    Can a military rate ticket be activated and used by a non-military family member if the military member already purchased a non-military ticket? If not, can names be switched at the gate at day of arrival? Both will be going on the same day, same family.

    Hello there, Cory and welcome to planDisney!

    As a military spouse myself, I’ll be more than happy to help answer any questions you may have. Your question sounds like something I’ve experienced in the past. A couple of summers ago I visited the parks with my husband, using the military offer. A month later, I went with my parents and sisters. They were supposed to visit the parks at the same time with us, but something came up so they had to reschedule. Since they were unable to visit on the original date, they still had the military offer tickets I had purchased for them. I, however, had already used mine.

    The Cast Member I spoke with said that they were fine to use the military offer so long as I was still there with them to show my military ID. I purchased a standard ticket for myself and visited with them. The only thing we had to do was show the Cast Member my military ID, at the Main Entrance, when we arrived on the first day of our visit.

    Cory, I hope my experience helps answer your question. If you have any other questions I recommend giving the Ticket Service line a call. A Cast Member there will be more than happy to help answer any other questions you may have.
