    Due to not being able to purchase military tickets until January 2023 is that enough time for our Disney trip for February 2023 to make a reservation? Since now reservations are now required?

    Hi there, Cassandra! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy, I'm so excited to hear that you're thinking ahead to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation next January. In fact, sometimes I have almost as much fun planning the vacation as I do being on the vacation, itself! Also, I want to sincerely thank you for your military service. I know service members and their families truly understand the meaning of commitment and sacrifice. As a military spouse, I have seen how valuable quality time together is and I can't think of a better place to spend that time than at The Most Magical Place on Earth! 

    Cassandra, Walt Disney World Resort loves to salute its military families with Special Offers on select Disney Resorts Collection hotels and theme park tickets! Military Salute Tickets can either be purchased through Morale, Welfare, and Recreation from your local base or purchased through Shades of Green. My husband and I enjoy ordering our tickets from Shades of Green because they get mailed to us activated and ready to be used! However you order your tickets, you'll want to make sure you link your tickets to your My Disney Experience account, then make your theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system.

    I know you mentioned being a little worried about the availability of theme park reservations for the dates of your trip since there isn't a huge amount of time between purchasing your tickets and your vacation, itself. I've been in similar situations where I've purchased my tickets only several weeks before my trip, so I understand the feeling! In my experience, I've never had a problem making the theme park reservations I wanted to have, even with only several weeks' notice. I think you will have a similar experience as long as you book your theme park reservations as soon as you're able.

    Here's the other good news, Cassandra - Military Salute Tickets come with the Park Hopper option included! This means that, in the rare occurrence that your desired park is unavailable for one of the days of your trip, you could always hop to your first-choice park after 2:00 PM. This is a great way to multiply the magic on your vacation! In fact, my husband and I often take advantage of this Park Hopper option while we visit Walt Disney World Resort. We love waking up early to jump on our favorite rides, such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Magic Kingdom Park, then hop over to Animal Kingdom Theme Park to explore the bioluminescent plant life of Pandora - The World of Avatar at night! 

    Cassandra, when you visit Walt Disney World Resort next January, there is surely magic waiting for you around every corner. I'm wishing you all the faith, trust, and pixie dust that you have the best trip ever! If you have any other questions, please visit us again.

    You've got a friend in me!
