    I’m using a military discount and arriving before others in our party. I’m not the military member. Can I still use the military card to get my admission ticket without the military member with me.

    Welcome to planDisney, Dandrea!

    We are so happy to see you here visiting us today and more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Let me first begin with a huge, “Thank You”, from my military family to yours. Please let the service member in your party know that we appreciate everything they do. To use and enjoy the specially priced theme park tickets, the service member, or their spouse, must be present to activate the tickets. It sounds like you have the exchange certificates in hand. You will need to take those and have the service member (or their spouse) present their military ID to Guest Relations. It only takes a few minutes for a Cast Member to activate them and make the swap from certificate, to admission card.

    Once the tickets have been activated, you all are free to go in and out of the parks without the service member. Again, they just need to be present on the first day to activate the tickets. After the first day, you all are free to split and schedule your Theme Park Reservations for whichever park you choose! My sister usually joins my family on our trips, and even though we stay together for the most part, we usually will split for a day or two and never run into any problems.

    Dandrea, I hope this helps answer your question. If there’s anything else we can help with don’t hesitate to ask, we all EARs!
