    I’d like to buy tickets for my daughter for her birthday. Am I able to use my veteran discount to do so and not be with her?

    Hi Samantha! Welcome to planDisney.

    Happy birthday to your daughter! A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort sounds like the exactly perfect birthday gift to me, and it's wonderful that you want to give her the gift of a magical experience and amazing memories. Hurray!

    As a military spouse, I would like to thank you for your service to our country. My family has spent many wonderful vacations at Walt Disney World, and we're so grateful for the fantastic military discounts that make those vacations possible. The terms and conditions of the 2021 Military Promotional Theme Park Tickets specify that the military member or their spouse (with valid ID) must be present and using one of the tickets. So, it sounds like you should plan a mother-daughter visit!

    A couple of other things to consider, Samantha. The 2021 military-discounted tickets must be purchased and used by December 17, 2021. It looks like you're planning a visit later this week, but I wanted to make you aware of that. We're still waiting for an announcement about the 2022 military discounts - I'm hopeful they will come any day, but a discount is never guaranteed for the next year. You might also want to take a look at the Shades of Green website, as they have a list of other military-discounted tickets - just note that the discounts are lower than on the military promotional tickets, and I recommend looking at the terms of conditions to see if any of those come pre-activated or ready for her to use without you present. In the past, I've always received great customer service when calling them with my questions. 

    If you'd like to purchase regular theme park tickets for your daughter, the steps for checking out a ticket purchase as a gift, as well as for ticket pick-up at Will Call, can be found in this Ticket FAQ. I recommend taking a look at the Special Offers webpage to see if there are any discounts available that might help with the cost.

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney! If you have any further questions, please come back and see us. And please wish your daughter a very magical birthday on behalf of the planDisney panelists!

    Wishing you much magic,
