has the most magical time on this trip, Alysia! There is so much to look forward to at the Walt Disney World Resort this summer, and there is sure to be something to suit everyone’s style.  

    Thank you again for your family’s service, and for reaching out to us with your question. I hope your vacation is a wonderful escape with many more core memories made together!  

    With gratitude,
