    We are taking my daughter's friend whose dad is active duty military. He said that he is able to get all of us tickets on base but am wondering will I have issues using them since we do not hold military ID's, just the teen that will be with us.

    Hiya Laura,

    Welcome to planDisney! I love that you are taking your daughter and her friend to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Core memories are made at Walt Disney World Resort, and I'm sure your daughter will make many of them during your visit. I recommend getting a Capture Your Moment  private photoshoot for the trip if you can get a reservation. Your daughter and her friend can take pictures together for 20 minutes with a Disney PhotoPass photographer. The photos are always incredible, and they take care to get the best shot without tons of crowds in the background. It would be a great way to commemorate their friend's trip!

    Now, on to your question, Laura! First, it is fantastic that your daughter's friend's dad is willing to purchase Disney Military Salute Tickets for you all. Eligible Service Members can buy up to six Theme Park tickets a year at the special offer rate that can be shared with family and friends. When I was younger, my parents have done this for our family and friends' vacations. Unfortunately, Laura, one of the six Theme Park tickets must be used and activated by the eligible Service Member or their spouse. So unless he (or his spouse) accompanies you all on the trip, you cannot utilize the Disney Military Salute Tickets for your upcoming trip.

    I hope this was helpful and that you have the information you need to finalize your plans for your upcoming trip. If you need anything else, please come back and see us. We would love to help ensure you have the most incredible trip filled with core memories.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
