    Hi, my mom and I are planning a trip with my children. I am a military spouse, so to get the deals, I have to be the one to book everything, and do so over the phone. Will I have an issue using her credit card to book?

    First, Ashley, thank you to your family for your service. Your spouse's dedication to protecting our country is admirable, and I know your whole family makes sacrifices for our freedom. 

    I am so glad you came to planDisney with your question as you plan a vacation with your mom and kids! Walt Disney World Resort has a few offers currently available for military families to make your time with your family magical.

    Disney continues to offer Disney Military Salute Tickets in 2024. These are 4-, 5- or 6-day tickets with the ability to add options like Photo Pass, Park Hopper, and Park Hopper Plus. With Photo Pass, you can download all the photos capturing the special moments during your trip. You can also have a blast with special features like Tiny World Magic Shots and classic and animated Magic Shots. They are all so much fun! With Park Hopper, you can bounce from park to park during the day. And Park Hopper Plus adds water parks or even miniature golf to the fun. These tickets are available at participating US military sales outlets for eligible service members and spouses to purchase for use by themselves and with family members and friends. You would have to ask at the base about credit card payment options.

    Just a note: Disney Military Salute Tickets require theme park reservations, so make sure you select your parks and days for easy entry into the theme parks.

    There are also additional ticket options available through Shades of Green, located within the Walt Disney World Resort property. You can request these with an online form before your visit. These are purchased directly through Shades of Green, so you would need to check the form for their payment options. 

    Walt Disney World Resort also has special offers on resort stays for military families. If you enjoy your time in the magic with one of these offers, you can easily have your mother's credit card on file for payment. At check-in at your resort, you would need to show your military identification, and your mother would need to show her identification to use her credit card. 

    I hope your trip includes a visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Muppet*Vision 3D. I love Sam the Eagle and ‘A Salute to All Nations, But Mostly America.’

    Adventure is Out There!
