    Hellos I was given 2 tickets from my cousin that’s in the military, am I going to be asked for military Id at the gate since these were gifts?? Thanks so much..

    Hiya, Julieta!

    Thank you so much for sending your Disneyland Resort planning question to us hEAR at planDisney!

    First, please allow me to say a big, double-ear chEARs and Thank You to your cousin for their Military service on behalf of all of my panel pals! My husband is in the Air Force, and I'm very familiar with the ins and outs of these passes. It's my pleasuEAR to help you figure this out today!

    ~ If the tickets you were given are the 3 or 4-day 'Disney Military Promotional Park Hopper Tickets' that can be used between now and December 16 of this yEAR, then yes, I'm so sorry to say that your cousin will need to be with your crew as a Mil ID is required. These passes can be used by friends and family members only if the Service Member (or their Spouse) is present to both activate these tickets as well as enjoy the day with your group inside the theme parks. If these are the tickets that you have, no worries! You can certainly apply the value of what they cost towards the price of regularly priced Theme Park Admission Tickets. To do this, you can ask in person at the Ticket Booths; but, because Guests now also need to make a Park Pass Reservation for each Disney Day they plan on visiting Mickey's house, which have been known to sell out in advance, it's a really great idea to call the Disneyland Ticketing Helpline to make this switcharoo as soon as you can. Their phone number is (714) 781-4636.

    ~ If, however, the tickets are not the exclusive Disney Military Promotional Park Hopper passes, then you should be all set to enjoy some fun in the Southern California sun! Base ticket offices sell discounted tickets to all sorts of attractions, both in the area and all over the world, and they're able to broker some really great rates due to the volume of tickets they sell. You should be in the clEAR if your gifted tickets are one-day, two-day, and five-day Disneyland tickets. I've purchased these tix for my Disney besties Veronica and Kristin C. before and they had zero issues using them without me present. (Just remember to make your Park Pass Reservations!) If your tickets are two-day or three-day passes, your biggest clue to determine their type will be the fine print: if your tickets say 'expires 13 days after first use' then you have these slightly discounted passes where you don't need a chaperon. Woohoo!

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Julieta! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account where we're sharing all kinds of tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
