What Readers Say about MDT:

We are at WDW right now and I just wanted to say thanks again for the very prompt and ACCURATE info you put out. Sometimes even the ITT or even Disney folks slip up, but you keed the record straight! Outstanding job!!! - Gerald R.

We recently returned from our WDW vacation. There was 17 of us (my family/grandkids & my brother’s family/grandkids). Needless to say…….It took some planning! I received Steve's book for Christmas of 2017, read the blogs/FB posts and asked him several questions this past year. I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help and insight! Your book is wonderful, and all of your tips/suggestions are very much appreciated. With all the technology and WDW constantly changing, I really don’t know how people can plan or go there without an expert’s help! So, to anyone thinking of planning a Disney vacation, especially Military……….read everything Steve puts out! - Jennifer H.

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.

When is the best time to visit Disney World in 2018 for you and your military family?

Disney's current Armed Forces Salute runs through 19 December 2018.

You'll need to decide when would be the best time to use your Disney military discount at Disney's Orlando Florida theme park - Walt Disney World.

The great thing about the Internet is the variety of sites available on any given topic. Here at Military Disney Tips I spend my time monitoring all the ins and outs of Disney military discounts and other Orlando area military savings.

I spend lots of time answering reader questions via email, on facebook, and my blog. That makes for a very busy part time job for me, so I often recommend other great sites that focus on other aspects of the Disney Universe.

When I'm deciding what dates would be good for my family vacation at Disney World there is one site that I head straight to in order to decide. That site is!

As the name implies Your First Visit is a site geared towards first time Walt Disney World visitors, but the information on the site is so detailed and so well researched that even seasoned WDW travelers like me will find new info.

Dave at YFV is one of those guys with a 10-pound brain, you'll find a plethora of charts and graphs backed by detailed data and analysis. Some of the best products on the site are his Date Planning pages! These are what I use to determine the best dates for me to go to WDW.
