    Hello! I am planing on going to Disney in July and I am purchasing two FL Resident 4-day summer tickets. We have friends that want to go as well and I was wondering if I could buy them Salute to Service tickets since I am also active duty military?

    Welcome to planDisney, Savannah, and a great big salute from Mickey and me! We thank you for your family's service, and I'm honored to help you with your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. You have a fantastic plan with those Florida Resident Disney Summer Magic Tickets. You'll be able to enjoy all four theme parks, which is how my family likes to do Disney. My number one tip is to go early. If you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel or Shades of Green, you will be eligible for Early Theme Park Entry, so set that alarm and get ready to enjoy the magic!

    I spoke with a Disney military specialist at Shades of Green, and she said that the active military member must also be using a Disney Military Salute Ticket when purchasing military tickets for guests. You would act as the military sponsor, so you must use the same ticket type. Unfortunately, you couldn't buy military tickets for this trip for your friends. But wait! I have an idea.

    Even though that's not the news you were hoping for, Savannah, your friends would be eligible for the current 4-Day, 4-Park Magic Ticket. This ticket is for non-Florida residents, and you can check the specific offer details and dates to ensure they will work for your visit. The main difference between this ticket and yours is that yours will require Theme Park Reservations while theirs will not. I'm sending pixie dust and Florida sunshine that this ticket will be practically perfect for your pals.

    I hope you make some magical memories on your upcoming visit, Savannah. Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
