Are you a Disabled Veteran?
Then you are eligible for a variety of discounts depending on your exact status,but proper ID is a must.
I get lots of great questions from my readers via email and in comments on my blog posts. Some of the questions can be answered by my Disney Armed Forces Salute FAQ, others take some thought or more research on my part.
Occasionally I’ll get several different requests for the same information in a short period of time. When I do, I know I need to get that info out to everyone.
I just received three questions asking me to to clarify if disabled vets are eligible for Disney’s Armed Forces Salute.
100% permanently disabled (DAVPRM) veterans are eligible for Disney’s Armed Forces Salute. They must have a Retired ID card with the code: DAVPRM printed on it.
Here is a link to more info on this discount
Shades Of Green Benefits as well
100% Disabled Vets are also eligible to stay at Shades of Green (the military owned and operated reasort on Disney property) and purchase military discounted tickets there. Shades of Green’s policy says “Honorably Discharged Veterans with 100% service-connected disability (and their families)” are eligible. Required documentation is a DD Form 1173 or DD Form 2765.
If you are not 100% disabled or retired there are a couple of discounts that you still qualify for.
You are eligible to stay at Shades of Green in the months of September and January with your DD-214, see this information.
Other offers generally appear just prior to November each year, so watch for these.
Shades of Green offers discounted tickets for Disney, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, and many more local Orlando Attractions.
Hope this info helps, be sure to take some time to review the info on my site, there is lots to go through!
