Welcome to Military Disney Tips!
You've found the number one site on the Internet for Disney Military Discount Information.
We are military and fully understand all the ins and outs of these sometimes complicated and confusing discounts. We've been there, done that, and got the Mickey tee-shirt.
There are lots of other great Disney sites out there and they should play an important part in your Disney vacation planning, but don't get your Disney Military Discount Information second hand from civilians!
The Walt Disney Company is currently offering their Armed Forces Salute, which features highly discounted theme park tickets and resort rooms.
Military members are eligible for Discounted Disney World Tickets plus great rates at the Shades of Green Resort (an Armed Forces Recreation Center) as well as other hotels both on and off Disney World property that offer military discounts. The Armed Forces Vacation Club also offers military discounted vacation rentals in the Orlando Florida - Disney area.
We are dedicated to providing tips and advice for military members and their families on how to take advantage of all the great military discounts available on Walt Disney World vacations that are exclusively available to the military and DoD community.
This site offers great advice on how save money on, and enjoy your vacation at Walt Disney World! A great place to start exploring is on our page dedicated to Disney World Military Discounts, or our Shades of Green Resort page

How Does Disney World Free Dining Compare To The Disney Armed Forces Salute?
Since Walt Disney World announced a free dining offer last week for dates from 2 through 25 September 2013, I’ve had quite a few questions as whether this is a good deal compared to Disney’s Armed Forces Salute.
And The Answer Is…
Sorry, but there is no cut and dried easy answer, every case is different. There are lots of variables such as, the number in your party (adults and kids 3-9), the length of your vacation, resort level desired (value, moderate, deluxe), and your eating habits on vacation.
Free Dining Specifics
In order to get the free dining added to your room reservation, you need to be paying the full non-discounted rate for your Disney resort room. You cannot combine free dining with the Disney Armed Forces Salute room discounts. And you must purchase (with your room) at least a 2-Day Magic Your Way Base Ticket for everyone in your room, at the full general public rate.
I Called In The Expert
I touched base with Amy from Ears of Experience on this one. Ears of Experience is my recommended Disney travel agent. Amy Said:
“General speaking larger parties and or those staying for longer periods of time will save with the free dining deal. Those there for shorter trips are better off with the Disney Armed Forces Salute.”
A 4-day 5-night vacation Sunday through Thursday night at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, for 2 adults and 2 kids.
