In honor of our troops, both the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will not only be offering U.S. Military special discounted room reservation rates, but they are also offering them promotional military ticket options.

The brave men and women who serve our country can purchase specially priced tickets from August 25, 2014, through September 30, 2015 for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. (Disneyland tickets can actually be purchased through October 1, 2015.) These special tickets may be purchased by active and retired U.S. military personnel (which includes active and retired members of the U.S. Coast Guard, National Guard and Reservists). Active and retired U.S. military personnel can purchase the Disney Military Promotional Tickets for not only themselves, but also up to five additional family members or friends. Keep in mind that there is an expiration date for these tickets; they must be used by October 3, 2015, and they are non-transferable. Valid military identification will be required for purchase and use.

At Walt Disney World, there are three different Military Promotional Ticket options, which include:

  • Disney 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets with Park Hopper Option for $177 each, plus tax
  • Disney 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets with Water Park Fun and More Option for $177 each, plus tax
  • Disney 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets with Park Hopper and Water Park Fun and More Options for $207 each, plus tax

These tickets are may be used from September 28, 2014 through October 3, 2015; however, there are a few blackout dates that include December 22, 2014, through January 2, 2015, and March 29 through April 9, 2015.

At Disneyland Resort, there is one Military Promotional Ticket option:

  • Disney Military Promotional 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $132 each

In addition, for those who would like to book a Disney resort hotel stay with their vacation, both Walt Disney and Disneyland Resort will be offering discounted room rates for active and retired U.S. military personnel. This offer is valid for stays most nights from Sept. 28, 2014 through Oct. 3, 2015, with the exceptions of November 27 through November 29, 2014, December 24 through December 31, 2014, and March 30 through April 4, 2015.

For more information about this Military promotion, you may either visit a participating U.S. military base ticket office (which I’ve heard is the best course of action, especially when you want to purchase tickets), or you may call the Walt Disney World Resort at (407) 939-7830 or the Disneyland Resort at (714) 520-7088. More information can also be found at disneymilitaryoffers.com.

    The Swan and Dolphin offer discounts for Military. They also offer discounts for State and Federal employees, Teachers,School Support Staff, University Employees, and Nurses and other Hospital employes. A quick search shows some rooms are only 139 with the same offer for Military—that’s a BIG advantage for a full service onsite hotel.

  • Do they ever offer discounts for police or firemen/women?

  • For military members looking to stay on site, if money is the primary concern, Shades of Green will almost certainly be the cheapest or one of the cheapest options (even including the military discount on other rooms), in addition to being a very nice hotel. SoG’s rates are dependent on rank, of course, so it’s a better deal for lower level enlisted, but the prices *don’t* fluctuate with time of year, or if it happens to be a weekend night. So when my brother and sister in law were in Disney World the week after easter, SoG was actually cheaper than a Value resort, despite being comparable to a moderate or deluxe.

    Also, you might want to mention, there *are* blackout dates on the Armed Forces Salute tickets (the ones you detail above), at least for WDW. There are very few, but that’s still an important thing that people who intend to use them should not miss. Like for instance, taking from the example above— Easter is a blackout date, and I believe the week prior.
