Where to Buy Military Discounted Disneyland Tickets
It is not possible to get a military discount on these tickets directly through Disney at their ticket windows, online or by phone!
The MWR system sells Disneyland Resort Tickets at a slight discount through Base Ticket Offices.
Some ticket offices maintain a good variety of Disneyland tickets in stock, while others only keep a few types on hand. Some Ticket Offices don’t keep any in stock. If you desire tickets that they do not carry, they may be able to order exactly what you want.
Be sure to check on purchasing your tickets at least 2 weeks or more prior to when you want to have them in hand, as it may take a week or so to order them if needed.
Many Base Ticket Offices sell Disneyland tickets long distance.
Buy Disney Armed Forces Salute Tickets from Camp Pendleton by Phone and FedEx. Look for the info on Camp Pendleton part way down.

Disneyland Food Military Discounts
Disneyland does not offer military Discounts on food. However, Military Discounts are available for you at some non-Disney owned locations at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney.
Downtown Disney is the Disneyland Resort’s dining, shopping and entertainment area. There you’ll find great dining options, many merchandise stores (Disney and others), as well as entertainment venues.
Below you’ll find a list of Downtown Disney locations that offer military discounts:
|Catal Restaurant & Uva Bar/Lounge||10%|
|Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria||10%|
|Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen||10%|
|La Brea Bakery||10%|
|Earl of Sandwich||10%|
|Ghirardelli Chocolate Company||10%|
Note: From time to time your may have a server who is not up to speed.
In the past some servers were knowledgeable about the military discount their location offered, but others had to ask their manager. So be sure to ask them to double check if they say they don’t offer one!!!
Also don’t be afraid to ask at locations not on the list! You never know, at one location without a military discount the person gave me his Disney cast member discount and thanked me for my service.
How Does Disney Verify Military ID?
When Military tickets are purchased on base, your Base Ticket Office will verify your eligibility with your military ID. This is for all ticket purchases.
Then for the Disney Armed Forces Salute Tickets, Disney requires that you to activate the tickets upon arrival at a Disneyland Resort Guest Relations window. To do this you will show your current/valid military ID.
The Regular Military Discounted Disneyland Tickets do no require an activation process on arrival, so no ID is required.
See my post on Salute Ticket Activation
Can a Military Spouse Activate Disney Salute Tickets?
Yes, absolutely they can. Spouses are allowed to activate the Disney Armed Forces Salute Ticket in place of the member. The member is allowed 6 Salute Tickets during the offer period, the spouse may activate these in place of the member not in addition to. They do not have an allotment of their own Salute tickets.
