We tried to get retired military ticket for my dad, who is a vet but never voluntarily joined the military. They said No way, Jose!

...and they thanked him for his "valiant" service.

I sincerely doubt that whether or not he volunteered for the military has any influence on it. When I went in the service in 1968 there was a very active draft going on, so that is not an unusual situation. However, the discounts are for people that are currently on active duty or those that stayed in for 20 years and retired from military service after that.

Anyone that stayed in the military for 20 years absolutely deserves time at a Disney Park. I would have been in a padded room by now. That was just a joke...no shooting please! :D

FIL works on it! If he bought them, could we use them? Or do you need to provide ID?
That I do not know. Sorry! I guess if he has the ability to buy stuff on base, it might work. Is he military? It's been a long time since I was in the military (41 years), things may have changed a lot since then.

You know I had never thought about that distinction before...duho_O
My bro-in-law is 11 years in the USAF (and planning to stay through retirement), so we were able to stay at SOG and get those park hoppers with them last year. He's earned every bit of that discount over the last few years.

As I understand it, the ID card holder must be present in order to use the tickets purchased on the base. Up to 6 tickets can be purchased, but one must be used by the ID holder. However, the ID holder can be a military dependant

Yes, this was our experience with military discount tickets. My bro in law had to be with us to validate the tickets before we entered the parks for the first time. After that we were good to go.

I hope people read that last sentence!!

The person who is in the military need not be there, just the ID holder (e.g. the wife of a service man. :))

We used military tickets at Disneyland and our kids were asked for ID the first day when we activated them. Someone with the tickets must have a military ID as policy is to ask to see it and confirm the purchase.
