Does the Disney’s Armed Forces Salute military sponsor need to be with their guests at all times?
No! (with one exception)
Once the Disney Armed Forces Salute tickets are activated the party may split up. For example some go to Epcot and some to the Magic Kingdom (or Disneyland/California Adventure), or even use the tickets on entirely different days through the end date of the Salute offer period.
The Military Sponsor’s ID is checked only upon ticket activation.
This used to not be the case at the Disneyland Resort, where until 2012 they required the military member to enter the theme parks with their guests each time.
Disney World however has never required the member to accompany their guests after Salute ticket activation.
What’s the one exception? At Disneyland the Salute tickets are activated during the first theme park entrance, not at a separate ticket window prior. So your whole party must enter the same park the first time. You can then immediately split up if desired (some going to the other park).
