What Readers Say about MDT:

I can honestly say that learning about Military Disney Tips is the only reason I am so prepared for my family’s upcoming, once in a lifetime trip. If it wasn’t for all the wonderful advise I would not have been prepared for the 2017 Salute to the Military release nor would we have received a pretty awesome 30% discount off our room. I have so many notes and tips stored away to make our trip magical so thank you, thank you, thank you. - Lisa L.

I just discovered Military Disney Tips recently and I’m so glad I did. I had no idea how wonderful Shades of Green seems to be. I’m so exciting about our first visit. I didn’t know all the wonderful tips for Military families. I have referred to this website many times during the planning of our upcoming trip in March. Thank you for all you do. It’s truely great!! - Michelle S.

I came upon this page during our initial stages of planning our February 2017 Disney World trip and it has been so extremely helpful not only in its content, but when I have a question, I know I can count on Steve to get the answer and get it quickly. It has been my go-to website and I would not be so prepared and informed without it. This website is a staple for this vacation and for our future trips (hopefully!!!) to Disney. - Amy M.

I’ve been to WDW many, many times, but I always learn something new from different websites. This website is especially helpful, since it caters to military personnel. Since the military population is such a small part of normal website’s readership, nobody else puts much effort into military-specific information. MilitaryDisneyTips does that for us. I used to have to dig through a few different websites to finally find the information that I needed, but it’s here, front and center for us. - Jeremy Z.

Just taking a minute for a HUGE thank you for all you do. Your invaluable info gave my family (7 of us including the grandkids) the BEST 2 week Disney World vacation last Oct. - Krissy P.

Military Disney Tips is my go to site for current and correct information for the military community. As soon as Disney made their announcement for the Armed Forces Salute continuing Through 2017 it was on MDT. No speculation, just the actual facts that will help us make important decisions for our vacation budget. - SherryAnne S.


Armed Forces Vacation Club


The Armed Forces Vacation Club (sometimes shortened to just AFVC) is another great benefit of being in the U.S. military! Great discounts are available on condo rentals worldwide at very reasonable rates for military members.

Seven night resort condo vacation rentals, many in the Orlando Florida area, are available from $359.00, that works out to just under 52 Dollars per night!

There are many offerings in and around the Orlando/Kissimmee area, within a short driving distance to the Walt Disney World Resort.

If you are planning on a week-long stay at Disney World or in the Orlando area and really want to save on your room this is the way to go. As long as you have transportation (a Rental Car or your own car) and you won't miss the Disney theming in and around your resort you'll save a bunch.

Disney-World-AFVC-Resorts

The Armed Forces Vacation Club offers space available rentals to DoD and affiliated personnel.

Condos sleep from 2 to 6 normally, sometimes more. Offerings include one or two bedrooms with full or partial kitchens. These vacation condos are located in very nice resorts with pools.

You'll save even more preparing your own meals, or at lest some of them, in the kitchens!

You can search listings on their web page and view all the specifics of each resort. I've not used this service but I do know people at my Squadron who have and they've been very satisfied and gone back for multiple trips. 

Armed Forces Vacation Club Web Site

To search AFVC:

Use the orange search box on the left
Select United States in the Choose a Region box
Select FLORIDA - Orlando Area in the Choose a Destination box
Click on your desired month

When your results come up you can sort by various factors like: Rating, Size, Price, Date, or City. I like to sort by City, I look at the Kissimmee and Orlando listings, especially those with Lake Buena Vista in the name.

For each individual resort you'll see available dates and room types with a button to book those dates. Also you'll find a "Learn More" button for additional information on the resort including: a list of Amenities, Highlights, Directions, and Additional Information. You can then Google search the name of the resort for more information.


Here's an example:

Searching for the resort in Google I found their site:

The 1 Bedroom is a 1 Bedroom Villa:


 

Eligibility:


AFVC has a military contingency clause in case. In the event of a military contingency, you may be eligible for a full refund of your reservation fee.
