    I am a veteran. Can I purchase ride tickets at Disney world for my children without me going to the park

    Hello and welcome to planDisney Ken. Thanks for stopping by with your question about purchasing tickets. When my family visits the Walt Disney World Resort we love to save as much as possible. It’s only so we can have more to spend on Mickey-shaped snacks, to be honest. 

    You defended our country and I would like to thank you for your service and sacrifice to our great nation. And thankfully there are a couple of options for veterans and guests when it comes to discounts when visiting. Magic Your Way tickets are available for purchase while on base—these tickets you will not have to be present to activate these. You can also use this great resource for everything you need to know about Disney Military Tickets. Your children can add the tickets to their My Disney Experience App. This will allow them to make the park reservations for whichever dates they are visiting. These are always available for veterans.

    The 2024 Disney Military Salute Tickets do not have information available just yet. Historically you can begin to call about them starting the middle to end of November. In past years "Eligible Service Members" can purchase up to 6 of these heavily discounted tickets. Tickets purchased on-base will have to be activated in person with valid military identification. You can also find them on the Special Offers page. If your children cannot convince you to join them in the magic you can also purchase these using the Shades of Green Ticket Office. These tickets come pre-activated and if you don’t plan on going to the parks with them. This is the only way to get deeper discounts on tickets without being with them to activate the tickets. Making memories is very important to my family. And if you have the opportunity to visit with your children it is always a wonderful thing to see different age groups whittled down to 6-year-olds because we are all playing and having fun once we go through those turnstiles. 

    I hope you found this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to visit again anytime at planDisney.com and we will be happy to help. 

    Have a magical day, 

    Jeremy A.
