    I plan to visit Disney Florida in next month with my husband (military) and friends. Can we buy the Disney World tickets at a military base in California so we can make reservations ahead of time? Are we able to buy the Genie+ at the same time too?

    Hey there, Amy! Welcome to planDisney! Wow! Your trip date is just around the river bend (as my friend, Pocahontas says!) I bet you all are so excited and are counting down the days until your arrival. I am so excited for you and your family!

    Since your trip is right around the corner Amy, I highly recommend purchasing your military rate tickets today. You can purchase Armed Forces Salute Tickets with Genie+ attached to them, you have to option of purchasing 4, or 5-day park hopper tickets. You can definitely purchase them at your nearest military installation in California. I always purchase ours from our Leisure Travel Office on post. You will receive paper vouchers that say "exchange certificate" on them, and they will have a barcode and number code on the back, which you can link to everyone that is in your traveling party. Make sure you hold on to those certificates because you will have to take them with you to Florida. Once you arrive at Walt Disney World, stop by any of the Guest Relations offices at any of the four theme parks, or Guest Relations at Disney Springs. Mention that you have those certificates and want to activate them. At that time, you or your husband will need to present your military I.D. to verify your status, and the tickets will be activated. You won't have to do this at each park you visit, just that one time. Make sure you ask Guest Relations about the military discount for MemoryMaker, a Disney PhotoPass product. You will have all of the photos you take from rides, and any you take with a Cast Member. 

    Amy, I hope you and your traveling party have the most magical time visiting Walt Disney World soon!
