    Hi! My mom is planning to purchase military tickets for us for our 2018 vacation. If she can't go at the last minute, can we change those tickets to regular park tickets since my husband and I aren't members of the military?

    Hi, Morgan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so happy that Walt Disney World Resort has offered Specially Priced Theme Park Tickets for Members of the U.S. Military! Although not currently available for purchase, if this Special Offer is continued into 2018, I believe the Theme Park Tickets are non-refundable. That being said, I think this would be on a case-by-case basis and you would have to explain the situation to Guest Services either over the phone or upon your arrival. Is there any way that your mom can wait to purchase the Theme Park Tickets until she knows for certain that she can join you in all the fun? If so, I would suggest waiting just to avoid the possible extra time it might take to get everything sorted out for you and your husband.

    I’m sorry that I can’t give you an answer with exact certainty, but many times these situations are handled in very individualized ways. I hope that your mom does get to vacation with you and that you all make magical memories together! Have a wonderful time and please visit us again soon,
