How Disneyland’s 2017 Ticket Price Increase Affects Military Tickets

The big news recently on all the Disney sites was the expected February Disney Ticket Price Increase! 

In this post I’ll describe how this ticket price increase affects the military community with regards to the Disneyland tickets that are available to us.

It Depends On The Ticket Type

As you may know there are two different discounted Disneyland ticket types which are available to the military community for the California theme park destination.

They Are (click the links for more detailed info):

How Disneyland's 2017 Ticket Price Increase Affects Military Tickets

The Good News & The Bad News

First the good news.

The Disney Armed Forces Salute is a set offer for a defined time period, with set prices. The Salute ticket prices are not affected by this recent ticket increase. The current Salute runs through 19 December 2017.

Prices for the Salute will remain:

Disneyland 2017 Armed Forces Salute Prices

  • Three-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $156.00
  • Four-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $181.00

Disneyland 2018 Armed Forces Salute Prices

  • Three-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $168.00
  • Four-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $188.00

The Disneyland Armed Forces Salute tickets come in only one type:

  • The theme Park Hopper Option, which allows you to visit both parks on the same day

Now the Bad News.

The Regular Military Discounted Disneyland ticket’s prices are based upon the regular gate price, so these prices are affected!

I have updated the new prices on my Regular Military Discounted Disneyland ticket page.


Disneyland tickets expire at the end of the year you purchase them (or the next year, if you purchase them close to the end of the year). Current regular tickets expire at the end of 2017. Completely unused tickets can still be turned in toward the price of new tickets,

An Even Better Deal

So, for the rest of 2017 the Disney Armed Forces Salute  tickets just became an even better deal! Their prices are unchanged, while regular military tickets have gone up.

For 2018 the Salute ticket prices have now been set. If you are going in 2018 and will be using Regular Military Discounted DIsneyland Tickets, you should purchase them before their price goes up in February 2018!

This happens every year (sometimes twice, there is always the potential for a summer increase as well).

The Disney Armed Forces Salute ends on 19 December 2017, so get with Ears of Experience, my recommended Disney Only, Fee Free Travel Agent and start planning your vacation now!
