    I am a military resident and want to know if I can purchase a combination of military resident tickets for myself and spouse and then military promotional tickets to cover my nonresident family for our trip to Disney World ?

    Hi Teresa! Thank you for visiting planDisney, and for your service. I am happy to help answer your question today!

    As a service member, you can purchase up to six Disney Military Salute Tickets a year. I spoke to a ticket agent at Shades of Green Resort, and unfortunately, you will have to purchase a Salute ticket for yourself for your other family members to be able to use them. What you can do if you want to continue with the military resident tickets is to purchase discounted Magic Your Way tickets for your family members. They are not as steep of a discount as the Salute tickets, but they are still a great deal, and you won't have to activate them at Guest Relations like the Salute tickets. These tickets can be purchased at ITT/MWR like the Salute tickets, or from Shades of Green directly. These tickets will also require theme park reservations before visiting your first theme park.

    Visiting Walt Disney World Resort in August will require a day (or two!) of water park fun! Consider purchasing the Park Hopper Plus tickets, and add on a day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. This park features the largest wave pool in North America the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool! Enjoy a lap around Castaway Creek before stopping by Snack Shack for a DOLE Whip float! The hot sun will require a shaded oasis, check out renting an umbrella for the day or splurging on a Beachcomber Shack. This Enchanting Extra sells out fast, so make sure you have reservations in 60 days in advance!

    Teresa, I hope all of this information was helpful! Thank you for stopping by planDisney. If you need additional pixie dust for your upcoming visit, feel free to send me questions! You've got a friend in me!

    Happy Planning!
