    Dean from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We are Florida residents, and have purchased tickets through the Navy MWR at NAS JAX. We also have reservations to stay at Port Orleans River side. Can we pickup the actual tickets prior to our reservation without activating them ?

    A warm welcome to you, Dean! Thanks for stopping by planDisney today with your question, I am happy to help.

    You absolutely can pick up your tickets from NAS JAX before your visit. In fact, I recommend you do so because you will need to make theme park pass reservations with your Disney Military Salute Tickets. Use the numerical code on the back of the "Exchange Certificates" to link to you and everyone in your travel group on your My Disney Experience mobile app. Hold on to those tickets, you will need them! Once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, take the Sassagoula River Cruise from Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside to Disney Springs. Stop by Guest Relations, and activate your tickets there. I like to go to the Disney Springs location the day before my first park visit, so I can go straight to the entrance booth on our first park day and avoid the lines for Guest Relations there.

    Speaking of Port Orleans-Riverside, once you arrive to check in, take a photo of the Resort Activities Guide, located in the lobby. It will tell you about all the fun family activities to do during the day, and in the evening. Some popular ones include Movies Under the Stars and Campfire on de'Bayou on Ol'Man Island. You can rent Surrey Bikes, or take a nice walk down to Disney's Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter, and pick up some delicious Mickey-shaped Beignets at Scat Cat's Club-Café. This resort has so much to offer, and I hope you enjoy staying here as much as I did!

    Dean, thanks for stopping by planDisney again. Feel free to send me questions at any time before your visit. The magic awaits!
