You offer a total of four free tickets. What if there are more people in my family?

You may purchase additional tickets by visiting a base MWR office.

My spouse is serving overseas. Can dependents visit the park without their service member?

Yes. 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 single parent serving overseas. My children are living with a relative. How can my kids visit?

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 am a service member from an Allied country, does this program apply to me?

No. The Waves of Honor Program only applies to U.S. military members.

What is Troop ID?

Troop ID is a credential issued by ID.me that allows verified members of the military community (e.g. Active Duty, Veterans, Retirees, Military Spouses and Military Family Members) to access programs intended exclusively for members of the military community. Please note that our brand partners may only accept certain subsegments of the military community for any particular offer. By way of example an “Active Duty” Troop ID holder may be eligible for certain offers while a “Military Family” Troop ID holder may not be eligible for that same offer.

What if I am having trouble validating my status with Troop ID?
