You don’t need to wish upon a star to get a great military deal at Disney theme parks in Florida and California.
If you’re currently serving or retired military (active, Guard, Reserve, NOAA and Public Health Service Commissioned Corps) or a spouse, discounted tickets are available through several options. My family and I have been taking advantage of these discounts for well over a decade, often going several times a year.
(Updated September 2019)
I think the Disney Theme Parks are the ideal places for military families to let go and forget, at least for a short while, their stressful lives filled with deployments, PCS moves, and many other things that only military families have to deal with.
Disney is very good at creating a totally immersive experience, so that all you think about while you’re there is having fun!
Here is a breakdown of all the different Military Discounted tickets that are available to our community and where you can get them.
Disney Armed Forces Salute Tickets – These highly discounted tickets are offered for specific time periods at highly discounted set prices. These tickets are about half off of what you would pay at the gate for an equivalent ticket.
For 2019 at Disney World they offer 4 and 5-day tickets with the Hopper option, Plus option, or both options. At Disneyland they offer a 3 or 4-Day Hopper ticket.
For 2020 at Disney World they offer 4, 5, and 6-day tickets with the Hopper option, Plus option, or both options. At Disneyland they offer a 3 or 4-Day Hopper ticket.
Purchase at Base Ticket Offices, Shades of Green or direct at Disney ticket windows (sales tax added at Disney). There are lots of rules for these tickets!
See our Disney Armed Forces Salute Page for full details and prices
Regular Military Discounted Disney Tickets – These slightly discounted tickets have always been available through Base Ticket Offices. They come in various lengths (1-10 days at WDW and 1-5 days at DL) with or without the options mentioned above.
These can only be purchased at Base Ticket Offices (including Shades of Green)!
See our Regular Military Discounted Disney Tickets Page for full details and prices
Shades of Green Stars and Stripes Passes – These are special length of stay passes sold by Shades of Green the military only resort at Walt Disney World. They are from 2 to 10 day tickets that include theme park admission for the number of days on the ticket, the ability to park hop, and the same number of admission to WDW’s water parks and other entertainment venues like mini-golf or Disney Quest. These tickets are only slightly discounted for the military from the regular prices, but they provide a great all-inclusive option for when the Disney Armed Forces Salute Tickets aren’t the right choice. You must be staying at a hotel or resort on WDW property in order to be eligible to buy these (besides being military).
Purchase only from Shades of Green!
See our Stars and Stripes Page for more
My family has used all of these types of tickets over the years, during many fun Disney trips.
