    Hello! We are getting military tickets through base, and want to know if we need to use a park day prior to using the plus day for a water park? Previously we were told we could not use a plus water park day before visiting the parks. Thank you!

    Hi Mina,

    Welcome to planDisney! First, let me say a sincere thank you to you and your family for your service. 

    As you know, Walt Disney World Resort celebrates those who serve our military, along with their families. One of my favorite traditions at Magic Kingdom Park is the Flag Retreat Ceremony that takes place each day at 5:00 p.m. on Main Street U.S.A. town square. I hope that your family will take some time during your visit to be a part of this special celebration.

    Mina, I checked with a friendly Cast Member, Moesha, about your question. You will be glad to know that you do not need to visit a theme park before visiting a water park with your Military Salute or Magic Your Way ticket. If you purchase your tickets using a military discount, you will need to validate your tickets at the water park, however, so please bring your valid military ID with you.

    If you purchased a date-based ticket, the starting date of the ticket must coincide with the date of your first use (either in the theme parks or at one of the Water Park and Sports option locations) and your date range begins on the date of the first use of the ticket (either in the theme parks or at one of the Water Park and Sports option locations).

    Mina, remember to learn about all of the discounts Walt Disney World Resorts offers to military service members and their families so that you can make the most of your next visit. Stop by any time with other questions you may have; we are here to help.

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
