    Me and my two girlfriends are planning a trip sometime in October. One of my friends husband is an active military member. I wanted to know can my friend who has a spouse military Id can purchase tickets and does the husband have to be there to activate it

    Hiya Nina,

    Welcome to planDisney! A girlfriends trip to Walt Disney World Resort sounds like a dream! I have wanted to do that for quite a while, and you have inspired me to get started on that. I'm considering Sangria University at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and massages at the Grand Floridian Spa. I can see it in my mind; it is glorious and relaxing!

    Now before I start sending you a million suggestions for how to treat yourself during your girlfriends trip, let's get to your question. As a child of a retired veteran, I have used the Military Salute tickets before, so I'd be happy to help you out. As a spouse of an Eligible service member, your friend would be able to activate and use the Military Salute tickets without her spouse being present. She would also be able to purchase up to six additional tickets per year (as long as one of those is being used by her). All she will need to do is show her U.S. Military ID and the exchange vouchers she received at the time of purchase. After your friend purchases her tickets, make sure she links them to her My Disney Experience account and makes Disney Park Pass Reservations for the vacation. You still need valid Theme Park tickets and Disney Park Pass Reservations to enter a Walt Disney World Theme Park.

    I hope this was helpful, Nina! If you need any help or want to chat more about planning a girls' trip to Walt Disney World Resort, please come back to visit me.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
