    My father-in-law is a retired veteran. He wants to purchase tickets for my birthday. Where can he buy them at the discounted rate? He has PTSD and will not be traveling with us.

    Magical Greetings, Tommy! Thank you for visiting us at planDisney. From all of us, thank you for your father-in-law's service. I am happy to answer your question today.

    As a retired Veteran, he has several military ticket options offered to him from Walt Disney World Resort, but today, I will focus on the one he can purchase for you since he is not planning on visiting with you. He can purchase Magic Your Way tickets, which are regular theme park tickets sold at a slight discount. He can purchase these tickets through your local military base or Shades of Green Resort. You will have the option of purchasing base tickets, or tickets with Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus. The great thing about these tickets is that he doesn't have to be present to "activate" them (the Disney Military Salute Tickets require this step), and the tickets are already considered "active". This means you can head straight to the entrance turnstiles once you arrive at your first theme park and not stop at Guest Relations to activate them. Both ticket types require theme park pass reservations before your visit.

    Once your father-in-law has purchased your tickets, you can link them to everyone traveling with you by downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app. Click on the "☰" icon, and select "Tickets and Passes". Click on the "+" icon on the top right, and follow the steps to link tickets. This app is great because you will have all your reservations in one place, including resort and advanced dining reservations, and join virtual attraction queues. You can also make Mobile Orders for food and beverages, which is great when you want to eat in between attractions. To maximize your visit, consider purchasing Disney Genie+ during your visit. 

    Tommy, thank you for your question once again. If you have other questions about planning your visit, stop by planDisney at any time. You've got a friend in me!

    Magic Awaits!
