    We will be traveling to Walt Disney World in November. My niece will be joining us. She has a military ID as her father is active duty Army. Are we able to purchase and use the military salute ticket or does he have to be with us on the trip?

    Hi Kimberly, welcome to planDisney!

    A heartfelt thanks to your military-connected family for their service to our country. An early November visit means you and your niece will get a sneak peek of some holiday magic at Walt Disney World Resort. Disney Springs is a great place to start that holiday wish list!    

    Disney Military Salute Tickets offer star-spangled savings for Eligible Service Members and their families. An Eligible Service Member and/or their spouse may purchase up to six Disney Military Salute Tickets in total each year. These special tickets require an additional activation step, which applies to the next part of our conversation. Your niece cannot purchase or activate her own Disney Military Salute Ticket; however, her father can purchase a ticket for her via the Shades of Green ticket office, which comes pre-activated and ready for use. He can purchase up to six of these pre-activated, patriotic tickets for your party, if desired. Disney Military Salute Tickets purchased at a base ticket office, on the other hand, must be activated in person at Guest Relations or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs before use. In-person activation requires the Eligible Service Member or spouse to show a valid and active US military ID.

    To use a pre-activated Disney Military Salute Ticket for your November trip, Kimberly, your niece's ticket must be linked to her My Disney Experience account using the confirmation number found in the confirmation documents or on the ticket. She must also make a theme park reservation for each park day. To enter a theme park using a Disney Military Salute Ticket, your niece can scan the physical card, a MagicBand, or a Disney MagicMobile pass that's been downloaded to a mobile device using the My Disney Experience mobile app

    I love that you are including your niece in your magical adventures, Kimberly. My family takes advantage of Disney Military Salute Tickets each year and I'm happy to answer any other questions you have about them. 

    Choose magic,
