    Staying at SOG. Buying Stars & Stripes option. Is it necessary to purchase prior to our trip? Or can we purchase upon arrival? Hubby is coming home from Iraq. Trying to be prepared and plan ahead . Thanks! I love you all and read daily.

    Hi there Christina!  What a great welcome home your husband will have at WDW.   The answer to your question is that it is absolutely not necessary to purchase your Stars and Stripes admission ticket before you arrive.  In fact, I'm not even sure you can purchase it ahead of time if you tried.  We've stayed at Shades of Green before and to purchase our park tickets we had to show our military ID's.  Years ago, I tried to purchase our discounted tickets before arrival and was told that it couldn't be done.  Unless something has changed, I think you'll have to wait until arrival to get your tickets.  It shouldn't pose any problem though.

    Have a wonderful time and please give your husband a high five for me and a great big thanks!  Enjoy having him home!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
