    We have 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets. What does "activate those Tickets at WDW theme park ticket windows" mean? We have 2 4-yos & want to limit the confusion. We are staying at SOG. What do we have to do and where? We arrive by air

    I fully understand your desire to simplify the process, considering that you're traveling with little ones.  Not to worry, though, Michael; activating your tickets should be easy peasy.  What you'll need to do is take your tickets (along with your valid military ID) to one of the ticket windows at any of the theme parks.  These ticket windows are easily identified at each park entrance (the Magic Kingdom ticket windows are actually located at the Ticket and Transportation Center where you board either the monorail or ferry to get to the Magic Kingdom, but you can't miss them).  The Cast Member will take care of the activating, you just need to present with the tickets and your military ID in hand.  It's similar to when you purchase a gift card at a retailer.  The gift card can't actually be used until it's loaded at the register, right?  Same idea for activating your tickets.  Once your tickets have been activated, they will function just like non-military tickets at any theme park entrance.  The only tip I would offer is to arrive just a bit earlier (15-20 minutes or so) than you normally would, as it might take a few minutes to go through the process.  Also, be sure to activate your tickets by September 30th of this year.  Have a great trip!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
