    We have 5 military 4 day park hopper passes and cannot make a reservation with the actual ticket but we cannot turn them in for actual tickets until we arrive. Is there any way around this for us to mke reservations?

    Hi Carrie,

    Thanks for trusting planDisney with such an important question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Disney Military Salute Tickets offer patriotic savings for Eligible Service Members and their loved ones. I wish to extend heartfelt gratitude to your family for the sacrifices that qualify you for these star-spangled tickets. My family has been using Disney Military Salute Tickets for over ten years. Let your conscience and my experience be your guide when making theme park reservations for your upcoming visit.

    Disney Military Salute Tickets must be linked to an individual in My Disney Experience and activated before use. Activation occurs in-person with a valid and active US Military ID at Guest Relations or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs, but you can link your tickets to My Disney Experience anytime using the exchange vouchers you already have in your possession. My most recent exchange voucher came in the form of a plastic card with a patriotic Mickey design on the front. Exchange vouchers can also come in the form of a thicker cardstock ticket or a piece of paper with a Guest name and ticket number on it.

    The ID number I entered online to link my most recent Disney Military Salute Ticket in My Disney Experience was the 16-character ID code found on the back of the exchange voucher plus the four characters that I had to scratch off to reveal. After you enter a ticket ID number, you'll be asked to match the ticket to a member of your Family & Friends list. If you are linking your spouse's ticket using your account and they have their own My Disney Experience account, make sure you are connected as Family & Friends before linking. If your spouse and/or your children do not have their own My Disney Experience accounts, click "Add a Guest" and their plans will be managed under your account. You can also link tickets in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Once your tickets appear in your My Disney Experience account, you can proceed with making your theme park reservations online. Disney Military Salute Tickets include the Park Hopper Option, which means you must enter the theme park for which you have a theme park reservation each day, and can 'hop' to any park after 2:00 p.m. 

    When you activate your Disney Military Salute Tickets, Carrie, you'll be given admission cards you can use to enter a theme park. Other methods of entry include MagicBands and Disney MagicMobile passes. While speaking with the Cast Member, you can also purchase a specially-priced Memory Maker for Eligible Service Members. This lets you capture as many memories of your Fab Five as possible.

    I hope this information helps you prepare for the magic. Should any follow-up questions arise, please contact me directly to continue the conversation.

    Choose magic,
