Military park hopper question
I read the terms of the military park hopper and it wasn't clear whether the military member has to accompany the group and show ID for the group to use the tickets. If my sister (who's in the military) buys the tickets can I use them if she's not present? Also are these tickets available at bases across the country or just in the western US? Thanks.

I believe your sister would have to accompany you. Check out this thread: http://mousepad.mouseplanet.com/show...ilitary+hopper

Here is what is says, in part:
"Valid only for active duty or retired US military personnel (or their spouses) of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reservists. Disney Military Promotional tickets may be used ONLY by the Eligible Service Members, spouses, or other family members or friends for whom they are purchased. In addition, a valid and active US Military (or spouse) ID of military member ticket holder or accompanying military member (or spouse) is required for admission."
That last sentence leads me to believe that she will need to be with you. This is the wording/policy for the current hoppers, which expire on 9/30/12. I do not know if it will change at all on the ones that go into effect on 10/1/12, since I haven't seen one of those vouchers yet.

I was curious after the current arrests for scams, so I was poking around Craig'slist in Sacramento. Anyway, there was someone selling military hoppers, noting ID was required, because she had been unable to use them at the gate and had to buy additional tickets at DL. YMMV. I know my dad (federal ID) would have to show his ID at the gate regularly to use the ticket office tickets (his office was on base and they were allowed to purchase and use them).
