    I have a military 4 day park hopper ticket. I wanted to activate these tickets a day before I enter the parks on June 3rd. Is there a way I can activate my tickets a day before park entry?

    Greetings, Joseph, and welcome to planDisney! Thank you for your service! It makes me proud that Walt Disney World Resort offers military discounts, and I'm thrilled you could take advantage of the Disney Military Salute Ticket offer for your upcoming visit. I have some tips for activating those tickets so you can jump right into the magic.

    Activating your theme park tickets a day before you use them is a fabulous idea because you can head straight to the park entrance on your first day of fun. My favorite spot to take care of ticket business is the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. I typically go there the evening I arrive in town to activate my family's tickets and grab a bite at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant. It's the perfect way to ease into the Disney bubble!

    You can also activate your tickets at the Guest Relations window outside any theme park entrance. You won't need to scan in or use the ticket immediately, and if you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel or Shades of Green, you can use complimentary transportation to and from the parks. 

    Remember to have your valid military ID and all party members present wherever you decide to activate your tickets. My tip is to ask about special pricing to add Memory Maker to one ticket. This will give you unlimited digital downloads of all PhotoPass images taken on your trip. You can share them with your party so everyone can treasure the memories for years to come.

    Joseph, I salute your planning skills! Thanks again for stopping by planDisney. I wish you a well-deserved vacation with Mickey!

    Magic awaits,
