Disney Military Discounts For 2012
The news that Disney has extended their very popular Armed Forces Salute Military Discounts through 30 September 2012, has been out for a while. This offer includes both steeply discounted theme park tickets and room rates.
Yesterday I received exciting news from the Walt Disney World theme park ticket windows.
There is a great new change to the military theme park ticket policy. This is an official Disney ticketing department policy change which has been distributed to all ticket windows.
UPDATE – This great Disney military discount offer has changed several times. This particular revision only lasted about one week. Click this link for the most up to date details
Military members may now purchase the Military Salute Tickets as often as they wish as long as no more than six (6) tickets are sold in each transaction.
All other details of the 2011-2012 ticket offer remain the same. See here for full details on the Disney Armed Forces Salute.
An important consideration is that the 4-Day Disney Military Promotion Tickets may be upgraded to Premium Annual or Annual Passes. And for Florida residents to Premium Annual, Annual, Seasonal and Weekday Select Passes. You may upgrade the tickets by paying the difference between what you have already paid for the military ticket and the price of the pass you are upgrading to.
This needs to be accomplished at Disney’s ticket counters at the regular rates of the above passes. If you do upgrade to the above passes they will expire 1 year from the date of first use of the military ticket.
So if your stay at Disney will require more than 4 days in the parks or you are returning for a second visit within the 1 year time frame, compare the cost of additional Military Salute tickets to the prices below.
Premium Annual Pass Adult $669.89 / Child (3-9) $603.86
Annual Pass Adult $531.44 / Child (3-9) $479.25
Florida Resident Premium Annual Adult $531.44 / Child (3-9) $479.25
Florida Residents Annual Adult $403.64 / Child (3-9) $364.23
Florida Resident Seasonal Adult $275.84 / Child (3-9) $249.21
Florida Resident Select Seasonal Adult $185.31 / Child (3-9) $167.21
Military Salute Ticket Prices
Four-Day Park Hopper Tickets or Four-Day Water Park and More Tickets for $138.00,
Four-Day Park Hopper Tickets plus the Water Park and More Option for $165.00.
Just an example: 3 of the 4-Day military tickets (12 days worth) go for $414.00 while 4 tickets (16 days worth) go for $552.00 compared to an adult annual pass (non Florida resident) sells for $531.44.
You’ll just have to access your particular situation and decide what’s most cost effective for your particular situation.
I will probably buy the $138 Hoppers and upgrade them to Florida Resident Seasonal passes on my second visit for an extra 137. 84.
What do you think will work best for you?
