    My family is making plans to visit week of March 4. My father is purchasing military tickets for us , can we activate the tickets at Downtown Disney? We are not staying on the WDW property.

    Hi Christine!

    These park tickets will need to be activated at a Theme Park window. However, this is a fairly simple process (about 10 minutes with ID verification and a few forms to complete), so it shouldn't take too long to do. The easiest way would be to simply show up any Theme Park and head to the ticket window.

    If for some reason your father won't be heading to the parks with you, it may be best to activate the tickets at either Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios since I personally think that parking access is easiest at those parks (for quick trips). Alternatively, he could head over to the Park with you on your first day, and then choose to return to your off property resort (rather than heading into the park).

    For other important details of the Military Promotional Tickets be sure to check out the fine print!

    Hope you have a great trip!
