  • Thank goodness, finally a 5-day ticket option for military. The 4-day went up by $13.

    • I’ll take that 5 day hike… doesn’t really seem like much. Really excited for the 5 day option now which I’ll definitely do when I return from my current deployment. And 40% off a deluxe sounds very tempting. What about the DLR discounts?

      • That 40% off can go up substantially depending on the time of year that you go. We routinely get military discounts of up to 60% off. My wife and I pretty much only stay club level deluxe now for that reason. The DLR discounts are very similar – we got a 45% discount at the Disneyland Hotel the week before Thanksgiving.

        • Hotel isn’t an issue for DLR since my family is from OC so I always stay back at home. But will definitely give a Deluxe hotel a look at for our next WDW trip.

  • Are these tickets purchased at shades of green like in the past?

    • You can, but they charge tax there. If you get them on a military post it’s tax free.

      • I don’t believe that is correct. If you buy the tickets from a Disney theme park ticket window, you pay sales tax.

        However, Shades of Green is an Armed Forces Recreation Center, and you don’t pay sales tax for anything purchased there. Lines can be long at the Shades of Green ticket office, but you don’t need to be staying at Shades of Green to buy tickets there: http://www.shadesofgreen.org/ATS.htm

  • I’m just curious who these discounts apply to: active military only? Retired? I have family who have served, and these discounts would really help them with a WDW trip!

    • – Disney Military Promotional Tickets may be purchased at participating U.S. military sales outlets by Eligible Service Members (defined below) or their spouses (but not both), for use by themselves and other family members and friends, as provided herein. These Tickets may not be otherwise transferred, distributed or resold.

      – “Eligible Service Members” are active or retired members of the U.S. Military, including the National Guard, Reservists and the U.S. Coast Guard. Spouses of Military Service Members also qualify if they are able to present valid and active U.S. Military IDs in the absence of active Military Personnel.

      – The actual prices charged at the individual U.S. military base ticket offices for Disney Military Promotional Tickets may be less than the prices set forth above.
      Participating military sales outlets must require that Eligible Service Members (or their spouses) present valid military identification to purchase Disney Military Promotional Tickets.

      – Subject to certain exceptions, Disney 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets for admission to the Walt Disney World Resort are not valid until activated by the Eligible Services Members (or their spouses) at Walt Disney World theme park ticket windows.

      That’s from their 2016 info.

  • Swan and Dolphin offers decent discounts for Military.
    They also offer discounts for Nurses and Teachers…Support Staff like IT used to be allowed but I don’t see that explicitly mentioned. I just had a University ID and they took it.

  • Incase anyone is staying at or considering buying there tickets from Shades of Green they are tax free. Bought our tickets there in june. They are a military resort.
