    My father is retired military+would like 2 buy r family a vac package 2 disneyworld 2 celebrate r daughters bday, however bc my mother is disabled he will not b able 2 make the trip w/us. Can he still use his military discount 2 purchase a package 4 us?

    Hello Jennifer!

    As a military spouse, I'd like to first say "thank you" to your dad for his service.  I think it's amazingly sweet for him to want to purchase a vacation package for a birthday present.  That's the most awesome birthday gift I could ever dream of!

    In order to qualify for Disney's Special Military Promotions, the Active Duty or Retired military person must be present (a spouse may also receive the discounts provided the military member can not be present).  a valid military ID is require to purchase and activate the special Four-Day Park Hopper Tickets as well as to qualify for the resort room discounts.  You can read all of the details about the Special Military Offers by clicking the link and heading over to the webpage. 

    Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with, Jennifer!  

    Have a magical day,
