    Hello. We are buying tickets at MWR on our base. We however can't come to WDW till he gets out of the Navy a few months after we buy tickets. Will we still be able to use them since he wont have a military ID ?

    Hi Jamie Paula, welcome to planDisney!

    Virginia is for Disney lovers and there's a lot to love about Walt Disney World Resort. My husband loves the golf. My son loves the thrills. My daughter loves the snacks. I love making memories with my family. 

    Thank you for explaining your situation so clearly. There are two types of discounted Walt Disney World Resort ticket options available to valued service members and their family members. Disney Military Salute tickets are steeply discounted tickets available to Eligible Service Members, who are defined as active or retired members of the U.S. Military. These tickets do not meet your needs because they require in-person activation at a Guest Relations window outside a theme park or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs before your first park day and activation requires a valid and active US military ID. If you bought these tickets at your base ticket office, you'd end up not being able to use them without a military ID.  

    Your circumstances do qualify you for Magic Your Way tickets at a special rate. Your base ticket office will have a detailed price sheet available, but it should resemble the theme park tickets offered by Shades of Green online. There are a variety of ticket lengths and types to consider. These tickets do not require activation; you can enter a theme park with linked admission in My Disney Experience and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card).

    I hope this information helps you understand your ticket options, Jamie Paula. Thank you for your family's military service. Best wishes for happy holidays and a magical new year!

    Choose magic,
