    Help I just got my exchange certificate for my mil salute how do I activate so I can make a park resvation?

    Greetings Space Ranger!

    I’m so happy your journey into the galaxy brought you to planDisney, Rhonda. Welcome! I want to start off with a huge thank you from my military family to yours. You must be so excited for your upcoming vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. Does your visit include a stay at a Disney Resort hotel? If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the great deals, offered at select Disney Resort hotels, for U.S. Military Members. My family always takes advantage of the great rates, plus there’s nothing more comforting than staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. My little Space Cadets always feel like they’ve never even left the parks when we stay at a Disney Resort hotel. 

    Now onto the fun part, I’m happy to hEAR that you already received your exchange certificate. You will want to treat this exchange certificate like a park ticket. What you will need to do first is scan the barcode, on the back of the exchange certificate, into your My Disney Experience account. The exchange certificate will then load into your My Disney Experience account as a traditional theme park ticket would. (Tip: Bring the exchange certificate(s) with you once you arrive, it will need be exchanged for the official ticket). After assigning the exchange certificate(s) to the correct Guest(s), you will then be ready to make your theme park reservations, using the Disney Park Pass system. Simply confirm your admission is linked to your account, create your party, and select the date(s) and theme parks you wish to visit. After reviewing and confirming your selections, you will be all set!

    Rhonda, I hope this helps you with making your theme park reservations. Please be sure to visit us again, if you have any more questions as you continue to plan.

    To Infinity & Beyond!
