I am a single parent serving overseas. My children are living with a relative. How can my kids visit?
Yes, for the Active Duty offer. You need to verify the active duty members military status using Troop ID online. While, spouses & family members of military personnel can create a Troop ID, the complimentary/discounted tickets are only accessible to those accounts verified as a service member. Once verified you can print out up to three direct dependent single day admission tickets.
I am a service member from an Allied country, does this program apply to me?
For the Active Duty offer, the primary caregiver should contact the Guest Relations Department of the park they'd like to visit. They will make accommodations for minor dependents. Proof of military status and deployment is required.
I received my tickets via email but accidentally deleted the original email. How do I get my tickets again?
No. The Waves of Honor Program only applies to U.S. military members.
What is ID.me?

This SeaWorld account is separate from your ID.me account, however you may have used the same email address and password.
