    We don't have a military base near us, so we need to purchase the military salute tickets at the ticket counters (been doing it this way for years). How is that going to work with the re-opening reservation + tickets process?

    Welcome BACK, Mary!

    It's so good to see you visiting us again hEAR at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    This is an excellent question. I'm an Air Force wife and just like you I've purchased the Multi-Day Military Promotional Theme Park Tickets for both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort minutes before I walked through the turnstiles. I love how convenient these tickets are, because even when I don't know what the future will hold next year or even next week, I can still plan a vacation to Disney, no matter how last minute!

    I'm currently looking into the details of this scenario because right now we just don't know. If you're asking about tickets to Walt Disney World Resort, reach out to Shades of Green, which is an Armed Forces Recreation Center located on property, just across from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. They have a Military Ticket Sales Office that just like base does not charge sales tax, but more importantly, they recently started selling tickets "online". I will say it is a bit of a process. (You have to first reach out to them inquiring about tickets and they'll email an information request sheet back to you so they can double check your eligibility status. Once verified they'll call you to confirm your order, and then they'll mail your tickets to you. I did this in the fall of 2018 and it took about two weeks from my initial inquiry to receiving my magical mail.) But, if you can secure your tickets this way then woohoo! I'll also say that the best way to reach them is via email, which is TicketInfo@ShadesOfGreen.Org.

    If you're asking about Military Tickets to Disneyland Resort we're still waiting to hEAR back on those, too. So far the reopening information has been provided is all for Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, not Mickey's original house in California as the two states are facing different reopening rules. Definitely keep up with the Disney Parks Blog as this is the best place to catch the newest news. But I also want you to reach back out to me in a week or two to see what I've dug up. You can ask me a direct question through my Disney Parks Moms Panel Profile (I'll be here through the end of June), OR, you're also welcome to directly ask one of my fellow Military Moms Panelist Pros Angie C., Shantel H. and Kristin C.

    I know that this wasn't that helpful, Mary, but I hope to be able to make some magic for you real soon!
