    My family is going to Disney World next month (Feb 2024) using the Military Salute ticket. Because I must show my military ID at the gate, I can't make a reservation. Is there a way around this so I can better plan my trip?

    Hi Aaron,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your service. It's always a true honor to help our heroes enjoy time with family on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    I'm so happy to see that you have already picked up your Disney Military Salute ticket vouchers from a participating US Military Sales outlet. These are such a great value and you have earned it! 

    Now, to continue planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, including securing theme park reservations, you will need to locate the 17-digit identification number on your voucher and link your Disney Military Salute Tickets to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to make plans, but please note that you are still required to make a quick stop at Guest Relations with your vouchers and Military ID before entering a Walt Disney World Resort theme park. 

    Aaron, did you know that both MagicBands and Disney MagicMobile Service are available to you on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation? You can use the power of these convenient tools to make fumbling for a theme park admission ticket or credit card a thing of the past!

    Plus, you also have access to special pricing on Memory Maker. This is a one-time purchase that provides you with digital downloads of all of the important memories captured by Disney PhotoPass photographers throughout Walt Disney World Resort during your visit. Memory Maker is currently $98 through December 20, 2024, for Eligible Service Members. I can't recommend it enough! 

    I hope this is helpful, Aaron. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We are here for you. 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
