Frequently Asked Questions

 

Top Gift Membership Questions


Are memberships active at the time of purchase?

Yes, all memberships are active at the time of purchase, whether they’re a gift or for yourself. If you would like the membership to start on the first visit, we recommend to give a gift card with the amount intended for the membership.


I purchased a gift membership online, how will they be notified?

To not spoil any holiday surprises, we will not be mailing any postcard notifications from November 23 through December 25. Gift recipients will start receiving postcards about their memberships in the mail in the beginning of January. If you would like to send something sooner to your gift recipient, please email membership@zoo.org for a printable PDF (only available until 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 24).


Where are you located?

Our urban oasis is located about 5 miles north of downtown Seattle, in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood.


I don’t know the gift recipients contact information; can I still purchase a gift membership?

You are able to use your contact information instead—but this will prevent your gift recipient from receiving the notification postcard of your gift membership purchase. We recommend you or the gift recipient update their address as soon as possible in order to receive their full benefits, like the digital MyZoo magazine and other emails.


How can the gift recipient start making reservations?

For gift recipients who are new members: In order for the gift recipient to place member reservations, they will need to visit shop.zoo.org and create a new online account using the following information: Name, phone number, email and member ID number. Please ensure the gift recipient's phone number and email are provided when purchasing the gift membership. The member ID number will be listed on the purchase confirmation email, which is emailed to only the gift purchaser immediately following the payment step. Once the gift recipient has logged into their new account, they can click "Tickets" and scroll down to "Member Reservation" to plan their next zoo visit.

For gift recipients who are existing/past members: If you are gifting a renewal on an existing membership, you will receive a member ID number in your confirmation that does not match your recipient’s online reservation account. Tell your recipient their existing member ID number will be linked and extended, and if it does not work when they try, to contact the membership office to expedite it.


At what point can the WildLanterns discount be used?

Immediately after purchase! New gift membership recipients will first need to create an online account on shop.zoo.org (see instructions above). If you are renewing for a current or past member, they will just need to log into their existing account. Once they are logged in as a member, the ticket prices will be automatically adjusted to reflect 20% off their WildLanterns tickets.


* Please note the membership office will be closed Thursday, November 26, 2020 and Friday, November 27, 2020 for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
