- Using the Walt Disney World Theme Park Reservation System
Disney’s Theme Park Reservation System requires linked tickets in order fo you to make reservations.
(Updated August 2021)
Theme Park Reservations
You need a linked ticket in your My Disney Experience account in order to make your Theme Park Reservations.
If you wait to purchase your tickets after arrival, you may miss out on your desired theme parks on the day you want to do them or even getting into some of them at all! And only the less desirable rides will be available after arrival. Or The Theme Park you want to go to on a certain day might be full!
Ideally you should buy your tickets ahead of time from your Base Ticket Office or one that ships, so that you’ll have them well ahead of time.
But what if you are not stationed on or live near a base with a ticket office or it’s closed?
You can pre-purchase your tickets from Shades of Green or another Ticket Office that ships!
Shades of Green
Shades of Green has a great option to waiting till arrival to buy your tickets.
Just email the Shades of Green’s Ticket Office to purchase your tickets and have them sent to you via FedEx (for a fee, $12 for 2020).
To purchase your tickets ahead just send an email to [email protected] They will then email you the required forms and directions for completing the transaction as well as their current price list.
Note: Shades of Green will not sell tickets more than 6 months prior to the date you tell them you are traveling. (This policy is currently not in effect due to the narrow extended purchase window for 2020 Salute Tickets 19 Dec 20 – 14 Feb 21) and the 9 month window to use the tickets in. This policy could come back for any 2021 Salute offer…
Kudos to Shades of Green
This is a great solution to a problem that has plagued Shades’ guests for a long time.
Other Base Ticket Offices
Many have noted slow response time by Shades of Green (I have not experienced it, but others have). Other bases have been praised for their fast service!
