    I want to know if my family member that's in the military buys tickets for my kids as a gift, would they have to be there when we enter the gates at the park?

    Hi Varlencia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Great question! Once the military discount tickets are purchased, there is no need for the military family member to be present. If you have not done so already, be sure to link them to your My Disney Experience Account so that you can begin making your FastPass+ selections. We have purchased them before for family and there has never been a need to have the the military family member present to activate them.
