    Hello, My brother gifted us regular military discounted 1-day tickets to take my kids to Disneyland for this weekend as their birthday gift. Does my brother have to be present to go into Disneyland when using those tickets? (tickets purchased at the Base)

    Hi Yanira! Welcome to planDisney.

    A great big happy birthday to your kiddos! I can't think of a better place for a birthday celebration than a Disney park, and it's so wonderful that your brother gave such a special gift. As a military spouse, I would like to thank him, and your whole family, for his service to our country. 

    It sounds like you have the military-discounted theme park tickets for the Disneyland Resort, which is good news because the military member does not need to be present when they are used. The Military Salute 3-day and 4-day military tickets do require activation, but since those aren't the tickets you have, you should be all set. Because there are so many different ticket types, you could either call the base ticket office or the Disneyland Resort ticket line to confirm that the tickets don't require activation. 

    Yanira, as part of the phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort, Guests require Theme Park Reservations to enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. If you haven't made those for this weekend yet, please be sure to do so as soon as you can, as availability is very limited. You will also be required to show proof of California residency when you arrived. The Returning to a Land of Magic webpage is filled with helpful information so you can plan your birthday visit and be prepared for the operational changes and health and safety guidelines.

    Have the most magical birthday celebration at the Disneyland Resort! Be sure to pick up complimentary Celebration Buttons for your Mouseketeers so Cast Members and your fellow Guests know it's a special day and can send special wishes all day long. ChEARs to your birthday adventure!

    Wishing you a fantastic Disneyland day,
