    Please help! A question regarding Military Discount Passes

    My entire family, (kids, grandkids) are going in a few weeks to Disneyland for a week. A friend of mine in the military offered to purchase the discounted military park-hopper passes for us. Will we be able to use them if he is not with us when we enter the park? I cannot seem to find out that information.
    Thanks for any help!

    He can buy them for friends, but will need to go to the park with them(you).

    I assume that he would be buying them before hand for you?

    By the letter of the law, the serviceman is supposed to be present when presenting the tickets for entry; however, I do also purchase military discounted tickets and have never been asked for ID or otherwise challenged when entering the park.

    Yes, he would be buying them for us on base here in Washington but would not be going to the park with us. As good as the deal is ($99.00 for an adult 3-day Park Hopper) we don't want to purchase them, get to the park and be told that he or a military person needs to be with us.

    Yes, you are supposed to be stopped at the first use of the discounted ticket. You will then exchange the printed paper for an actual Disneyland ticket for re-entry on the same/other days.

    I have bought and used the military tickets (my husband is in the army) I did have to show my military id when changing my tickets in. so if he is not going with you I would say its probably better to not have him get them for you. hope you have a great trip!!!

    I have a friend who bought these for her family last year, and she did have to be there and present ID.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    Re: Please help! A question regarding Military Discount Passes

    check with your friend and see if they can find out what is issued. the standard ticket that is sold at the moral and welfare office is an actual ticket and no id is required at the gate (these were also available to civilians that worked for the military). Disney had some special offers that were only available to military and dependents. I've never used these, but my understanding is that a voucher is issued and this needs to be exchanged at the ticket booth for the actual tickets and id is checked then.

    Re: Please help! A question regarding Military Discount Passes

    We once ran into a problem a couple of years ago when the type of military discount limited the number of guests. Our friend purchased the tickets on the base. When we arrived to the park she had to present id and the tickets were only good for the military personnel who purchased the ticket and one "friend". Even though she had purchased additional tickets for friends, these were deemed invalid because the promotion only allowed one non-military person. (I don't recall the promotion's name) We ended up having to purchase a one day non-discounted ticket for the additional person. She then had to take the additional tickets back to the base to get her refund. We were directed to take care of this at guest services, not a ticket booth or a turnstile.

    Re: Please help! A question regarding Military Discount Passes

    It depends on what type of discount you are taking advantage of. The 3-day hopper for 99$ sounds like the Disney Military Salute. That promotion is strictly for active duty/retired/disabled only and the one who purchased them must be entering the park with the group. You will get a print out sheet that must be exchanged at the park entrance for a Disneyland ticket and they will check for military ID.

    However, there are also plain old "discount tickets" sold that I have bought for my extended family. Those look like regular Disneyland tickets. They have gone without me and never been asked for ID or anything. But these discounts are not nearly as good as the 99$/3day thing.

    A friend of mine is retired from the Air Force and bought the $99 3 day park hopper promotion tickets for him and his girlfriend last November and he DID have to show his military ID at the turnstile at first time use for him and girlfriend, but after that no ID was required. Make sure your military friend is with you otherwise I'm sure you'll have problems at the turnstile at first time use.

    The person who purchased the tickets must be present the FIRST day the tickets are used.
