The Walt Disney Company has extended the Armed Forces Salute Military Discount through September 2012

This page referrs to the 2010-2012 offer click here for the 2012-2013 offer details

Whoopie Goldberg Announced 18 April 2011 on Disney owned ABC Television's The View that Disney's Armed Forces Salute, Military Discounted Theme Park Tickets and Resort Rooms offer had been extended until September 2012. The current offer ends on 1 October 2011. Military members who used the current offer will again be able to these great discounts again the following year.

UPDATE - The offer keeps getting better. See here for the most up to date details

The Walt Disney Company has offered an Armed Forces Salute since the economic downturn in 2009 caused their resort room reservations and ticket sales to fall. These fantastic Military Discounts have been on both theme park tickets and resort rooms, and have allowed many military families to have a great vacation once the military member returns from a long deployment.

Each subsequent year after 2009 it's been hard to determine if there would be an offer for the next year. Disney announced the 2010 offer at the very end of December 2009 just prior to the end of the '09 offer. The 2010 offer originally only ran through 31 July 2010, and was later extended to 30 September.

In September 2010 Disney was continuing their repeated assertions that there would be no continuation of these military salute offers for the rest of 2010 or for 2011, and then on 4 October without any warning Disney announced a new room only discount, and there were lots of rumors and insider tips that a ticket discount was coming too. Then on 24 October Disney announced their ticket offer.

Universal Orlando has discontinued their military salute. But there was enough inertia behind Disney's offers to keep them going. Anheuser-Busch has offered their Here's to the Heroes Salute every year since 2005.
